Album Review

The Eraserheads are one of the Phlippines' most popular bands, and on 1995's Cutterpillow, the group put forth a strong case for being a talented one, too. Where the band's previous album, Circus, often seemed lightweight and superficial, Cutterpillow is more mature and cohesive, brimming with enjoyable, substantive songs. As before, the band tackles a variety of styles. The delightful "Back2Me" moves on a punkish vibe, the reverb-drenched guitars overlaid with the vocalist singing a catchy, snappy melody reminiscent of Green Day. The opening reverb-edged guitar figure of "Waiting for Me" is enchanting, as is the song itself, highlighted by a rapturous chorus. The acoustic-based "Poorman's Grave" is another fine song among a host of others. In fact, there isn't a bad song on the album. Where 1994's Circus was marred by superficial, almost "kiddie pop" melodies, the melodies on Cutterpillow are more substantive, with only a touch of "kiddie pop" on some songs, including the bridge on "Overdrive," which is otherwise a good song. The band continues its penchant for experimenting in the studio, and several songs are adorned with studio effects, including the squawks on "Yoko" and the Beatles-influenced strings that end "El Huling El Bimbo" (Last El Bimbo Dance). Speaking of the Beatles, this time the Eraserheads have a less overt tendency to imitate the Beatles' style, and they seem more original, more like themselves. This is a fine, enjoyable album, one of the best ever made in the Philippines.

The group can be compared to Nirvana in how they knocked superficial pop from the airwaves and the charts, triggering a wave of commercial acceptance for alternative music.
