Album Review

It's difficult to discuss a solo record without examining how it fits with that particular artist's former band. And Joe Lally's Nothing Is Underrated is no exception. The first three tracks are perfect examples of what the non-drum-playing members of Fugazi brought to that band. "Day Is Born" is a prime example of Joe Lally's contribution, that organic, woody, slow groove that was so prevalent on Red Medicine; "Scavenger's Garden," featuring the twin talents of Guy Picciotto and Eddie Janney, is a slightly less-hinged affair, with feedbacking guitars à la "Burning" or "Bad Mouth"; and "Map of the World," which features Ian MacKaye, is reminiscent of the quieter explorations of the band that were brought to light on the Instrument soundtrack. That is — most certainly — not to say that Nothing Is Underrated is Lally simply rehashing his early work. While There to Here was a slightly jarring affair, best described as an artist suddenly out on his own and finding his feet, Nothing Is Underrated is Lally a bit more comfortable, settling into a really solid groove at times ("Via Nomentana," "Skin and Bone"), calling up a mantra at others ("Motora"), and yet others summoning up the ghosts of the Velvet Underground without sounding — as is the case with most bands or artists who try — like some sort of sycophant. Nothing Is Underrated is a fine record that shows, without a doubt, that Lally is continuing to grow as an artist on his own. ~ Christopher M. True, Rovi

Best known as a member of Fugazi, Joe Lally first learned bass after seeing a Minor Threat show with Dag Nasty's Peter Cortner, which prompted them to form a band. In 1987 he joined up with Ian MacKaye, Brendan Canty, and Guy Picciotto to make Fugazi, one of the most important groups in the American underground scene. In 2002, as Fugazi was on hiatus, Lally got together with ex-Frodus members Shelby Cinca and Jason Hamacher as Black Sea and released a single that year, soon after changing their name...
