Reseña de álbum

When a band goes through a great deal of personnel changes, it can easily become inconsistent and erratic. Just ask the Commodores, Deep Purple, or Black Sabbath — whenever one of those bands unveiled a new lineup in the 1980s or 1990s, you never knew if its next album would be decent or disappointing. On the other hand, The Post Wave demonstrates that a band can have numerous personnel changes and still keep it together creatively. The Blue Meanies were definitely a revolving door in the 1990s, but on 2000's The Post Wave, the Chicagoans have no problem sounding focused, tight, and inspired. Blending punk with everything from ska to jazz, this forceful, abrasive CD is as challenging musically as it is lyrically. Public Image Ltd. (PiL), the Dead Kennedys, and Gang of Four are among the obvious influences, and the pointed, often socio-political lyrics address everything from poverty ("Do the Tightbelt") to environmental concerns ("Chemicals") to racism ("All the Same").

But thankfully, they remain uncompromising on their first MCA release.

Chicago's the Blue Meanies have continued their wacky style of hyper, obnoxious ska-punk that additionally fused with jazz and funk influences since forming in 1989. Debuting in 1991 with "Grandma Shampoo"/"Dickory Dock," this single would be the start of their lengthy discography and revolving lineup. Although their personnel was continually changing, the Meanies' sound would remain as they released the albums Pave the World (1992), Kiss Your Ass Goodbye (1995), Full Throttle (1997), and the live...
