iTunes Review

Released simultaneously with the 2011 album Heavy Rocks (not to be confused with the 2002 album of the same name!), Attention Please is a surprising turn for a band known for its overwhelmingly heavy approach. Over the years, though, Boris has channeled many different genres, and the most surprising moments here may be hearing lead guitarist Wata now singing. She’s an ethereal vocalist, bringing a 4AD Records goth sense to many songs, from the poppy title track to the swerving, shoegazerish “Hope” and “Spoon.” It’s practically pop music for Boris. “Party Boy” is closer to Belle & Sebastian than to the group’s scorched-earth roots. “Tokyo Wonder Land” still throws plenty of psychedelic guitar into the mix with suddenly danceable beats, while “You” and “Aileron” are more in line with the group’s past interests in muted instrumental sounds. “Les Paul Custom ‘86” captures a touch of Sonic Youth in its whispery passions and dissonant guitar patterns. As always, Boris finds new ways to keep things interesting.

Stop hating people...

Not every Boris album is going to sound the same. If you are a true Boris fan, you should know that by now. This album is legit.

Broaden your horizons and quit having narrow scope of what they "should sound like".

Be fair

To the reviewer who said that this was entirely techno, did you listen past the first song, bc thats the only "techno" song on it. Ok, yeah, this is a bit of a bummer but it isn't the end of the world... Some of the songs are very My Bloody Valentine and some fall into that Crystal Castles/Cold Cave genre that I don't understand. All their records are outliers from the previous, so I guess I'm not surprised (albeit a little disappointed). I will give it to Boris though for not giving a flute about genre constraints.

Should've changed the band name for this album

Terrible. There's no reviews yet because I think people were too disturbed by this album to take a moment to put that feeling to words. Absolutely horrible. I'm all about progression/experimentation. But when you're entire album is just techno and is 900 miles away from any influence you've ever showcased on your previous music which was drone/doom/garage rock/ambient and you give us this. Why bother? Just change the name of the band for releases like this. You gained a huge fanbase with the innovative style and mixture of genres and then deliver this processed techno dung I would expect in a sketchy nightclub in downtown LA. Terrible.

Japanese cult favorite sludge/doom rock trio Boris take their name from a song on grunge godfathers the Melvins' Bullhead album. They also have a lot in common with the Melvins musically, including a fondness for heavily downtuned guitar/bass tones and exceedingly slow tempos. But they also incorporate elements variously drawn from other sources, including psychedelic rock, punk, noise, minimalism, pure sludge-drone music à la Earth, and more. Also, despite the unpretentious psychedelic/stoner rock...
