Album Review

Higher-pitched and noisier than an army of little dogs, the quintet of youngsters known as the Blood Brothers spew out a relentless wad of spit on Burn Piano Island, Burn, a ferocious album that singes the ears. Their passionate, insane, ranting hardcore is surely not for everyone. It's a truly extreme album at a time when the word "extreme" is used to sell snowboards and SUVs. The Blood Brothers features two singers trading off shrieking into the mic and surprisingly they're shrieking some really fancy lyrics, which is probably the most interesting aspect of the band. On the title song they yelp, "Charred toucans weaving their black sky quilt?/Burn piano island burn!/The seashells scream out celestial code/Melting on the shore inside a flame snow globe." All the lyrics are very much in this surreal poetry vein. An unusual band indeed. They occasionally, though not very often, slow up the torrent on songs like "Six Nightmares at the Pinball Masquerade" and "The Salesman, Denver Max," using, gasp!, acoustic guitars, pianos, and a xylophone. Kids looking to anger their parents to the point of losing it should pick up this CD, turn up the stereo, and lock the door.

I miss The Blood Brothers

Sure Jaguar Love and Past Lives are good but listen to this album and weep knowing nothing like this will ever come out again

HATERS

in response to brutalkitty's review.... blow off.... this album is absolutely amazing.... the vocals weird riffs and strange noises is what made me so into this band in the first place... i had never heard of them b4... and i bought the cd as a new release bc the cover art was strange and different... i was an instant fan the first time i listened to it... the organized chaos that the band puts out is amazing and i have yet to hear it from anyone else.... they are a one in a million band and if youre thinking of buying any of their music dont let the haters discourage you... these guys are amazing and personally i think that they will never top piano island but the albums they released afterwards (Crimes and Young Machetes) were awesome as well... so my suggestion to all you newcomers out there that havent heard tbb to start with piano island then go to crimes... if youre into indie chaos punk then you'll have no problem getting into these guys.. oh and whether you live them or not... see them live.... it will change your life forever... well kids thats all for now.... enjoy
