Album Review

The Way I Feel is a postmodern pastiche of sounds by avant-garde noise artist Boyd Rice. But, far more accessible than his other work, this album combines Scott Walker sounding orchestration, '60s psychedelic folk, Burt Bacharach style love songs, circus music, and sci-fi atmospherics into one grand, sweeping gesture. With Boyd Rice's cynical and at times apocalyptical, spoken word commentary, the album becomes a doomsday, late-night sketch comedy/tragedy show. On "People," Rice asks, "Do you ever think about what a lovely place the world would be without all the people?" and ponders, "Have you ever dreamed about killing all the stupid people? Not just the unintelligent people, but the sort that don't know anything about anything yet seem to have opinions about everything." The Way I Feel will remind listeners of Baz Luhrmann's "Everbody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)," but Boyd Rice delves deeper into the genre. This is a fascinating trip, but be warned, it loses its luster with repeated listenings and Rice's misanthropic observations are not for everyone.

Customer Reviews

I whis they had more....

A lot of this comes from other CDs. I love the cuts with Coil and Douglas P. More so One should not take him at his word. He is joking about some of this.... No of every one but you might be the right one!

Wicked Album! Buy It!

This album is so eclectic and has so many interesting facets, similar to Boyd Rice himself. Some of the best tracks are 'Perserve Thy Loneliness' and 'Hatesville' which are both lyrically brilliant. There are hilarious moments as well, such as 'Quiet Village Idiot' which it a Martin Denny tune that is sung by Mongoloids. The other reviews who bashed this album obviously has zero sense of humor or understanding of what Boyd is all about. One of the things I love most about this album is when I'm having a party with iShuffle and one of these gems comes on. It's a real Bronx Cheer! BTW, I have this album on vinyl too.

Ah, racist, schmasist, this album is great on your walk to work in D.C.

I first discovered Boyd Rice in '96 through RE/Search magazine's 'Industrial Culture Handbook'. He came off simply as an articulate geek and prankster who made performance art funny and, well, FUN. I next encountered him in a nasty little fanzine of infamy called "Answer ME!" , titled "Rice Ain't Nice", which featured a photo of him sporting a swastika pendant and a black t-shirt with RAPE across it in bold white letters. I am an aetheist Jew, and find Boyd's confrontational misanthrope far more stimulating than the rest of the techno leatherboy garbage that has evolved in the wake of real industrial acts like Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, SPK, Einsturzende, and NON. This album is a collection of various, hard-to-find recordings from different albums, but works great as an album on its' own. When people get all sanctimonious about the cringe-inducing racist epithets and bigoted pronouncements contained herein, I remind them that racism spews from nearly every b-boy's speakers in D.C. and it is considered okay. Why banish Boyd to the trailer park? This stuff is at least as acceptable to me as the average D.L. Hughley sketch, isn't it?

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

One of the most controversial figures in American underground culture, Boyd Rice first came to prominence in the late ‘70s creating experimental noise under the moniker Non. While early recordings such as THE BLACK ALBUM (1978) were lumped into the burgeoning industrial scene, they were nevertheless distinguished by a unique, for the time, application of playback technology--incorporating tape loop and locked-groove turntable manipulations of recordings by bubblegum pop artists like Lesley Gore and...
