Reseña de álbum

After a decade of playing wildly sloppy, thrillingly messed up garage noise that always seemed on the brink of collapse, Black Lips must have felt like changing things up. So, for their 2011 album, Arabia Mountain, they hit the studio with big shot producer Mark Ronson to tightened up and streamlined their sound. The usual murky haze their albums seemed trapped under is gone and the drums now have a healthy kick, the guitars ring out clearly, and the vocals are out front and proud. Added to the usual guitar-bass-drums set-up are acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies, musical saws, and saxophones both for depth and variety. Songs jump out of the speakers with a force the band never had before, fully half the album could be summer rock radio hits or dance party staples. The slower and quieter songs have a clarity and strength only hinted at before, too; "Don’t Mess Up My Baby" shows they don’t have to make a racket to be messed up and nasty. It’s a daring gamble for the band since they could have easily turned off all the fans who love them for the wildness and unpredictability of their early records (and live shows). They could have slicked things up so much that all the unhinged fun and rambunctious antics were paved over and gone. Luckily, Ronson was only interested in clearing away the mess just enough so the songs could come through loud and clear. And they are probably the best batch of songs the band have come up with yet, from inspiring anthems like “Go Out and Get It” or “New Direction” to sweet odes to Spiderman (“Spidey’s Curse”), from dancefloor rockers ("Raw Meat") to spooky, minor-key crawlers (“Mad Dog”) and songs that make you want to quit your job and start a band (“Family Tree”). The band makes the most of the occasion, and with the help of Ronson (and Deerhunter's Lockett Pundt, who also produced a couple tracks), they nail the change in attitude and sound like champs. The timing for a change was right, too, as their 2009 record 200 Million Thousand was a little forced and uninspired. Arabia Mountain is the absolute opposite and could be their best album yet. It’s a stunning rebirth for a band who could have been running out of steam, but more importantly, the record is a blast from start to finish and that’s all that really matters.

The Lips put out some Gems

This Album is SOLID!

Yes there are a few stinkers, but there are 9 really good tracks. 9/17 doesn't sound like a great ratio, but 8 or 9 really good songs on one album is good for any band/musician.

A quick list of the standouts:

1) Family Tree
2) Modern Art
4) Mad Dog (one of my favorites - gotta catch the quick intro sample from the tail end of spidey's curse)
5) Mr. Driver (Another really good one - drums sound really good on this one)
6) Bicentennial Man
8) Raw Meat (A ramones inspired rocker)
10) The Lie
12) Dumpster Dive (a honky tonk/stones inspired tune)
16) You Keep on Running (a slow dark psych jam)

Worth the wait

Like all Black lipsalbums this one sounds different from the others---but,you still know its the Blacklips. The sound is cleaner this time around. Family tree cranks up the album and gives the listeners a good idea whats coming. Bi-centennial man is a stand out track, as is The lie and the great guitar solo at the end. Half the fun of the Black lips is figuring out which old band inspired each song, these guy's know and love music. This album could be the one to expose them to larger crowd of music lovers

Black Lips!

Once again the Black Lips don't fail to surprise and impress! It's very new, and a lot different from their other albums. Much cleaner, and crisp than their self recorded previous works, but it does not take away the rugged punkishness of their true Black Lips sound.
Spidey's Curse and Modern Art are so far my favorites on the album.
A great new album from a great Atlanta band. Doesn't beat 200 Million Thousand, but it is still raw, and 100 % Black Lips! Any fan must have.
And Black Lips please don't sell out!!!!

Biografía

Años de actividad: '00s, '10s

Playing garage-flavored punk rock with a Southern accent, a messed-up and bluesy undertow, and the gleefully destructive impact of a 15-year-old with a bag of firecrackers, the Black Lips are an Atlanta-based combo who, after their debut in 2000, soon developed a reputation as one of the Peach State's wildest bands. The Black Lips consisted of Cole Alexander on lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica, Ben Eberbaugh on lead guitar, Jared Swilley on bass, and Joe Bradley on drums, when they released their...
