Album Review

On Pure Rock Fury, Neil Fallon's narratives provide potent commentaries on popular culture, even as he distances Clutch from more explicitly political musicians by remaining cynical and critical, rather than committing to political action: "At times I'm even tempted to seek the advice of Dr. Laura, but I ignore her/So I take a deep breath and count to ten/Ain't gonna let it get under my skin." Fallon's lyrics remain deliberately vague regarding what precisely the problems are, and draw from myth, literature, and pop culture as they navigate psychedelic landscapes reminiscent, at times, of songs by Black Sabbath or Monster Magnet. Whether singing road songs such as "Sinkemlow" or the anthemic title track, Fallon emerges as the premier wordsmith of stoner rock on Pure Rock Fury. At the same time, unrelenting, driving grooves compel the listener effortlessly into Fallon's landscapes as deep, wide-open riffs swagger beneath wailing solos and pounding rhythms, again recalling the specter of Black Sabbath. Clutch's usual lineup is supplemented with number of cameos, including Scott Weinrich of Spirit Caravan. If Fallon's lyrics are obscure regarding the problem, on thing is made clear: "Pure rock fury is the ultimate solution." This album delivers on its promise and then some as Clutch does what they do best — and the best they've ever done it.

Customer Reviews

Pure Rock Fury!

Surprised there isn't a review for this album. Can never get enough of Clutch! Every album they make has its own individual sound. Good songs include: "Pure Rock Fury", "Careful With That Mic...", "Smoke Banshee", but of course, as always, just buy the whole album, you will NOT regret it. Oh and check out their other stuff as well, especially Elephant Riders.

Crazy good

Every once in a while a band comes along that you wish everyone knew about, but it's also great having them be your little secret. Clutch is that band. They make a comfortable living touring... they have a loyal fan base... they're popular but not too popular. Every time I play them when friends are around, they're like "Who is this and why have I not heard of them?"

Uhhhhh

How is this not a platinum awarded album? I couldnt find this album or its songs anywhere so I had to download it.. Just started listening to the damn thing.. Im on the fourth track and I can say that this has to be the best album I purchased yet.. With that being said I believe the album name should be changed to Pure Rock Genius. Cause it is what it is. Holy Crap.
