iTunes Review

When Howl, their 2005 detour into acoustic Dylanism, got a surprisingly warm response, one expected more of the same from San Francisco’s BRMC. Instead, they trumped those expectations by daring to return to the big noise of the ‘90s Britpop/Jesus & Mary Chain-rooted electric-guitar sound that made their original reputation here. Which isn’t to say they didn’t learn a few things about focused songcraft from their previous detour into rootsy Americana. As produced by the band and the Call’s Michael Been, early tracks like “Berlin” and the single “Weapon of Choice” never let the sonic murk get in the way of the hooks, a balancing act that doesn’t necessarily yield the same results on the album’s middle third. The album’s gravity point seems the expansive “American X,” which drones with ambitious Psychedelic Furs intensity, if not quite the same hypnotic intrigue. It’s an album that strikes a complicated bargain, daring to return to the aura that won the band its original following, while challenging the converts it won with Howl.

Good Stuff!

These guys just keep on getting better!! "Weapon of Choice" is a great song, so is "American X"...(all of them are good) I must say, the variety of this CD is so wide that you can listen to it over and over and it never gets boring. Do not hesitate buying this CD, if you liked Howl and B.R.M.C, you are going to LOVE Baby 81!!!

Truly Howl's Sister

Unlike Most Artist Brmc does not try to go for the same aound that they usually do. ALthough many people compare this to their debut brmc this album is much different and more professional sounding. The best ytracks that i reccomend are Windows Am i only american x and of course weapon of choice all these songs capture brmc at a new point in their musical carrer

American Rock and Roll.

The seed that became Black Rebel Motorcycle Club -- or BRMC for short -- was planted in 1995, when Robert Levon Been (aka Robert Turner) and Peter Hayes met while attending high school in San Francisco. The two formed a solid friendship and a shared camaraderie based on a mutual love of early-'90s U.K. bands like Ride, the Stone Roses, the Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine. Despite such similar tastes, both joined different bands -- Hayes spent time in the Brian Jonestown Massacre circa...
