This effort is hugely satirical and darkly funny. I think maybe it is why so much initial negative feedback came from "fans" who were looking for another "NWO".I respect the wit and versatility of MR.J and Mr.B by throwing us a curve and cracking a joke....then again i imagine being declared clinically dead 3 times might do that to you - develope a lighter side and let you see that it ain't all bad, but then again i'm just guessing. So relax people, their is a lighter side of the spoon......may the light pour over us.
This album just BLEEDS enmity. But it's executed in a suttle, and sometimes funny way. I love the melancholy that spews out of songs like Nursing Home (a trippy and tweaky track) and Eureka Pile. The acrid sound of Kaif... and of course, the disarraying backdrop of 10/10, Whip & Chain and Bad Blood... and the jazzy exterior of Step (which samples one of my favorite movies).
Most people rejected Spoon's unique and seething style. I guess it's an acquired taste... I'm just one of the few that happened to acquire that taste. This album is darkly funny, subtle, grey and just perfect. I'm not gonna say you're not a true Ministry fan if you detest this masterwork... but I WILL say all you Psalm 69-heads need to learn how to appreciate diverse music.
Spoon is dingy... it's muddy... it's coagulated... it's weird... and it's an absolute masterpiece.
