5.0 out of 5 stars No Mistakes, No regrets... Oct. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
these guys are pushing the envelope as far as it can possibly go. they have come out with an album which is totally flawless. they have struck the perfect balance between the loud/quiet dynamic, whilst still maintaining as much atmosphere as there Scottish friends Mogwai ever achieved.
standout thrash tracks such as "Totally Natural" and "A Perfect Teenhood" make you wanna go nuts, whilst the gentler "Clair de Lune" and "Sigh Your Children" both wrap you up in their melancholy magnificence just as effectively.
the album plateaus with the epic "Aged Dolls", an amazing piece which uses suppression and release to bring you up, down, up, then down a bit more, and then kind of leaves you hanging somewhere in between the two extremes.
peppered thruout the album are short 1 or 2 minute "intermissions" of bizarre drumloops and guitar melodies, which are comprised of equally bizarre names- "Children of the Hydras Teeth", "The Day the Air Turned Blue" for example.
i cant say enough how good this album is. definetely one of my favourite albums of all time, and an album which deserves to be remembered all thruout time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing emo-core Aug. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
........And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead are a strong flash in a current dead-pan of indie rock. Showing obvious influences in different aspects of Sonic Youth, Radiohead, Fugazi, Nirvana all wrapped in a trance inducing sound that is a step ahead of other underground acts of today. The emotional and beautiful "Mistakes and Regrets" is the album's flagship song that despite it's emo-progressive structure and lyrics, shows punk and grunge elements that puts the band in a league of their own. Amazing studio work is also apparent (like the acid house-like opening to "Flood of Red").
The stepping stone between their self-titled debut and Source Tags and Codes is a must-have for any minimalist Austin punk but also attractive to more mainstream Thursday, Taking Back Sunday-type emo heads. Anybody who can listen to Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation, Radiohead's OK Computer or Husker Du's Zen Arcade will find this collection of music to be an essential soundtrack to your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense Sept. 14 2002
By Paul H.
Format:Audio CD
I'm surprised by the reviewer who says that Trail Of Dead cannot capture the intensity of their live shows on record. I saw them live recently, and they are still one of the most incredible bands I've ever seen live (and this was probably one of their tamer performances too). But I do think that Madonna captures the intensity of their live shows. Madonna is a lot harsher, chaotic, and noisy than their brilliant Source Tags & Codes, but the melodies and musicianship make for one of the best releases of 1999. Trail of Dead have been compared to Sonic Youth on this record, but they are in no way ripping SY off. Trail of Dead have more of an upfront hardcore-punk sound, are much angrier, and have less of an "avant-garde" or "art rock" slant. Again, the combination of melody and noise is brilliant; I was really suprised how intense the band sounds on this record. A few songs do fall apart ("Totally Natural" and the must-hear-to-believe "A Perfect Teenhood"), and the rest are played with much vigor and passion. The strings that are oh-so-prevalent on ST&C pop up here and there (including on some eerie interludes) and do seem to hint at what these guys were headed into for the future. And the album's closer ("Sigh Your Children") is so gorgeous, I wish it would have gone on much longer (two minutes is not enough). Trust me, see them live and buy the album. You'll be getting your money's worth both ways.

Hey! HEY!! Where are the soundbytes???
Possibly my vote for best album of 1999, "Madonna" has less to do with Ms. Ciccone than with the mythic lure of the divine, as manifested by these four energetic dervishes in washes of dense guitar noise and whirling drums. The production here is more immediate than their debut (although never as 'warm' as their privately issued demo cassette which will rearrange your furniture if you're not careful!) and has a more textured feel.
"Mistakes and Regrets" wraps despair in a screeching yet almost angelic guitar veneer, culminating in crashing, galloping drums. "Totally Natural" is less inspired, and devolves into a blatantly Sonic Yoop spin in mid-stride. But "Claire De Lune', ruminating over lost love and hopes, takes on an infectuous 3/4 time spin, as much a lament as a lullaby.
"Madonna" lacks some of the muscle found on their debut, but acts as one frictionless piece, flowing imperceptibly from one title to the next. In the end, "A Perfect Teenhood" wraps things up as it usually does onstage, when giant amplified-rubber-band guitars make repeated glacial headbutts into oblivion (or, in a live context, a pile of rubble).
Sure, these guys listened to "Daydream Nation" a few times too many, but at least someone is carrying the flag again.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of 1999 Feb. 6 2000
By Duke
Format:Audio CD
I agree with previous reviewer it's slicker than the band's self-titled debut but that doesn't make it less. Overall I prefer the coherency of "Madonna" - in fact one of the miracles of this group is the way they make chaos coherent - even melodious. Another miracle is the drumming: best I've heard on any rock and roll record in years. Even the songs that didn't initially jump out at me have become favorites: for example I wasn't all that crazy about "Totally Natural" and then late one night I was driving down the freeway with two friends and when this song came on we all fell silent, listening as it started out slowly, then went into high-speed overdrive, getting even faster until it seemed to explode, then picked itself up from its own ashes and slowly, lyric by lyric, rebuilt itself into an even greater frenzy. It was like travelling through seven dimesions in the space of about four minutes. So what do these guys sound like? The only comparison I can make is the Sonic Youth of "Daydream Nation" - but that record and no other - and even then Sonic Youth has more of a high-end sound - less muscular and more offkey - than Trail of Dead. The only record of 1999 I like as much is Built to Spill's "Keep It Like A Secret" and as time goes on I think I'm beginning to prefer "Madonna".

Madonna has it all. Crunching guitars, melodies, bombast, etc., but it's quieter moments are what make it stand out, if not above Source Tags & Codes, then pretty close. Read more
