3.0 out of 5 stars Deerhoof across the age divide Nov. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
25 Year-Old: This band is amazing! Have you heard these guys?
43 Year-Old: Yeah, I have. This is a good band for sure.
25-Year-Old: You're not as enthusiastic as you should be! These guys are doing something DIFFERENT!
43-year-old: Well, not really. The jump-cut editing and the noise bursts combined with the freaky jamming remind me a lot of Faust, especially on Faust's first album.
25-year-old: Are you saying they're imitating Faust? And who's Faust? You mean DJ Faust?
43-year-old: NO. Faust was a band of insane German hippies who made some really interesting records in the 1970's that influenced a lot of people. Go look up "So Far" by Faust on Amazon. And Deerhoof is not imitating Faust, that's not what I'm saying.
25-year-old: So what ARE you saying, you old coot?
43-year-old: Watch it, kid, you'll be my age someday. What I am saying is that Deerhoof has the same sense of uninhibited experimentalism that Faust had. They sound like they just don't give a flip what anybody thinks and they want to play whatever they want, which is really cool in this corporate rock era.
25-year-old: So you *do* get it.
43-year-old: Of course I do. Listen, punk, I knew about "noise rock" before you were even dirtying your diapers properly. Back in my day we used to call it "art rock" and that's what this is. It's good art rock, with a lot of energy and freakishness. Plus, I like the singer and her weird "The animals will testify against us on Judgment Day" pronouncement on the first song.
25-year-old: That's the second song.
43-year-old: Whatever. I don't consider 30 seconds of bells and burping a song.
25-year-old: You don't think rap is music either.
43-year-old: Don't get me started. Let's just be glad that Deerhoof is a great band that we can both agree on, OK?

5.0 out of 5 stars Shining Star of 2002 March 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
After two albums of clever noise, Deerhoof has the audacity to drop one of the catchiest albums of the last 5 years. Take formidable blasts of raw but soaring, often dissonant guitar, plenty of wild studio trickery, some seriously sugary melodies, and an incessantly cute Japanese chick on vocals, and you only have the ingredients, because the warped noise-pop coming out of your speakers will stick in your head for WEEKS. Very few of the songs sound anything like each other, and they're played so earnestly and unbelaboredly that it sounds as if the band could churn them out at this quality for eternity (and, well, the similar-but-even-more-accessible follow-up Apple O proves that they're far from done). Almost nobody sounds like Deerhoof, and if you like noise- or avant-pop, the music that makes you go giddy with simple enjoyment before you realize just how _interesting_ it is, click the buy button before you have the chance to change your mind. Trust me: this is a tremendous album that never feels like one. It's so simply _GOOD_ you'll forget it's also Great.

Deerhoof. They're so novel and gleeful that their album "Reveille" will be the most refreshing and exciting half hour of your life.
The album perfectly treads the line between the experimental and the conventional. Wildly innovative, it remains highly riff-driven and catchy, with gritty rock 'n' roll guitar licks and organ solos among ever-changing time signatures, casio effects and noise. The mood is so dynamic that you'll feel every emotion through the course of it. The female vocalist is inarticulate and soprano, playing the role of an angelic instrument. But it's not nonsensically experimental; upon close listen it proves to be meticulously structured, but *smarter than us*. It's like listening to music for the first time. You will laugh out loud.
If you like Beck, King Crimson, Radiohead, Ween, the Velvet Underground, Stereolab, and the white Stripes, simultaneously, you will love "Reveille."

5.0 out of 5 stars Follow the light... March 8 2003

Format:Audio CD
Why there haven't been more recommendations for this album suprises me. Buy this. Deerhoof are, without a doubt, at the helm of something life altering...overhwhelmingly simple in its beauty. Along with contemporaries, Dymaxion, Deerhoof astonish with stupor and amazement. And...just wait for Apple O'.
When was the last time music took your breath away?

4.0 out of 5 stars Yoko Ono's Thinking Fellers sing Sonic Youth June 22 2002
By slappy
Format:Audio CD
Despite my moderately retarded intro title above, you can't really describe Deerhoof by lame-o comparisons. It's scuzzed-out guitar rock experimentations that veer toward the precipice, only to pull back into awesome melodies and even quirky pop.
This record is "sing-along-noise"...and that's a real compliment in my universe.
