Product Description


The name "Brian Jonestown Massacre" may seem hokey, but it accurately sums up the band's aesthetic. Their key musical reference point is late Rolling Stones member Brian Jones, and their ramshackle, self-destructive vibe is all too reminiscent of Jim Jones, the Guyana cult overlord who killed himself and his congregation with poisoned vats of Kool-Aid. Strung Out in Heaven, the band's eighth release since 1995, is a retrodelic janglefest of Altamontian proportion. Blending the smarmy, drug-addled sonics of late-'60s Stones with the chime of the Byrds, the hooks of the Animals, and the monochromatic drone of Velvet Underground within their swirl of 12-string guitars, farfisa organs, and jaded vocals, Brian Jonestown Massacre cull some of the most head-spinning moments of '60s rock into a single, unified expression. But unified is the last word you'd use to describe their interband chemistry. Since they formed, they have been through nearly 60 members, and their live shows are as likely to end in a flurry of fists as a transcendent, stupefying jam. Savor them before they self-destruct. --Jon Wiederhorn

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have named this one Zero Inspiration July 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
Believe the bad reviews. I've listened to a couple of earlier cds by this band and felt, despite their influences doing it much better, they were still an okay listen. This cd, however, has about the most consistently uninspired "melodies" of any I've ever heard-- and trust me, it wasn't their intention. You can tell that with these tracks, they basically came up with some music and then tried to come up with the song melody for it, and coming up wayyyy short.
Textbook examples of uninspired songwriting. Skip it.
By the way, listening to it did inspire me, however. I've heard bad cds before, but this was the first to inspire me to take the time to sign up for a yahoo account and submit a bad review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Have U Been Dec 6 2008
Format:Audio CD
If for some reason you could find this set of songs unappealing I would have to question your life experience, give it a listen and if by the end you're not digging it then I don't know what planet you came from, as this is set of tunes that I continue to listen to year after year and still gets frequent rotation which is saying alot for I have over 5,000 slabs of vinyl about 3,000 cd's and over 400GB of music on an external hardrive, have lived on earth for almost 50 years and have been playing and collecting music since I was 5, so if you have read this far buy the cd and get ready to enrich your life thanks to Anton and his rare genius then go buy the rest of his music..

5.0 out of 5 stars solid Feb. 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
every one of their albums is solid, and this is no exception. it's their 'major label' debut (and finale), so it's a little more tame than previous efforts, and ones that followed, but it's ear candy.
but do yourself a favour... go buy this on e-bay. TVT printed 100,000 or so copies and flooded record stores with it, but it only sold about 25,000, so there's tonnes out there. average price on e-bay is about $0.99 US.

4.0 out of 5 stars it's not so easy to turn it on anymore Aug. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
way back in the 1960's, you could plug in your 12-string fender and illuminate the world around you. As Duke said, "you could strike sparks anywhere." Today, not so much. But there remain those noble souls who are trying to rekindle the glory. This band puts out so many albums, but this one is the truest to capturing the sixties sound. Full of blurry-eyed optimism, songs like "let's Pretend that its summer" and "Lantern" discover new territory on a battlefield that was abandoned long ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its worth a serious listen Dec 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I think this is a very satisfying mix of tunes with obvious links to the early Stones, as the band's name implies. The whole disc is good listening, although some of the tunes clearly stand out from the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars go get your creed records March 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
i'm glad the world seems to hate this band and grab on to whimpy cheese-rock bands like creed. if it's a challenging, rough around the edges (way rough around the edges) rock band you're after, then check out the brian jonestown massacre, and see what rock and roll is all about: medication, pain, love, and loss. on second thought, stick with your creed records, you'll be happier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Echos of Stones, Dylan and Who, but well done. Aug. 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You can almost name the influences that seep through each song, but BJM does it so well, you can't care. The disc is vibrant and murky all at once. As far as comments on the recording style goes, it's all technique just as Beastie Boys use scrtaches and pops reminiscent of the true vinyl sound. BJM is a testament to the fact that true, raw rock & roll doesn't die. I recommend it heartily.
