Format: Audio CD
Let me preface this by saying that this is one of the most amazing albums I have ever heard. It is Newcombe in his finest hour. After downloading B.S.A. and the ode to Davis Bowie I switched off my computer and went straight to the record store. It was the best fifteen dollars I ever spent. Cabin Fever is purely tragic, and Straight Up and Down is possibly the best song of the 'psyche-pop' genre. You should get yourself a copy of this album. Its worth it.

Great addition to the collection. Love Straight Up and Down / the theme for Boardwalk Empire. I was so pumped to hear Straight Up and Down the first time I watched the HBO show. Good to know BJM gets recognized in pop culture.

I really only bought this CD for the theme song to Boardwalk Empire - which I totally love. Honestly don't listen to the rest much.

Out of Timeless... April 25 2005
By Eric J. Hradecky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a Huge fan of the Dandy Warhols, the Warlocks and the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club for years. I have been aware of the BJM for as long and its connection to the above mentioned bands. But until a week ago I owned no BJM.

I was a fool.

There are so few records in one's life that change the fundamental way you listen to music. For me Rundgren's "Something/Anything" in '74, the Sex Pistols "Bullocks" in '77 and Big Star's "Sister/Lover" in 1990 (OK I was late on Chilton too) were a couple of the seminal life changers for me.

Now I must add Anton Newcombe and the BJM's "Take It From the Man."

I have had "Take It..." for a week now and can't even move on to the other three cd's I purchased by the BJM in my small effort to catch up with this genius. This record is just UNBELIEVABLE! Anton Newcombe & the BJM in general and this record specifically are a HEAVY throw back to the jangle and soul of 60's Psycheledic Rock.

You've probably heard this before about BJM. But DON'T get bogged down in thinking this band is only about making retro music or that they are an anachronism. They are not! Newcombe, Hollywood and the rest use VERY MODERN tools to make this music while not getting pigeon-holed by Digital Technology. This record is truly Out of Timeless!

If you're like me and have heard all the critical praise for BJM and just haven't gotten around to buying their music, then do what I've done and BUY, BUY, BUY!!! And start HERE.

my favorite Oct. 28 2000
By chris romano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is probably my favorite BJM release...they bounce back and forth between Stones, Beatles, and Bowie homage-parodies without a hitch.
To say the singer stinks is to misunderstand what it's all about. He captures the swaggering, self-absorbed, heroin-addicted brit quite well. Tracks 5 through 12 are a non-stop ride through the late 60's/early 70's.
If you take the trip, be sure to say hi to "Keef" before lead singer Anton kills him on (the channeled) Brian Jones' behalf.

real rock April 14 2002
By J. Whittaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
real rock music is messy, deranged, and often angry. the trick is making it fulfilling to listen to, which bjm does with each successive record. they somehow drench their tunes in great moody noise, while keeping all the traditional elements needed for groovy rock songs. great songs that sound like people making them are hard to come by, and these guys hit it every time. thanks for the alternative to creed and linkin park.

I Am SO Late to This Party. %$#&@! Feb. 16 2011
By Paul DeZan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album and "Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request" (an utterly different but utterly complimentary record) are the best rock records I've come across in a hell of a long time. A little sprite of a girl tried to turn me on to BJM at the time of "Methodrone" and it just didn't take. 15 years later, a tight re-edit of "Straight Up and Down" is the theme to HBO's 20s gangster drama "Boardwalk Empire" and noting that got me to buy the three amazing records BJM put out in 1996 (the third one is "Thank God for Mental Illness," also essential). I haven't listened to much else since. Newcomb (and Matt Hollywood) have an unsteady genius for channeling the past into some kind of messed-up now that is absolutely uncanny. The first time I listened to this album I broke out laughing about eight times at how perfectly this band echoes classic themes and structures from 60s Britrock without copying anything by anybody.

Not that anyone knew it, but in 1996 BJM was the best rock and roll band in the world. Just buy this.
