Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
San Francisco's Black Rebel Motorcycle Club weren't exactly shy about their taste for early 90s UK rock (Jesus and Mary Chain, Ride, Stone Roses), influences that freely permeated their debut and Take Them On, On Your Own. But Howl argues that B.R.M.C. understands how such devotion can often be a creative straightjacket, stripping their songs bare via almost exclusively acoustic arrangements that variously evoke gospel-tinged Appalachia and gritty country-blues ("Devil's Waitin', "Ain't No Easy Way," "Restless Sinner"), gentle, mouth-harp seasoned folk ("Fault Line") and vocalist Peter Hayes invoking various ghosts of Dylan past on "Still Suspicion Holds You Tight," "Promise," and "Complicated Situation." Indeed, in everything from its music and Allen Ginsburg-inspired title to the LP-deriv! ed running order and artwork, it's an album whose retro-'60s counter-culture vibe may be no less original than their previous musical obsessions, but one whose strong, mature songs and dedicated performances can't be denied. --Jerry McCulley

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It takes a while to grow on you, but my guess is if you *really* like what brmc has done up until now, including excellent b-side stuff, and you appreciate the influences this album seems in tribute to, then you'll LOVE this.
It's become like an old favourite vinyl LP to me and vinyl would be the ideal format for digesting Howl. Thankfully, though, the CD Mastering/ sound quality is phenomenal.

I've only played it once, to check it's ok. Initial listen: as usual (for me), immediately like some tracks, others I'm not sure, so 4 stars. However, with BMRC, I usually find that some tracks need several listens to be appreciated, so I'll persevere with those!
