Crazy Rhythms comments
Comments for the album Crazy Rhythms by The Feelies:
"Raised Eyebrows" is just about the most teenage song of all time.
'Crazy Rhythms' is a folk-rock and 'bubblegum' classic. The overall sound is icy and alienating, like an android clone of the Byrds. The playing is almost amateurish in its simplicity of delivery but paradoxically geometrically complex in its structure. The strumming guitars are played frantically, whilst the melodies have the feeling of being electronically 'processed' to create a neurotic rhythm and decadent minimilist trance that has delusions of the Velvet Underground with hints of Jonathan Richman. The jingle-jangle of British guitar bands of the 1980s like Orange Juice, the Only Ones and the Pooh Sticks clearly adopted the Feelies approach. But what sets 'Crazy Rhythms' apart is the fluency with which the band merge traditional genres such as vaudeville and country & western while injecting Eastern pastoral elements allied to lethal doses of the modern elements: bursts of psychedelic guitar, obsessive repetitions of patterns, hypnotic vocals and exasperated percussion. Probably the highlight is the 'acid' jam of the title track. The song combines a demonic quality to tight arrangements which oscillate between transcendence and ecstatic detached decadence. It also appears as a kind of alien 'drama' without climax or end. The vocal harmonies are humble, and the sound so ascetic as to be sometimes more similar to the Gregorian canon than to rock music.
Really good album! Not one bad song and two pretty sweet covers.
oh yeah..."everybody's got something to hide..." is on this album. its just missing from the track listing for some reason.
Never heard of it.
Thought this LP included The Feelies' cover of "Everybody's Got Something To Hide..." ?
Both uplifting AND depressing, if that means anything. Brilliant songwriting included, the intro to "Original Love" is one of my favourite pieces of pop music ever.
I feel nervous, i cant sit and stand i have to move, move fast. There is always something happening, sometimes with me but most of the time with others.That nervous feeling and the speed of life is the moto of this masterpiece of the 80s.The layers of guitar riffs, badass drumming(use of different drums), smooth and bit sad vocals. That all comes together like magic and earnes the respect of listeners.
