Amoeba Review

05/18/2014

Brian Jonestown Massacre’s latest album is just one song after another of badass psych-rockers. The band decamped to frontman Anton Newcombe’s studio in Berlin for this one, and the rock of the krauts certainly comes through on thumping opener “Vad Hande Med Dem?” “What You Isn’t” has glam-rock legs for days, with Newcombe only interrupting its confident strut when he needs to with offhand declarations like “you gotta break down the walls of glass that kick your ass.” “Unknown” jangles with acoustic guitar and echoed-out psych vocals, “Memory Camp” slowly fades into focus with its unhurried hippie glow and sexy solo, and “Duck and Cover” comes in and kicks the album into a higher gear just as it’s in danger of losing steam with a motor-rock stomp. Revelation at times feels cobbled together, but its strength lies in this patchwork feel, each song fully exploring an idea and strengthening the whole. Revelation sounds like Newcombe and co. fully staying true to themselves and without trying to prove anything to anyone, coming up with another brilliant album of hazy rockers.
