Album Saturday: Experimental Rock — Summary

Captain BeefheartSafe as Milk
★★★

Interesting themes and ideas brought to life. Sometimes a nice, surrealistic setting comes short by returning to the conventional blues rock scheme. An album worth listening to.

 


Tom Waits
Swordfishtrombones
★★★★★

By mixing together jazz, blues and a piece of his own soul, Tom Waits has truly found a music niche of his own. Enter it for an ultimate chillout.

 


The Monks
Black Monk Time
★★★★

A clear “stomping” beat that fuses the whole album works well. Blast off with The Monks!

 


Os Mutantes
Mutantes
★★★★☆

A Brazilian psychedelic rock jewel, extremely rich with ideas. The Spanish language doesn’t disturb, but on the contrary sounds funny and leads on to a mental equilibrium.

 


The Mothers of Invention
Freak Out!

Partially unlistened

 


The Godz
Contact High with the Godz

Partially unlistened

 


Faust
Faust
★★★★

If I should compare Faust with anything, then it is basically Revolution n.9 taken much further. This record came from another plane, yet is harmonic musically.

 


David Bowie
“Heroes”
★★★

Beaty and the Beast as well as the ambient tracks on the B-side of the album are nice, but overall the album failed to impress me.
