|Primus- Antipop CD
Primus is sometimes considered a square peg in a round hole amongst the
band's musical peers. Yet somehow, Les Claypool and company have always
managed a perfect fit. On ANTIPOP, the band continues on its fearless
musical journey. The impressive roster of guest artists is only part of the reason why this album is a must for music fans who walk their own paths.
Against The Machine's Tom Morello brings his percussive and unnerving
guitar sound to "Electric Uncle Sam" and "Mama Didn't Raise No Fool."
On the tongue-in-cheek "Sacred Cow," Les Claypool's distinctive
slap-bass style shines. Guitarist Larry LaLonde is conservative yet
brilliant in his moody, textural playing that is fitting without ever
being flashy. "Eclectic Electric" brings together an unlikely pair of
guests: Jim Martin and Metallica's James Hetfield, both of whom were in
bands with the late Cliff Burton. Drummer Brian "Brain" Mantia, who
returned to Primus for THE BROWN ALBUM, neatly fills the vacancy left
by Tim Alexander, offering complex rhythms and jazz-influenced
dynamics. ANTIPOP expresses the essence of a unique band embraced by
people who don't mind a little pork in their soda.
