496Re: Super Roots 5
- Aug 4, 2002I'm never one to blindly worship. Yet somehow, in some way, I
manage to find an extreme amount of enjoyment in almost every
single Boredoms release I've encountered. The only Boredoms
records I don'r care for are the REBORE series and, funnily
enough, SUPER ROOTS 5. In the case of REBORE, I just don't
like dance mixes and all four editions (including eYe's) seem to
tread too closely to that territory for my pleasure. And as for
SUPER ROOTS 5-- it's not that I don't love the idea, it's just that
aesthetically I do not enjoy the sounds created within it.
Regarding the rest of the Bore catalog, though, I can find
something to love-- literally, love-- about everything else. I even
love SUPER ROOTS 2 if only because it's probably their most
irreverent release (it's not even 6 minutes long!). I didn't like
CHOCOLATE SYNTHESIZER a lot at first, but I just listened to it
again yesterday and I don't know why I didn't. I think it's top form,
but then again they're rarely not top form. I simply don't judge the
Boredoms the same way I judge other bands, and yet I don't
think that qualifies as a bias, especially when I can honestly say I
love it all and why.
I do have favorites, though. Top three would have to be 3) VISION
CREATION NEWSUN (blissful stuff), 2) POP TATARI (the art of
screaming has never been so marvelously perfected), and not
just 1) in the Bore catalog but an all time 1)-- SUPER AE. Nothing
less than the instantaneous creation of a 27-dimensional
parallel universe every time I put the goddamn thing on. This is
what the Boredoms are.
