while i had heard of menwhopause, had not heard their music. reviews in newspapers and rolling stone did help. but then it stood out on the stand and so picked it up.
credits mention the names of 3 sardarjis a malayali chap. (drummer ka naam in thank yous)
while the cd art is uber cool, with around 10 pages, there's no actual picture of the band in it.
coming to the review,
well this album rocks! and how.
it's been just 2 and a half days (of non-stop listening..i mean car-home-car)
and am i hooked!
it's one of those albums that you play from start to finish every time.
some of the tracks that really stood out for me were Time, Brimful, Solitude and the deadly Father Monologue. Just wish it was a little longer. i also really liked Puppets and Paupers and Sweet Despair for the restraint the guitarists employ. And the bass doesn't just play with the kick-ass drummer but chooses to play melodies of his own. Amazing really.
there's just one song that i did not like at all. Floating. I mean it's a great song (or rather could have been) but for masking Sarabjit Chadha's warm/passionate voice by by using effects i think shabani kashyap uses. didn't see a point there. but then chalo maaf kya. because the other 13 songs are super super magical. it's the kind of album that grows on you even more with every listening, can somehow relate to the album and the band. now looking to seeing them live.
I heard menwhopause a few months ago, but since this isn't on Flyte I put of ordering the CD.
I find them to be an excellent 70s-80s rock and roll style band, with drawling vocals and great rhythms. A must listen on the Indian music scene.
Favourite track: Downtown (reminds me a lot of Radiohead/Mogwai in the guitar work)
Four stars only because they haven't put it on Flyte, but only on the stupid Nokia store.
You don't have to be a mastermind to understand menwhopause's music. and this album is just awesome, theyy have matured a lot, lyrically and musically. :)
menwhopause is easily India's best shot at the International Arena.
