"Pitched somewhere between the genuinely progressive, psychedelic exploration of the 1960's freak generation, and the lo-fi drones of the late-80's shoegazers, Methodrone is a rich and startling achievement..." (

.. an album that manages to flaunt it's various influences like little gold badges of honour, whilst simultaneously presenting its own unique and distinctive sound and remarkable vision. It's a world away from the more trippy psyche-influenced sound that would follow on albums like Their Satanic Majesties Second Request and the garage-rock inflected Take It From The Man!, with the band here instead fusing elements of Jefferson Airplane, Cream, Moby Grape, Love, and the Velvet Underground, with distinctive elements of Loop, Ride, Spacemen 3, the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. As a result, Methodrone essentially picks up where albums like Darklands, Isn't Anything and Nowhere left off... with The Brian Jonestown Massacre taking the influence of 60's chart pop and psychedelic rock, and drowning them beneath waves of heavenly feedback. On top of that, we have some fantastic percussion and those drifting vocals, which here sound like Mick Jagger impersonating Kevin Shields, as layers and layers of different guitar effects rise and fall like crashing waves all around us. Amidst this we have the bass locking into a heavy groove that lulls the listener into a dreamlike stupor, as the machine gun patter of the drums and a hint of female backing vocals merge with those of the BJM's shamanesque leader Anton Newcombe to create something that is both ethereal, dreamy and transcendent, whilst also managing to sound rough, raucous and defiantly anthemic..
