Out Of Stock Shellac - Excellent Italian Greyhound
"On Excellent Italian Greyhound, only the band's second release of the decade, the sound remains unmistakably Shellac: guttural, sarcastic, and chock-full of anger. On second thought, perhaps the real reason Shellac is impervious to criticism that they seem content to put out the same record every five years. To Shellac fans, this is just reinforces the notion that these guy are above current trends and care little about selling a product. That said, this is not the strongest of their four full-length albums. Tracks like "Kittypants" and "Spoke" sound more like Pixies outtakes and frankly make you wonder if they're really two of the best nine songs that band could put together in seven years. "Genuine Lulabelle" clocks in at 9:17, a good chunk of which consists of Albini's semi-drunken rants ("Everybody party...party haaaard"). I was actually surprised such a creepy, indulgent moment took so long to surface on a Shellac record, so in a way, it was kind of refreshing. From the joyously sarcastic opener "The End of Radio", the ominous "Paco" , and the nifty guitar work on "Be Prepared", the rest of the album delivers that great punch-in the-gut we've come to expect from the trio" (Read More: http://www.noripcord.com)

About:"Even at their silliest, even when they're treading water, no one else sounds quite like Shellac, and anyone who professes to be a serious music fan without having spent quality time with the band's albums should be forced to familiarize themselves" (http://pitchfork.com)
