Matt Johnson continues to produce great tunes. Quite good You'd never guess this album was recorded 15 years ago - I think there's nothing outdated here. I've always loved Mind Bomb and Dusk, but this is even better. It's darker and rougher, nice soundtrack for the state of the world today One person found this helpful.
The The,s music you either love it or loathe it. Make no mistake, this is one DARK album! Having followed The The from their early days in the s through to their last release several years ago, it came as quite a surprise to hear this album. Not quite what you'd call a triumphant comeback, more of an update on Matt Johnson's ever-downbeat state of mind a situation which, in the past, has given rise to some of the 80's and 90's finest music.
Struggles with paranoia, depression and addictions have made themselves evident on Naked Self in the sparseness of the production and the lack of accessibility you won't find anything approaching a single anywhere here. However, repeated listenings open up the door a little and show that, if nothing else, Matt Johnson is a true original and ought to be praised for his uncompromising approach, particularly after being dropped by his previous record company and left to fend for himself.
I expect further listens to bring increasing rewards and, who knows, maybe I'll end up thinking this is the best album he's ever done. However, for his next project, Matt should consider making something a little more upbeat or accessible which is not to say mainstream , lest he repels even his die-hard fans. I suppose it's only fitting that Dusk should be followed by such darkness. And after the darkness, what next? Let us await the dawn of a new day for The The.
This album emerged a couple of year ago. Johnson had ended his long relationship with Sony and signed for Trent Reznor's Nothing Records which itself was a tiny part of a multi-national.
The lyrical themes continue to hit the listener like a tonne of lead, Boiling Point seeths with the rage of a million commuters and Global Eyes is the ultimate disdainful cry against a world which has sold its soul to the vanity of global consumerism. One can't imagine the likes of Billy Bragg with his cumbersome, crude Marxist blokeishness ever coming up with this astringent diatribe. Weather Belle Cheeeek that out dude. Lead RIFFs:.
