FLEUR FATALE, LA: Night Generation: CD

Jan 07, 2008

The second song sounds kinda like a more hypnotic Badfinger, and the fourth song sounds a little like something off the final Move album. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the first song sounds sorta like Emerson, Lake & Palmer, but with sitars instead of Moogs, and the third song sounds like Yes or something, which is a big NO in my book. After that, the songs seem to alternate in a Good Psych ((i.e., the Cynics on lots of ecstasy)) / Bad Psych ((i.e. some echoey dude singing over a bunch of acoustic guitars)) format. Overall, if you’ve ever been stuck at somebody else’s house with fairly different musical tastes than yours and needed to make do with their record collection, and you just sorta played stuff without really being judgmental about it ((not due to any lack of inherent judgmentality on your part, but more due to the fact that you had already judged their record collection just by reading the names on the spines)) because, what the hell, they aren’t your records, you aren’t stuck with ‘em if they suck, so what the heck do you care, you just want to hear some music—THAT is the feeling this record instills in me: The colossal indifference of experiencing some non-kindred soul’s record collection. Party on. BEST SONG: “Night Generation” BEST SONG TITLE: “I Wanna Be Adored” FANASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: This CD package folds out into a big cross shape, with one of the four band member’s mug shots on each of the folded-out panels. And they be oggly. ALTERNATE FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: La Fleur Fatale is managed by Supercock Management.
