The Brian Jonestown Massacre Bringing It All Back Home Again Colored 180g Vinyl LP
The ever-prolific Brian Jonestown Massacre takes a detour here with the six-song, half-hour Bringing It All Back Home Again which stands in stark contrast to their usual sprawling opuses. Comparable to that of their previous Thank God for Mental Illness, the record is mostly acoustic and country-tinged, reminiscent (as the title suggests) of the period when Bob Dylan was making the transition from acoustic to electric material, as well as the sort of country shuffles that popped up on some Rolling Stones records.
Yet the record doesn't resort to imitation either, with the BJM affecting a more rural, lonesome-sounding tone and a moodier, more deliberate pace; the more traditional feel meshes well with Anton Newcombe's twisting of country-gospel lyrical cliches into rock & roll attitude.
Since it's probably the BJM's most countryish outing to date, Bringing It All Back Home is able to differentiate itself from their extensive back catalog with its conciseness apart from the epic closer "Arkansas Revisited."
