CD Rock Concert [Velvet Crush]
CD Ballad of Ric Menck [Bonus Tracks] [Remaster]
Alternative Press (4/97, p.76) - 4 (out of 5) - "Less power and more pop than Velvet Crush....simple, clean strumming...with shambling sound and wide-eyed romanticism. All eleven Menck ballads at once might cause cavities. But taken in small doses, there is some magnificent, timeless pop music here."
CD Stereo Blues
Uncut (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[A]n album both luminous and agreeably bleak....Chastain's depressive vocals and Menck's madcap drumming have few equals..."Magnet (p.128) - "[There's] much sonic power behind the pop on STEREO BLUES..."CMJ (p.49) - "With STEREO BLUES, Velvet Crush has finally made an album that keeps with its pigeonhole. And rather than a concession, it sounds like a gem."
Spin (6/98, p.129) - 7 (out of 10) - "...an unhesistatingly rhythmic update of incident-crammed '60s instrumental pop, working from a fond retroisim that ranges from James Bond films to the daft history of suit-and-tie radio voices....Utterly snappy and effortlessly inclusive, it zooms past crankier, knottier sources and antecedents...erasing the memory of less slick stuff..."Entertainment Weekly (4/3/98, pp.91-92) - "...as with DJ-propelled records, some of DECKSANDRUMSANDROCKANDROLL is best heard in a club. But for guys who took for their name the derogatory slang for computer geeks, the Propellerheads don't need to get out more. They've created an entertaining world all their own." - Rating: A-Alternative Press (5/00, p.120) - Included in AP's "10 Essential Dance Albums That Rock" - "...[They] took the Big Beat sound and turned it on its cliched ear, expanding the formula to include lush James Bond-type atmosphere...and real hip-hop artists...among other innovations..."Vibe (5/98, p.138) - "...This disc, a relentless crush of soul, hip hop, and techno influences, is shaping up as one of the year's most coveted dance-floor releases..."Melody Maker (1/17/98, p.36) - "Propellerheads cut through...like a silver sabre, bringing a style and imagination to the party that makes the superbly named DECKSANDRUMDANDROCKANDROLL a pure pleasure."
Spin (12/95, p.125) - 7 (out of 10) - "...an almost Hawthornian Gothic. Linkous broadcasts his perambulatory figures and `Dear Prudence' balladry from some right scary places....a tremolo crush of organs, tape loops, and fuzz vocals--like listening to the Velvet Underground in the cells of Angola..."Option (1-2/96, p.118) - "...engaging triumphs of low fidelity, but the sound is not `lo-fi' per se. Clear, sparse guitar lines drift along soft rhythms on most tracks, with off-kilter instrumental flourishes erupting every so often..."Melody Maker (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #20 on Melody Maker's list of 1996's `Albums Of The Year.'Melody Maker (5/11/96, p.49) - Bloody Essential - "...Fanbloodysoaraway heedlessheartachetastic....my oh my, the boy's songs are fine....Lavishness beyond hoping for in 16 brief tracks and a million ideas: a gobsmackingly confident debut album without a bad idea..."NME (Magazine) (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #10 in NME's 1996 critics' poll.NME (Magazine) (5/4/96, p.56) - 9 (out of 10) - "...Songs that are as fragile as a bouquet of rotting roses, heavy American gothic masterpieces delivered so hushed you can hear a feather drop....unconditionally recommended to all those who feel that life just might be one bad joke..."
