商品説明

Terrorvision's second album gathers all of the band's junk punk, mock rock, and cartoon metal leanings into a ferocious, focused package designed to get entire stadiums moshing instantaneously. On How to Make Friends and Influence People, Bradford's finest rock like there's no tomorrow, tossing mega riffs over their shoulders like so much confetti. Their metal aggro has often served to cloak Terrorvision's yen for brilliant, cutting lyrics, but here, sharp as their hooks are, their songwriting is keener -- full of a broad, Swiftian satire that rips into targets both soft and otherwise: from '70s obsessives (Discotheque Wreck) to squatter hippies (Oblivion) to notions of progress (Stop the Bus), among others. Musically, Friends is fun with the lid off as the band moves from whisper-quiet intros to full-tilt mayhem at the drop of a hat. Stab in the Back starts off sounding like the Happy Mondays or Jamiroquai before exploding with slashing guitars. And the hit single Alice What's the Matter alternates broody suspense and breakneck riffage to great effect. Terrorvision's smash-and-bludgeon aesthetic will no doubt endear them to metalheads even as their sad-dark visions of post-adolescent anomie find them an audience among those who prefer their rock not so dumb. How to Make Friends and Influence People, indeed. ~ Leslie Mathew, All Music Guide

このアルバム知ってる人がどれくらいいるの...

このアルバム知ってる人がどれくらいいるのか分からないけど、 はっきり言ってキャッチ―なロックが好きな人には最高ですよ。 どことなく、英国風のギターサウンドが残っているポップロック だけど、結構激しい曲とかもあるから、BON JOVI好きとかでも いけると思います

Terrorvision

Alongside New Model Army and a fertile bhangra scene, Terrorvision were the Yorkshire city of Bradford's chief musical export. And, after capturing a U.K. number one single in 1999, there was every reason for them to be a source of local pride. After abandoning the name Spoilt Bratz in 1991, Terrorvision (named after a cult B-movie) formed around vocalist Tony Wright, guitarist Mark Yates, bass pl
