BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB – Bold Third Longplayer ‘HOWL’ Came Out 15 Years Ago

23 August 2020

Band: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (San Francisco)
Active: Since 1998
Album: HOWL
LP’s title: A direct reference to Allen Ginsberg‘s poem Howl
Released: 22 August 2000 – 15 years ago

Keyline: “If you want it thoughtful and passionate but still alive and realistic,
then give Howl a chance, BRMC have grown up and grown interesting.
” – AllMusic

Pitchfork wrote: “There might be a tiny hint of desperation fueling much of Howl,
but ultimately the record is an oddly earnest experiment for BRMC, and once they
learn to drop the weird, obligatory signifiers, their new direction may actually prove
more fruitful than their last: Cramming together brash rock snottiness with meek
country hollers is hardly uncharted territory (not that it matters), but BRMC’s
particular mash-up still makes for a strangely intriguing party.”
Score: 7/10.
