Most would shy from knowing a record to contain two remakes, thinking it unoriginal, but S.R.C. make them sound so completely different that at first you might not even notice it. The heavy guitar riffs on the Cure's "Lovesong" give it a hard-rock, NIN-esqued edge, sounding nothing like the subtle original. And their take on Smith's "How Soon Is Now?" is quite different with its light orchestration and trumpet horn sneaking a peak here and there. It's not quite as good as the original but, like the rest of Sonic Jihad, is strangely addicting. And to choose a favorite as I always do, it would have to be "Casualty" with its dragging beat lines and lazy singing. I was really surprised at liking this. If you, like me, enjoy Garbage, Massive Attack, AND Nine Inch Nails, than I think you should check this out.
The jewel of this album though is the cover of The Cure's "Lovesong." Out of all the covers I've heard of any song, this far surpasses it. It is intense, bring industrial influences, along with hard rock, jazz and even some world influences. It is an amazing cover. Hard as I try, I can't stop listening to it.
While, in my opinion, the best two songs on the album are covers, this doesn't mean the rest aren't worth listening to. The band shows a great talent for composing music and bringing many different styles together seamlessly. This band also has accomplished something else that I feel they really need to be congratulated for, their songs don't all sound the same, which happens with many bands. Each song as a new, distinct sound and flavor which leaves me only wanting more.
While this type of music isn't for everyone, if you are a fan of female-led rock, industrial, trip hop, and even jazz and blues, you may just fall in love with this band. I am excited for Snake River Conspiracy's next album.
What can I say about Tobey Torres? Even if she wasn't sexy, you would want to know her, because of the emotion she puts into the lyrics. The anger seems to be like that one would find in a much less attractive women(Wonder if she was an ugly duckling growing up?)This band has so much going for it, every song is actually good(2 are covers of cource), how often do you say that about a non-greatest hits cd? It's a shame MTV or most Alt-rock stations did not put them, listen to the samples if you haven't already here, and you will find after you buy the cd, it is better than I have described!
Late pre-Splinter Sneaker Pimps; Fragile era Nine Inch Nails; Orgy without the anti-rhymes and Korn influence; Garbage; Republica; Curve; Whale; and *maybe* The Beatles and Massive Attack. Add to this an additional heavy dose of very edgy industrial experimental sound, and an occasional mockery of American idealism. Thus, the title of their debut album is quite fitting.
They've covered 3 fine songs so far: The Beatles' "She Said, She Said" (on the "Vulcan" Single); a lushly dark semi-gothic industrial take on The Cure's "Lovesong"; and The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now".
The excellent female voice is that of Tobey Torres. Sometimes it's almost a shame the music is so obscuring. I said *almost*. It's funny how another review took a pot shot at "Casualty's" lack of industrial sound. This is one my favorites on the album. It's reminiscent of Kelli Dayton Ali's later b-sides and remixes with the Sneaker Pimps. SRC's whole album has great film-like scope, but that track is by far the most cinematic.
After seeing the super-cool "Vulcan" video and listening to the single, I assumed this SRC release would be good. Not only did it exceed my expectations, but it's in immaculate HDCD. This is one hell of a Sonic Jihad. Cleanse the universe, baby. . .oh yeah.
P.S. I dislike Kittie and Iron Maiden, and I'm not a big Kid Rock fan.
