Very simplistic in melody and progression, each track on 200 Million Thousand is a tube-driven, distorted mess, complete with classic Brit-punk vocals. Twangy and overdriven guitars are matched with screams and pissed-off vocals full of attitude, creating a highly energetic punch, reminiscent of a Black Lips live performance.
It means that the album’s instantly accessible and familiar to anyone who’s ever smoked a cigarette, flipped the bird to The Man or nailed the pastor’s daughter in the churchyard; but is subject to the law of diminishing returns which kicks in every time the fuck-you teen persona is reincarnated.

I love the black lips and thought that good bad etc. was a great album. This isn't the same thing as that. It's a different album altogether, but good in it's own right. "Elijah" is great, the "drop i hold" is hard as shit and the secret track at the end is also very good. Take my advice, give this album a go.… Expand
