  1. 'O Katrina!' which kicks off like any lovesick Nuggets stomp, then drops the line "I can't believe what's on the TV screen." We're not hearing about a jilted girl anymore, but a jilted city. And before that can sink in, another wonderfully scuzzy guitar solo is on its way.
  2. It might take a lot of effort to sound this effortless, but Good Bad Not Evil is a goofy pleasure.
  3. Good Bad Not Evil is the record where naysayers, disinterested friends and acquaintances, and anyone else within earshot has to sit up, shut up, and listen.

    The album marks the first time Black Lips’ unconscious bar anthems have sounded completely, well, developed.

An consisted album, without the childless fooling around (it's fun to see that live but not on the album). The only problem is that it doesn't have the real killers like 'buried alive' and 'sea of blasphemy'. The black lips made a proper pop album and it's a sidestep from their previous material. The next album should be the classic Garage rock album of the new millennium. Full Review »

Most reviews have been a little too lukewarm for my blood. I don't know how you feel lukewarm about a band like this, you should either love them or hate them. One of the top 5 albums of the year.
