    This is what i wanted from the black lips. 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. Expand

    The best band to come out of Atlanta . . . um, ever. 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.

  1. Good Bad Not Evil isn't a major leap forward for the Black Lips, but it shows their sound is slowly but surely evolving, and they still rock with a nasty enthusiasm that's bold and compelling; this is quality stuff for your next black light party.
  2. Good Bad, Not Evil delivers 13 testosterone-crazed grooves which mercifully give finicky revivalism the swerve, in favour of fuzz-frazzled sonics and lots of fun.
  3. The best songs on this album, including 'Vini Vidi Vici,' subvert the band's bravado without erasing it altogether.
