    Stuff this simple can turn into art that's fantastic or a fantastic disaster. Coachwhips walk the line masterfully. [Feb 2005, p.91]

    For the most part still playing it breakneck and fuzz-covered, their trademark garage-scuzz-meets-hardcore blitzkreig is if anything more rough-riffed and faster. [Mar 2005, p.101]
  3. Frontman John Dwyer still sounds like he's singing through a kazoo, the drummer is still obviously banging away on cardboard boxes and keyboardist Val-Tronic plays like all her fingers are broken. [5 Mar 2005, p.50]
  4. A blur of primal guitar stomp wrapped in a menacing swirl of vintage organs and distorted vocals.
  5. The band's brand of anti-melody, two-chord thrash... is starting to feel punishingly stale. [28 Jan 2005, p.84]
  6. 20
    Doesn't offer much in the way of anything appealing. [#67, p.90]

    Seven's about right for the coachwhips. They do the raw garage rock better than anyone I know, and it's a blast listening to an album this full of intensity and grit. But on the flip side, their songs sound pretty similar. They throw blues into the mix, which I usually don't like, but they pull it off a lot better than other bands I know who do this, and the rhythm section will pulverize you. So, a 9 or 10 for rocking me like no other, but if you want amazing and diverse song writing, I can see why some of the reviewers are pissed. Expand
