    It's not pretty music by any means, but it's got a killer lowlife swagger.

    The Australian trio feedtime's 1980s recordings, which are collected on The Abberant Years box set, prove them to be traditionalists of the best sort.
  3. Apr 4, 2012
    Listen to all of The Aberrant Years, and you'll probably get too caught up in feedtime's bracing songs to think much about bands that came after them.

    Individually and together, these records are as potent, squalling, and beautiful as when they were issued.
  5. Apr 4, 2012
    Sub Pop commendably delivers an anthology from a prime influence on their hometown heroes Mudhoney, and Feedtime's return to the shelves proves timely.
  6. Jul 26, 2012
    It's unclear whether the stunningly simple sound of 1985's feedtime was forged by artistic primitivism or limitations in musicianship, but its monotonic songs ride feeling rather than melody, and when it's good, like "Fastbuck" springing outlaw quatrain, "I got a Pontiac, gasoline, grab the cash, split the scene," it's paralyzing.
