    Music to autoerotically asphyxiate yourself by.

    The very best album from the very best band currently walking the planet earth. Sound assassination at it's peak.

    An interest-piquing statement by an innovative and technically proficient band. They certainly have their own style and don't really seem to care if you like it or not. A little over-hyped, but still an enjoyable record.

  1. Too mischievous for Led Zeppelin's Valhalla and too self-aware for Bal-Sagoth's Magic Kingdom, Wonderful Rainbow conjures retarded unicorns, copulating robots, and head-banging ogres in one technicolor beat.
  2. For an album that changes pace only for intensely noisy noodling, Wonderful Rainbow shows remarkable range.
  3. Wonderful Rainbow is a brilliant record and has upped the ante tremendously for Lightning Bolt. They managed to take every single aspect that made Ride the Skies such a great record and intensify it severely, all the while showcasing incredibly tight and complex musicianship – knowing when to hold in the reins and when to set them on fire.
