Take It From The Man (Explicit)
Released: Jan 1996
Label: 'a' Records
This, their second proper LP, is the one that put the Brian Jonestown Massacre on the indie rock map. It would be easy to discount them as just a retro group if they didn't write such brilliant pop songs. Guitar-driven rave-ups fit nicely beside lysergic tunes about love and hate; you'll wonder just when in the hell Love and the Small Faces made an album together and why you never knew about it. There are too many highlights to name, but check out "Who?" and the 11-minute "Straight Up and Down".
