4 stars Homeboy is an EP and Concentration Face is a DVD of Hella live. This review is only about an EP, haven't seen DVD yet

4,2/5 Those hwo are not familiar with avant-garde music will say that this is not music as they always say about anything really experimental. But those who have already heard Hella before won't be too surprised with this album. However Homeboy really stands out from all other Hella's albums. If I would usually describe Hella's style as experimental math-rock, here it's more noise rock. They went further than usually. It's like you take everything original about Hella's music and multiple it by two. Much more complicated melodies, more instruments playing at the same time and no parts of songs are repeated. Compared to this, "Hold your horse is" seems a bit like pop rock. The sound is pretty much usual, guitar and drums dominated and a little taste of Nintendo sound in Madonna Aproaches R&B Blonde Wreckages. All in all, strong concept album, one of the best by Hella in my opinion.

Ratings for songs : 1. Gothspel For You Not Them - 3/5 2. Madonna Approaches R&B Blonde Wreckages - 5/5 3. BC But Not Before Christ - 4/5 4. If I Were In Hella I Would Eat Lick - 4/5
