PROG REVIEWER
4 stars You may think that you don't like the Residents now, but wait until you hear this. OK that's a bit sarcastic.

I found it browsing at a local independent record store. I had two video and two CD titles in my collection and always found them interesting but not to the point of trying much except on the rare occasion, the last one being Have A Bad Day (1996). Animal Lover rekindled my interest in the band.

There's still the demented and trademark sound of this outfit, but it seems they have aged well like a fine (rancid/vinegar?) wine. The first four tracks are standard Resident's weirdness, but there's those prog elements cropping up. When I first heard the instrumental, Mr. Bee's Bumble, I realized these guys had truly progressed in their music. Inner Space is a creepy sad song about a father dying. Molly Harvey has really added a soft edge to the band with her vocals. The instrumental Dreaming Of An Anthill (Teaming) is sublimely spooky. Let's face it, the whole album is creepy. It may be best you sample it before you buy.

It's a really cool concept album and they did a good job of making the CD package. You get lyrics mixed with written stories from various animal's viewpoints. The CD is a hardback kind of package. If you fall for the music on the main CD, the supplemental disc is also a must have, variations and explorations with the stuff on the main disc.

Not a band for everybody, but I would say this album is the best place to start if you want to explore the prog weirdness that is the Residents.. PLEASE SOMEBODY! BURN MY BONES!

3 stars The Resident's 'Animal Lover' is supposed to be music that represents the sound of nature copulating; the 'rhythm tracks are based entirely on animal noise mating patterns generated primarily by cicadas and frogs. Also the actual sounds of mating whales and humans were used for longer tonal passages,' according to Residents website. It opens innocently enough with On The Way (to Oklahoma), a repeated infectious melody locks into the brain easily.

Olive and Gray has some melancholy violins and slow rhythmic synths, but things begin to take off a bit with What Have My Chickens Done Now? This one has character performances such as an old lady 'They accused my daughter and Scratched her on the face and hand They bite their tongues and bear their teeth, Then they scratch me til I bleed' The girl replies and her 5 sisters with sweet sung dialogue such as 'Around her neck they tied a noose, And they killed her family too.' So now we know her chickens are to blame for her murder 'Only her chickens know now'.

Two Lips has a nice little rhythm, and some sinister vocals along with high pitched children's voices. In this scenario of purchasing tulips it is 'buy or die!' Mr. Bee's Bumble is a cool instrumental I really like with crazy frenetic synthesizers over a punctuated percussion section.

Inner Space has a nice female vocal, Molly Harvey, a Resident regular since 'Demons Dance Alone', with a sea shanty style and sparkling synths make this a personal favourite. Dead Men is next and just goes on with a simple melody about the demise of the dead. My Window is a sombre bleak sound with low keyboards and ethereal nuances. It has a Japanese vibe in the instrumentation, and the Louisiana twang returns in the vocals, a component of just about every Residents album since their inception.

Ingrid's Oily Tongue is another instrumental with synth melodies, ominous sounds and ascending rhythms. The trumpets augment the soundscape considerably. Mother No More is a poignant piece that is rather mournful. Then another instrumental of beauty with Dreaming of an Anthill (Teeming). Elmer's Song opens with a capella harmonies and then a minimalist musical background with a nursery rhyme vocal.

Molly Harvey has a field day acting like a Japanese lady on The Monkey Man and the backdrop of Oriental instruments is perfect. The atmosphere is very bleak, then becomes less so on The Whispering Boys with its commercial melody. Burn My Bones ends this on a note of wilful death, very scary vocoder voice tweaked on a low deep setting and then an extended coda of ominous sounds of synths and high pitched vocal intonations.

Another Residents album that defies description but sits somewhere between clever and ridiculous. Only by listening can you make your own mind up. I did not find this to be one of the highlights in the Residents illustrious career but many will try to prove me wrong. 3 stars for the few good songs.

4 stars The never normal Residents have a 'Cyberman' singing on the opener 'On the Way to Oklahoma', where (the story goes) - a guy goes mad, thinking he's a tiger and kills a dog. A good return to form if you ask me. Tuneful, scary and one of the darkest albums they've released. A lot of folk seem ... (read more)
