3 stars Yerself is Steam is the debut studio album by American rock act Mercury Rev. I only know the band from their post David Baker period so listening to this debut album is a rather different experience.

The music is experimental rock with lots of psychadelic tendencies. Thereīs even a goth rock influence in the song Blue and Black. Many of the songs are repetitive in nature but thereīs always some strange sounds to make the music interesting. The 12:15 minute long Very Sleepy Rivers which ends the album is a great example of the psychadelic rock music on display here or the great opener Chasing a Bee with itīs strange interrupting sound effects.

The musicianship is good and tight and the production is allright even though itīs not excellent. A bit more bottom would have made it more enjoyable. David Baker isnīt a distinct vocalist but he certainly got something charming that saves his performance from being mediocre.

Yerself is Steam is not an album I listen to very often but itīs the kind of album Iīm happy to have listened to because there are many inspiring experimental moments to enjoy. As a whole the album doesnīt satisfy my taste but Iīll acknowledge that itīs interesting and will rate it 3 stars. Recommended to fans of alternative, experimental and psychadelic rock music.

3 stars David Baker era on lead vocals so Jonathan Donahue kind of taking a back seat and helping The Flaming lips at the same time. A different album but not at all bad. Psychedelic, frenzied and manic experimental rock sums up the album as a whole. But it is a good debut from this Buffalo band. David Baker either got fired or disappeared after this release and his fate is not known to this reviewer but his voice was very distinct and different to Donahue's. Overall highlights for this album would be the dark and scary ' Blue and Black', not for the fainthearted as they stretch all notes to the max. ' Chasing A bee' is excellent as is the experimental and cleverly titled ' Very Sleepy Rivers'. IMO this album is better than the highly acclaimed Boces ( Not sure what all the fuss is about there) and it makes for pleasant listening. Avoid trying to nod off to sleep though with this album because it has too many eery and weird hooks that will prevent any rest recovery with Morpheus. Three stars as it is a good start for a solid outfit.

3 stars Mercury Rev's debut is an early nineties psych album. It's very much of its time but in a good way. In the mid-90's I found a cassette of this left in an old house, took it home and gave it some listens. It might be incomprehensible at first and leave the listener slightly winded with it's cac ...
