4 stars Live 2002: The Franco-Italian Tour is the debut album by New York City-based psychedelic/noise-rock trio the Psychic Paramount, recorded, as its title might suggest, during a 2002 tour of Europe. Much of the material on this release was later reworked for the band's debut album Gamelan into the Mink Supernatural, but if possible it's even more energetic live, making this far from a pointless cash-in. Like their debut, it's harsh and distorted throughout, though it's actually slightly less noisy than the studio album. The melodic elements and complexity present on the studio releases are still present here, but it's still noisier than nearly everything else not classified as "noise-rock", and not for the faint of heart in the slightest. And don't turn your volume up too high; you'll blow out your speakers/headphones and end up with tinnitus. If you like their full-lengths, you'll probably like this, and if you don't like this, you probably won't like their full-lengths.
