I'd suggest seeking them out before coming anywhere near this piece of garbage. I thought the cover of this book was interesting, and then I saw that it was about a woman who is not a teen or twenty-something with an eating disorder and that made me even more curious about it.
Well, the short review of this book is that it sucks. I was written about an actual woman and in first person, but it wasn't written by her, but some doctors. They may be able to write in scholarly journals or case studies, but they don't have a flair for narrative.
There were many issues that I could I thought the cover of this book was interesting, and then I saw that it was about a woman who is not a teen or twenty-something with an eating disorder and that made me even more curious about it. There were many issues that I could pick on, but the two that bothered me most were the word choice and editing errors. The words that the protagonist used were just not realistic.
It read as though the doctors were speaking through her, which was irritating. And when the characters talked to each other, it didn't flow the way dialogue tends to do. The editing errors bother me when I see more than two in a published work. There were several in this one, mostly left out words or typos. There are much better works out there to read that concern this topic. I wouldn't waste my time with this one or another from this author.
Nov 05, -t r rated it it was ok. This book is told from the POV of an anorexic bulimic, but was written by two doctors. The disclaimer at the beginning of the book states that it's taken from a true life story of one of their patients.
Whether deliberately or by choice, the stunted writing, the repetition of concepts and sometimes the exact same language Jess often repeats herself to us, the readers. It gets old qui This book is told from the POV of an anorexic bulimic, but was written by two doctors. It gets old quickly.
Also, the almost superheroic status of Jess' husband is thrown up against the fact that he doesn't ask or get angry or upset about her eating disorder until very close to the end of the book. Overall, however, this is a great recording that for the most part, shows them at their best. It is a strong psychedelic album, but pushes boundaries to the point that you might think twice about that label. Yes it is heavy into alternative sounds at times, but again, they are incorporating their sound into new areas.
The album has a lot of versatility throughout though, and it makes it hard for the band to wear out their welcome, even in a long album like this one. The sound is dark and heavy and during the chorus, you can also hear mellotron in there.
After two verses, there is that trademark fuzz guitar solo that we know and love from Motorpsycho already. The vocals are then processed a bit to give that psychedelic sound as it enters a different theme.
Excellent guitar solos split the verses up before it goes into a longer instrumental break which shows off their progressive yet stoner edge. Things calm down at around the mark and become more mysterious sounding and vocals return on yet a 3rd theme. It soon intensifies and the theme is repeated at a higher volume with more guitar support and a progressive riff is built upon until the end.
This track builds a bit with more of a progressive sound with a slight folk feel. Its hard to believe all of this music, which is somewhat sympohonic is made by 3 guys, but there you have it. There is some brass in there which definitely isn't hidden, more keyboards are also prevalent in this track. The track has a more early King Crimson vibe to it, but of course without really copying anything, that comparison is just there to give you an idea.
Before the 5 minute mark, there is a heavier sound as the theme changes and this section becomes a lot more complex and chaotic, still keeping that early KC vibe, and doing it quite well I might add.
Brass and guitar fight and argue together as the mellotron anchors it all together. Before 7 minutes, everything evens out to a slower tempo as the guitar improvises and churns up a bit more intensity in a soaring solo. After 8 minutes, it all calms down again returning to the soft feel at the beginning with harmonized vocals again.
A minute later, you think the track is over, but it bursts into quite a cinematic ending with everything playing around the theme. After a quick build, the guitar, aided by some keyboards, build upon a theme while drums work to build intensity.
After a while, this resolves and then builds upon another theme, this one more in the line of space rock. Once things reach a plateau, the guitar improvises around the theme again.
The bass is definitely more noticeable in this track also. Things calm again and everything works around a new theme. Vocals don't come in until around The lyrics are more important on this track and the verses are quite long, are more progressive and have much more depth. Just before the 10 minute mark, a loud and psychedelic guitar solo and dissonant drone breaks loose. Heaviness ensues and it sounds excellent! The solo guitar wails against the wall of noise surrounding it like a banshee trying to break loose of it's chains.
Suddenly, after the 13 minute mark, things level out as vocals start again backed up by the band and keyboards, then that suddenly drops off to almost ambience as things get pianissimo for a minute. There is then a sudden outburst as a new section is quickly introduced and the guitar gets another grand solo.
At 17 minutes, everything culminates to the original theme backed with the band and more mellotron. Things eventually return to calmness but intensity quickly builds and the band gets one more last finale before the end as everything resolves around a major chord and a bright ending.
This is really a good album by Motorpsycho, and they still retain their progressive edge while they mix in that more stoner feel from their earlier days, but it still sounds amazing. I was never one to complain about the length of Motorpsycho's albums when they are at their best, like the album 'Behind the Sun' because I can listen to that style of music all day.
But this album is definitely too short and I feel it might have been a bit rushed. I still feel it is one of the best albums so far this year, just not quite as good as it could have been. The band has raised the bar so much in the past, it's hard not to rate their albums against their best, which is usually what happens when reviewing a band like this. Anyway, it is definitely worth your while to hear this album. Great music, excellent album, but not quite their best. So, this is far from progressive rock, at least on this, their 4th album, as it is straight out alternative country rock.
As far as that style goes, they do a pretty believable job of it, even for being from Norway. They play a lot of covers and originals. The album doesn't really sound much like a soundtrack as it does a bunch of country songs with an alternative flair. The 'theme' is an instrumental bluegrass song, but the others are all alt-country. They have a slightly garage sound to their style of alt-country, so it doesn't have that 'perfect' sound that popular country has, thank goodness.
I can at least give this a 3 star rating since it is a lot of fun and a decent enough album for the style of music it is. They released 2 reissues through the year, one in , where they added 4 more tracks, and then again in , where they added even another 6 bonus tracks to that, so if you find this latest reissue, you get a total of 21 tracks and that's not too bad for the price.

She uses the last bullet in her gun to kill herself leaving the bird behind. The story is about the little girl named Leah. According to Kaufman, Manson phoned him five days a week, even though he was allowed only three phone calls per day.
Manson was "very anxious for his music to be heard". These 2 songs appeared on a privately pressed 45 rpm single and credited to "Silverhawk". When Phil Kaufman was mastering the Lie LP, he had to take these 2 tracks from a copy of the 45, as the master tapes were already lost. It was distributed on the West Coast, by Trademark of Quality, the bootlegging group who released the first notable bootleg album, Great White Wonder , a collection of pirated Bob Dylan tapes.
Each of the original 2, copies came with a poster that was put out by "A Joint Venture" and that bore signatures of many prisoners and inmates, all supporting Manson and the Family. Only sold. During the Ron Reagan Jr. My music is not on tape. Manson was not given co-writing credit. The result is a truly arresting volume that captures the spirit of Moore's poem while redefining the concept of a picture book for adults.
