Royal Trux - Accelerator LP
NEW. DRAG CITY RECORDS. REISSUED!!! As we steer ourselves away post-haste from the (semi-arbitrary watershed) year 2000 (or 2001, if youre that kind), many among us are still unsure of which stance to prefer: that of the forward-looking visionary elite or the historically-informed cult of the sentimentalist. Confusing times, but timely times for the reissue of ROYAL TRUXs 1998 masterpiece (according to many, though we are inclined to believe that all of their releases were equally masterful), Accelerator. This album split the difference and intersected both angles to create an ass-kicking music machine that still confronts today with its dialed-out production values rendering ten tunes of glittering platinum hooks and colored by numbers with hooligan-outfitted choruses.
