Association Area - _Loathsome Deco_
(Lunasound, 2001)
by: Paul Schwarz (9 out of 10)
One of noisecore's most subtle works, _Loathsome Deco_ sounds so relaxed and comfortable with itself that you feel it could just be one big long jam session. The truth is quite the contrary; _LD_ is among the most meticulously constructed of albums. Organic and earthy in sound, _LD_ nonetheless packs a fair bite and benefits much from retaining a wholly insane feel from its start to its finish. When you hear the quote just before "One of Six Uncles" properly kicks in, you might be in agreement with its words -- " still hasn't gotten weird enough for me." -- but by the time all of _LD_'s 35 minutes 24 seconds has been absorbed by your cranium, I doubt your lust for the weird will have failed to be satisfied. However, if _LD_ intrigues you as it did me, then I expect you'll soon be hungry again, and be ready for another spin. The most concertedly developmental "noisecore" release of the year so far and one of the few records of recent time that not only sounds different, but different from the different.
