Drive Like Jehu songs Product Information
Drive Like Jehu album for sale by Drive Like Jehu was released Aug 30, 2005 on the Headhunter label. Pitchfork was a fine enough band, but whatever happened between those days and the launch of Drive Like Jehu made the newer group a quantum leap forward, as this gripping album demonstrates. Starting with the deceptively calm then ripping "Caress," Drive Like Jehu lives up to the Biblical reference of the group's name by feeling like a heaven-sent storm taking everything along with it at 200 mph. The Rick Froberg/John Reis guitar team sound like they've been dipped in battery acid, wired to a power station, and let absolutely loose, screaming, nervous riffs piled on top of each other and taking off for Mars.

||A revolutionary, groundbreaking record|
Drive Like Jehu's debut album has to be considered one of the great rock records of all time. At the time of its release, it sounded nothing like anything that came before it (except perhaps Pitchfork, which featured Drive Like Jehu members anyway), and even now, 10 years after its release, it sounds as urgent and vital as ever. You can't really pigeonhole Jehu's sound within the rock genre; it's explosively jagged and intricate, yet the melodies are insidiously catchy. Check out the unbridled intensity of "Spikes To You" and "Caress", the brilliantly complex "O Pencil Sharp", and the relentlessly pounding "Atom Jack" for album highlights. This one gets my highest recommendation.
