Locust Abortion Technician is the third full-length studio album by American rock band Butthole Surfers, released in March 1987. The album was originally released on both vinyl and CD on Touch and Go, and was remastered on CD on the band's label, Latino Buggerveil, in 1999.Wikipedia
As a former locust abortion technician myself, I can confirm that this record truly represents what an under appreciated role we have society. It really gives us a voice.
I gave this a cursory listen and was about to mark it “1” and move on but the last few songs on the LP grabbed me. I liked the Asian sounding guitar work that kicks off Kuntz. Also, the last song (22 Going On 23) is powerful. It sounds like a radio show where a very hurt and / or deranged woman calls in and the host has nothing useful to say to her. It’s pure magic how the guitar playing captures the mood of the talk show dialogue. These two tunes motivated me to listen again and pay more attention and I'm glad I did. The album starts w Sweat Loaf. I quite like it but can’t for the life of me figure out why. The song transitions back and forth from quiet and almost whisper like to aggressive and heavy. Nirvana later did this very effectively on Heart Shaped Box. The lyrics on Sweat are measured. This the case on most songs on this LP. No excess verbiage, no references to Greek Philosophers or obscure contributors to the Bible. Nothing here is even one inch pompous and, if I remember correctly, being pompous was quite fashionable in 1987. In Graveyard, I like the distorted voice. It’s reminiscent of Black Sabbath’s Iron Man but I couldn't for the life of me (pardon the pun) understand the lyrics without my friendly internet connection. It’s a dark and creepy song which is up my alley. Another angst filled song I also like is Human Cannonball (although Human Cannibal seems to be the better name???) By the time we get to U.S.S.A. and The O-Man the LP has disintegrated to the stage that all that remains is noise. The lyrics to U.S.S.A. are by any definition terse. The words are: U.S.S.A, U.S.A, U.S.S.R, U.S.S.A. No Pulitzer Prize coming anytime soon but I doubt they'd want one. The interesting part about using such terse lyrics is the listener can decide what the song's about. The words do evoke thought and I can think they have a meaning related to the Bay of Pigs while another person can think they relate to the different kinds of poverty and crime in the two then super powers. The beauty of simple lyrics is that the customer is always right. This is also the second album sent to us in the last week where barnyard sounds figure prominently. Hey if it’s good enough for Sgt Pepper . . . I told a friend about the LP tonight and as I was doing so I couldn’t help but worry that the fact I like this LP so much might cost me a friend. lol.
the first comment on youtube is this "My wife and kids not only hated it, they think I may have lost my mind. How do I tell them that this album touched my consciousness like a greasy finger dipped into a puddle - the oily rainbow slick instantly spreading accross the entire surface of my mind - altering, imbuing, opening. Perspective is the greatest gift we ever got." fair enough - it wasn't quite a greasy finger up the bum like this guy had but i did enjoy it.
A thundering volley of whingeing fuck knuckles.
That was a wild ride. A good time, but not one that I think I'll go on very often if ever again. Favorite Track(s): "Sweat Loaf" and "Graveyard" (the second one)
Worst one yet! My horizons are expanding but I don't want them to.
Truly appalling. I own 1001 albums that are better than this and not on the list.
Avant garde noise rock at its finest. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea and I totally get that.
Really weird and punk. Gave it a few rotations and loved it
Strong 4. Dark and hard as nails. Not a huge huge fan of the pure noisy tracks but the feeling is understood. Standout Tracks: Pittsburgh to Lebanon, Hay, Kuntz, Graveyard (2), 22 Going On 23
I gotta say fellas, this is some of the most fucked up shit. It has a vibe. And I do enjoy noise 4/5
Throw genre out the door because it has no place on this record. Perhaps we could call it noise punk; it certainly fits the punk ethos. This album conjures feelings of disconnection and seems to be a gross parody of music and society. However, for whatever reason, it really appeals to me and I throughly enjoyed this album.
Nightmare Fuel. Recommended for fans of Sonic Youth, Ween’s pre-Chocolate and Cheese albums, LSD
This album is an experimental blend of punk rock, heavy metal, and psychedelic music. The music is creative as the band recorded everything themselves, but it's also supported by great guitar playing. The entire album was a trip, whether that be nightmarish or awesome, is up to the listener to decide. For sure an interesting album nonetheless.
Clearly a really influential album for some big grunge artists of the 90s, I love the almost broken guitar sounds, huge fuzz and mad reverse sections and messed up vocals. Can't say it will be an album I will go back to time and time again but from an influence, production and pure madness point of view this deserves recognition. Gets a boxbat special 3.5 from me
Some of these songs made me want to jam a screwdriver into my ears to make it stop. Some were okay.
Butthole Surfers. What a name. I don't like this, but I like it more than that Scott Walker album, it's more interesting. It's loud, dark, and aggressive, but there are a few bright spots. For the '80s, it's a little impressive. These guys clearly aimed to shock and offend. Sorry boys, I was just a little bored. Also, big shout out to Alden for discovering that Albino Andrew was in this band. Favorite tracks: Kuntz, 22 Going on 23 Album art: We love clowns, don't we folks? These clowns are having the time of their lives training a pup. I'd love it if this happy picture tricked some unsuspecting rubes into buying this. 2/5
The Sweat Leaf riff is a good start if you wanna get college radio play. The noise rock is a bit hit & miss. I liked “the O-Men”. “Hay” not so much. It seems to me that their only contribution to the Phloen Phromdaen song was turning it into toilet humour. I would give this a higher mark, if not for “22 going on 23.” While I think it’s at times unfair to look at lyrics through a 2020 lens, building a song around (and mocking) a woman’s recounting to a radio host of how her rape gives her nightmares was surely over the top even way back in 1987. It’s too bad because the song itself is well-realized, so dark and heavy, and since so many US radio talk shows are also dark and heavy, there should have been no shortage of other material (though it might not shock and disgust to the same extent).
Well it took about 10 seconds of each song for me to physically become ill. That’s not a good sign.
this is fucking amazing! Noisy and wild. I listened to another album right away
Love the album. Reminds me of highschool.
this i should like and do a lot
I love this album name so much
Fun, experimental punk album with a few great songs
Punk as all hell
SATAN SATAN SATAN Great album
Good old punk. Some heavy lyrics...breaking some taboos. Their messages still apply to our society today.
Fast ein Meisterwerk. Neben der Napalm Death-Scheibe ist diese Platte bislang die ungewöhnlichste in dieser Liste. Und damit eine wohltuende Abwechslung.
this is some real ass music. so many great features of this album including the cover and name. somehow nostalgic and just really great 😏
Wow I enjoyed this way more than I thought. I’m not sure why. It just hit right.
Hah hah, gloriously weird, very noisy, exactly my type of thing. Fave track - "Graveyard" maybe, although I did enjoy the faux metal glossolalia of "The O-Men" a lot
I would say it’s a 3.5 for me, I enjoyed my listen but I don’t see myself coming back to the album as a whole, maybe some of the specific tracks like “Kuntz” and “22 going on 23.” But I’m giving a four just because of how interesting an experience the whole album is
I think I love it. Tough call between this and electriclarryland, at least 7/10.
Classic album that got me into these guys.
Sounds exactly like something you'd expect from a band called Butthole Surfers
The first metal album I have ever listened to, can't say I absolutely loved it, but it was pretty damn cool.
My first Butthole Surfers experience. It's loud and I liked it. I've always heard of the band but never heard the music. I really loved the first track and how it sounds oh so similar to Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath...let me see, what was that song called. Oh yeah, Sweet Loaf. I liked this band right from the start! Ok, it took 1+ minutes, because of that slow load into the guitar riff. Ok, some of the songs have lyrics - I guess. I think they are saying something in "The O-Men" but It could just be nonsense... it doesn't matter. Their noise is interesting. Kuntz is a song sung in Thai... where'd that come from! I'm sure they picked the word because it sounds like cunt! Songs like Graveyard, pound hard and make me turn it up a bit more... I turned it up to 11 on a 10 scale :) There are some really interesting sounds in the song "Hay". Calling it a "song" is a stretch. It is more of an experience in sound than a song. Human Cannonball is probably the most "radio-worthy" song. It seemed like a complete song that I would easily expect to hear on College Radio back in 1987. It has lyrics you can understand too! Halfway through U.S.S.A. I smiled. That guitar riff, that nonsense babble just got me. The into of "22 going on 23" is baffling. She sounds more like 82 going on 83... Great guitar riffs throughout this one. Standout tracks: Sweet Loaf Human Cannonball.
peak BH, very evocative. and if you see your mom this week...
It’s an EP, really, but still completely fucking awesome.
You know what? it's a vibe.
Loved it. I had never listened to their music before. I kind of feel bad that I missed it when I was younger.
I love the first song, like the rest a lot.
weirder than I thought - liked bits of it, but some was a bit too experimental to be enjoyable. Like what they're aiming for here though so I'll round this 3.5 up to a 4. Tbh feels like a mid-late 90's album more than late 80's
Sweet, sweet, butthole music.
Listened to this while extremely sleep deprived, this was a perfect fit. fuck knows if I'd like it when my brain's working tho.
One of the best albums from one of the bands most influential on 90s alternative rock. Although not currently in the lowest rated albums in this project, I've seen it down there before, and it's probably in the top 10% of albums on here.
A band I knew the name of but not any music. Clearly shock-artists, they were ahead of the times of the early 90s, but I can see how they were influential to MTV-vibes and Grunge feels. Musically I am into noise/experimental/punk energy so overall I enjoyed it a bunch. Sounds like live would be an absolute spectacle... but not sure I would want to be there. Not sure what 22 going on 23 is supposed to say, but feels kinda gross. Musically I like it, but the shock humor is kind of stupid to me, it would be more hilarious if the music was high-brow taking itself seriously and then just keep the name... Butthole Surfers.
I thought I was going to hate this more than I did. I wasn't starting with much preconception, other than knowing their name, but I did end up liking the sharp edge on the music which sounds like a precursor to a lot of stuff I like now (like Ty Segall, for example and any number of contemporary west coast "grunge" bands). There were moments that I hated, but the vast majority I was impressed with, especially for it being as early as 1987.
goofy corny nonsense i love it
I started listening to them with independent worm saloon and never explored the back catalogue. This was a great surprise.
Haha, daar was ik wel even aan toe.
I had not listened to the Butthole Surfers until now and I'm pleasently surprised with this pick. It's incredibly noisy, chunky, and melodic. If I had known this is what they made I would have listened to them a long time ago.
I'd pick up a $8 used. Funny, twisted, interesting album. Lots of not fully baked ideas here. This is closer to what I'd consider exciting or interesting when a album comes up on this service. I've heard it before, but almost as background music. Like sweet loaf, pittsburgh to lebanon, just really cool guitar tones, sludge, solos, etc.
I don’t hate it and I don’t do enough drugs to love it. One of the most surprising albums to grow on me. Second listen and something clicked, it feels like the fringe of society vocalized. Upsetting, psychotic, anxiety inducing and angry. It’s a parody of music and society. Fuck it.
Really fantastic, like Mr. Bungle with less porn and more LSD.
Here's a record that I feel like I should have listened to a long time ago. This is right up my alley; heavy, weird, funny, trippy. I love how it leans into how badly recorded it is, and goes heavy into the weirdness. Lots of effects and strange production techniques on what is a pretty punk album, which makes it sound like nothing else. I love the fired take on Black Sabbath ('Sweet Loaf'), plus the backwards tape, effects, sound effects and found tape. It is pretty unsettling, but there are songs o n here that rock pretty hard, and few memorable riffs (if no tunes to speak of). I've listened to this three times through today, and really dig it. (I do like that it doesn't outstay its welcome. 30 minutes is about perfect timing for it to barge in, mess your head up, and then ride off into the sunset.). I really would liek to give this 3.5 stars, but I can't, so I'm going to lean towards 4, because this was a lot of fun, and I will buy a copy next time I see one at a reasonable price.
Seems like a spiritual predecessor to grunge in some ways. Slower, heavier music. Human Cannonball is one of my faves so far because it veers more into the punk sound. Clearly most people including me only know Butthole Surfers via songs like Pepper and Who Was In My Room Last Night? (which rule btw) but this is interesting to hear more of their music before those songs popped.
Uplifting but little cheesy
Everything about this album is a lot.
Good album. Not at all what I was expecting.
It was ok, a little noisy in some areas.
Scary album ;)
I kind of want to give this another go, as I fear I wasn't listening carefully enough...
I've heard a couple of their other songs but no idea what to expect here. The first song is called sweet loaf haha. And lol it even sounds like sweet leaf. 3/5 joke rock, noisy bullshit. Hard to give an actual score cause it's so dumb, but it's pretty short so 3/5.
Fun time for background music
didn't hate at all, maybe I was just in a good mood. 2.9
straddles that fine line between deliberately annoying and inspired genius. Leans more toward annoying though. +1 star for giving orbital that sample for the beginning of Satan.
Was planning on giving this a 2-star, until I heard 22 going on 23. This song alone is worth an extra star. What an amazing riff and the vocals of PTSD is horrifying. Truly a great song which saves this acid-trip of an experimental album by a band I thought I knew. Also a local Dallas-area band. The lead singer's dad was Mr. Peppermint!
I don't know. I used to like them a lot, still dig the overall tone and the boundless creativity behind it all. But I'm old now, some of this just hurts my head, and honestly if I paid money for an album of music based on some tracks I like and found out later it was half full of donkey noises and shit I would not be happy.
Interesting experimental punkish rock. Not familiar with this album - I liked their later music much more than this. 2.5 stars and rounding up for their audacity to call themselves The Butthole Surfers back in the 1980s.
More interesting than I expected
Interesting prog stuff
what the fuck did i listen to?
Original, but not right for me
You know when you watch a movie and think: "that was really good but I don't want to watch it again"? That's how I felt about this album. I respect the noise, the alternative directions, the pushing of boundaries, but it's not enough actual music to make me want to revisit
I enjoyed the songs that played with the contrast between sweet little tune and aggressive/manic sound.
2.8 - starts out strong and somewhat melodic, but devolves into a bad acid trip about halfway through. Just not really my cup of tea.
Locust Abortion Technician by Butthole Surfers comes at a period of fun, schlocky punk rock. MOD, SOD, and Scatterbrain helped make this genre popular. Not the bet representation of the sound, but I liked it nonetheless. 3.5/5.
mó barulhera bicho
What the fuck... Orgazoid vibes.
Well what an opening crazy energy. Crushing hellish messy aesthetic. Overall the album mixes fantastic freak outs with decent thrashy/sludgy music and then nauseating experiments and jokes.
This legitimately sounds like it comes from a seedy underground pre-internet version of the darkweb. They would fit right in playing a closing number at the Bang Bang Bar in Twin Peaks: The Return. I'd imagine the Venn diagram overlap of people who like gory B horror movies and LSD users is where you find most of your fans of The Butthole Surfers. This is only saved from being a 2 by "Human Cannonball" and its driving rhythm - which I genuinely like. Other than that it just sounds like some weird nerds that are into some dark shit getting revenge on the world by torturing people with their music.
Was thinking about it as a punk album that I didn't really love, but once I started thinking about it as a key precursor to grunge, it really opened up. Lots of fun. Strong 3
What a bizarre, disturbing and delightful listen. Never bothered to pay attention to this band in the early 90's but knowing this was released in '87, it's easy to identify that the sound and experimentation influenced much of the 'grunge' that followed it. The amount of one star ratings on this album earned it an extra from me but I doubt I will ever listen to it again.
This made me laugh out loud and cringe all within 40min. I can’t help but reel at the 1987 cohort albums (Appetite for Destruction, Darklands, Sign O’ the Times) close by this album in my chronological listen-thru. Truly alien.
Listened Before? N Oh Butthole Surfers. It's a blast from the past. A friend of mine in high school was a huge fan, so I'm conditioned to the experimental wierdness. I don't mind this record, but I wouldn't actively seek to listen to most of it. The major highlight for me is (surprise, surprise) Human Cannonball since it's the most cohesive thing on the record. Overall, not my favorite but I can tolerate it. Added to Library? N Songs added to Playlist: Human Cannonball
Dit is all over the place, maar ergens ook wel weer facinerend. Het werkte in ieder geval goed tijdens het onkruid trekken in de voortuin.
Clunky assault on my brain Murmurs of Tom waits influenced tunes, of key trumpets and scratchy electronics Don’t listen with a headache or operating heavy machinery
The album is better than the album title would imply!
Not my thing
interesting experimental punk/rock, kinda funny but for listening purposes probably gets boring after a while
Goede bak herrie, wel lekker
It's seminal for sure but is it any good. Some of it very much is. Some of it very much iant
Mostly seemed like just noise but every once in a while it was an enjoyable noise. Adding a star because I just don’t get it but they clearly know what they’re doing
Here we have around 30 minutes of the wackiest sounds you’re likely to hear. And I find it pretty compelling. I saw these dudes at the Burland Community Hall in Newtown in 1991. I wasn’t sure what to make of their set, but I loved the images being thrown onto the big screen behind the band. It was definitely part of the package. I loved Kuntz, partly because it reminded me of an American baseball card I have for a player by the name of Rusty Kuntz. Only in America. The production is great. Well worth a listen.
An absolutely batshit insane experience. Reminded me a bit of "The Pod" by Ween (Turns out this is actually one of Deaner's favorite bands, so that makes sense!). Noise rock has always been a fascinating genre to me, in a "should I seek medical attention for enjoying this?" kind of way. So yeah, pretty good. Strong 3/5.
It's been quite a listen for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I've seen the band live a few times because I have a friendgroup that sees the Butthole Surfers as genius. I really don't mind them, but the feeling of 'weird because weird' always keeps persisting.
It’s listenable but shows its age. It’s got a lot of fun guitar sections to it, but likely won’t be revisiting any time soon
this certainly isn't the butthole surfers I am familiar with
not so my type of music...
I guess it’s just not for me. I know it’s supposed to be not pleasant, but the only tracks i liked are Kuntz and 22 goin’ on 23
Messy, nonsense, some good, most rubbish
weird. cool cover and name though
Can see how this inspired future indie musicians but I’m not high enough to enjoy it yet.
Weird. Good for a single listen. 5/10
Kinda good at first but then falls flat
Some good hard rocking on this album. I particulary enjoyed Human Cannonball. I was going to give this 3 stars until I heard 22 going on 23 and dropped it a star. What an awful song.
I may have had more tolerance to listen to this when I was younger. Not my jam
Not for me
No melodies, so a tough listen for me. Nice Orbital sample at the beginning. However, the problem is with listening to albums just once means that they can't really grow on you. Not sure this one would, but anyway!
I'm sort of torn between giving this 1 and 2 stars. On the one hand, it's a lot less horrible than I expected. Still, there were a couple of songs I had to skip, but really not that many. I'll round up from 1.5 because I do recognize interesting ideas throughout the album and find the majority of it listenable. Which is more than I can say of some other albums on this list.
i dont hate music that sounds like nose, but this is not a good album, lacks of cohesion
A little crazy for me. Cool but felt like I was in a nightmare on acid for the most part
Weird ass noise rock for weird ass people.
Not my thing but I'm sure someone can appreciate this.
Definitely not my thing!
Meh. Most of these kinda suck, some are ok.
I get this is supposed to be a parody but man that was rough
Fucking terrible, only an extra star because it made me laugh a few times
Not what I was expecting. I quite enjoyed the first track and one of the others but I could have done without USSA, Hay, and 22 going on 23. Oh, and also the silent 30 seconds at the beginning of the first track. 2 stars
Hmmm. At first I thought this group was gonna sound like an early Bloodhound Gang, but then it seemed like they were trying to make the album Napalm Death were about to make that same year. They bottled it though, by including a couple of actual tunes and a bit of musicality. I listened to some of their later stuff and it's a LOT more accessible - a little like an early Bloodhound gang...
they're better musicians that their name would make you expect. they're exactly the lyrics you'd expect
favs - the o-man & 22 going on 23. some parts of this album are noisy in just a bad way and i’m not about it. grew on me a bit more by the end. 3.5/10
Chaotic punk Favorite Track: Human Cannonball Relisten: No
Weird but never quite makes it to good weird.
Solid “should be on this list.” But so very strange. There’s so much more that’s this weird and borderline offensive, but actually better (e.g. Fantomas)
There must be a reason that The O-Man only has 195k listens on an album that was released in 1987... Not a great album for me. Verging on one-star.
My house mate used to play this all the time while at Uni. It’s ok, but not something I’d put on by choice
I mean, it's a bad acid trip set to music. It is entertaining, granted, but the only time you would really listen to it is when you're in your first year at uni and you put it on to show how cool and unique you are when actually you're just a cunt and no one likes you. Best Tracks: Sweat Loaf; Pittsburgh to Lebanon; Human Cannonball
A little too Lofi. Saw some potential
Okay, so I only knew the intro from an Orbital record. Happy to know where it came from. It sadly never tops Sweet Loaf. It seems to delight in being awkward and difficult, but rather than Pere Ubu brilliance, it's more just... Awkward and difficult. Without reward. And some naff edgelord crap thrown in for good measure. There are occasional glimpses of it going somewhere, but... Sadly not enough.
Very... Experimental? The names of the band and the album intrigued me, but it wasn't my cup of tea. The beginning is very messy, and Human Cannonball turns out to be the one nugget or iron in the rough. Not a diamond, and I really mean rough. U.S.S.A. made me feel like I was going insane, and in the next track The O-Men we get a surprise feature from the Looney Tunes' very own Tasmanian Devil with a hint of Donald Duck. And then we switch over to a completely different Indian sty- nevermind we're going insane again. I'm booking an appointment with my therapist, now that I'm done writing this review. I'm going to give a second star based on my interpretation that it's the gradual collapse of a war veteran's sanity, but it remains a pretty bad experience.
Who let the high asses into the studio? Old days you buy the album cuz of the one song (Elictric Larryland) to find out the rest of it sucks. Has its moments of good guitar riffs
Some very strange music here. Some of it interesting and inviting; Sweet Loaf, Human Cannonball. But most if it dissonant and off putting; U.S.S.A., The O-Men 2.5 🌟
I can confidently say that I will never listen to this album again. I've heard one or two tracks from the band before. Listening to a whole album was not far from what I expected from the band. No thanks.
Quite a memorable ride. The music was kinda cool at first, but got tired fast. Though interesting as it was insane, would never listen to again.
I really wanted to like it but think they have matured over time and this isn't their best work. This feels a very chaotic, unstructured and experimental compared to their more recent stuff.
This seems impossibly bad... I actually like some of there other stuff (Who Was In My Room Last Night, Pepper, Hurdy Gurdy Man) but this wasn't for me
En mèrit de la banda, cal dir que van editar el disc en una época en la qual tractar d'epatar encara no era la norma. En aquest sentit van ser un dels pioners. Fora d'això, 'Human Cannonball' és un gran tema. Tota la resta, entre l'experimentació i la broma; no aconsegueixo pensar en quin perfil de persona es posaria el disc per disfrutar d'una estona de música
Nee, dit kan mij nie bekoren. Beetje rommelige geluiden. Zelfs als experimenteel album vind ik maar weinig leuke geluidjes. **
Ah back when being young and angry was all you needed to have a band
Once the image layer fades, and it fades rather quickly, the music left behind turns out to be blatantly uninspiring, predictable, and shabby.
Bizarre record. Not really my cup of tea, but the experimentation brings out some interesting ideas and songs on it, but too many just fall flat and don’t do much for me. 4/10
Heavy punk…horror movie type music. Unlistenable unless you’re either super super angry and/or demonic.
Importante pelas camadas de punk, metal, mas a sequência demonstra que falta melodia no meu entendimento.
This was an interesting listen. I have always been put off by the name of the band. I get what they are going for but it just didn't gel with me. Same with the title of the album. It's all part of it. Yet listening to the album, it was a mess and very hard to listen to, but yet there was something there. It had a certain charm that made it an interesting listen. Of course, I'll never been listening to this again, but that's the point of this list isn't it? 1.5/5
Noise rock. Experimental. Básicamente ruido.
Noisy and a little bit odd but better than surfer rosa so I can't complain.
Well this was…different. I respect it for sure, but it’s hard to imagine wanting to listen to it again lol. Wild stuff.
don’t think i’d listen again
Disturbing and not even that good
Rock un tanto extraño con predominio de guitarras distorsionadas. No muy llamativo
The teenage boy inside of me really wants to love a band named Butthole Surfers, I just don't though. Noise Rock is just not my thing. "Human Cannonball" sounds more like a classic Punk track and is probably my favorite. It's an album that I get why some people like it and the name of the band is just awesome, just not my thing.
"tell her satan satan satan" and i know i wont like this this is so confusing, is this even music, i dont think ill listen to this again hmmm the start of kuntz isnt that bad, kinda ethnic, what language is this but why does it have to do that in the middle i dont get it im still confused forgone loving, only pain bam bam bam there seem to be complicated riffs? im not literate enough to appreciate them tho. also i hate the dental instrument sounds thing end of 22 going on 30 - are those mooing cows???
Wish the music was as cool as the band name
just angry noise
I don't understand. I just don't.
Just awful. Maybe one track that could be described as an actual song, human cannonball. Oh and the other song where they just said cunt the whole time. Painful
Bruh gimme something good pls
Not for me.
This should be the last album on the list, because it made me want to die.
Una mierda, como Green Day fatal
Didn't much enjoy this record. Interesting adding the layering of tape machines to hardcore.
Like listening to a seizure. Would not recommend.
I can’t decide between using trash or garbage to describe this. 1 star is earned for its short length that offers me mercy after this torture.
Just mindless playing an inaudible lyrics. Horrible. Great band name tho. 1/10.
Didn't think I'd get two dumpster fires in one week but I guess that's what happens when you hire clowns to give locusts abortions.
Offensive Cover title, song names and lyrics. They earned a big thumbs down. They must have been craving ways to shock an unshakeable group of groupies. Middle schoolers using DJ mixer studio apps made this type of music in the 90’s when I was teaching. Leave the Locust alone.
een extra sterretje voor de originaliteit, wat het resultaat voor dit kakofonische album op 1 ster brengt...
Garbage... couldn't sit past first track
As an album it’s weird. As a style and based on year it’s ahead of its time but I still don’t like it. 2.6/10
Reminding myself that it's perfectly fine to hate this and still love the Beastie Boys. I don't completely hate it, but the old adage remains true. A little of the Butthole Surfers goes a long way. I'm also 99 percent sure I'll never listen to this album again.
Tuttu nimi, ja kuvittelin tämän olevan jonkinlaista ska/funk/punk tyyppistä rentoilua. Valitettavasti olin väärässä, ja korviin lyötiinkin levyllinen jotain todella epämääräistä progeoutoilua. Ei kyllä maistunut yhtään vaikka pariin kertaan levyn taistelinkin läpi. Human Cannonball oli muusta linjasta poiketen ihan kuunneltava biisi. Parasta levyssä oli vain 32 minuutin mitta.
Kuraa mitä kuraa. Jos levyllä on pari kohokohtaa, joista ajattelee, että eihän tää oo kuin vähän huonoa, niin ei voi paljoa yli ykköstä tarjota. Turhan kokeellista tavaraa.
Really not in the mood for this
Locust Abortion Technician is an experimental blend of punk rock, heavy metal, and psychedelic music. This fusion led the band to be associated with the emerging grunge and sludge metal sounds. It also employs elements of worldbeat rhythms, noise music, progressive guitar, and folk music, and has been described as art rock, noise rock and alternative metal. The song "Sweat Loaf" utilizes a warped riff parodying the verse riff from the Black Sabbath song "Sweet Leaf".
I don't know. It's gets a bit more interesting near the end. Especially 22 going on 23. Just the whole thing was kind of noise, and I really fucking that "It just sounds like noise."

At least now I can complain about fucking weird and unlistenable I find it.
I actually kind of like Gibby Haynes, but this album is an absolute mess. I consulted the book to see why it was on the list, and the reason is basically that it's weird as hell. I went from Muddy Waters one day to this the next. No. Best track: Human Cannonball
