Skip to content. Great Great Great. My favorite Jon Spencer album. It has a good mix of guitar, wierd random yelling and screaming, melodies and humor. That's the telephone, baby. Buy it. Do yourself a favor. The two bars in "New Year," where everything falls away, isolating Judah's skronk-boogie hipshaking guitar - worth the price of admission alone.
Jon Spencer is the man. He doesn't play no blues, he plays rock n roll. No kidding, Jon. Most of my friends and I are Blues X fans and have checked him out many times in concert he tours constantly, it seems. ACME was a semi-disappointment in the eyes of a lot of his fandom.
I'm glad I trusted Spencer. I'm glad he held his punches on ACME. This CD rips. It's raged havoc on my car speakers, because I can not and you will not be able to keep the volume down. Easily the most accessible Jon Spencer album, best to start off here if you're new to the club.
I thought all the chaos was made up in the studio but they do it all live, and live it doesn't seem like chaos at all, but very funky and very moving. Spencer is a rock genius. Long may he rock. At least at first While "Acme" was a good album -- better than "Now I got Worry" and "Extra Width" -- I much prefer the alternate versions presented here. Overall, "Xtra Acme" has that same sort of experimental flavor and energy that hooked me the first time I heard "Orange" -- arguably the best album JSBX has made to date.
See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. But it was more broadly inspired by the suspicious questions about how he uses the art form that have dogged him throughout the band's seven-year career.
It's part of what we do. But it's not the end of it, it's not the whole thing. Octagon spliced tape on "Talk About The Blues," just to name a few. With all those cooks in the Blues Explosion kitchen, the band manages to pull off a cohesive album by relying on what it does best. There's gospel, hip-hop, even doo wop Rolling Stone.
