22 abstract, 11 concrete, 23 experimental, 7 formulaic, 5 meaning, 25 impression and 4 Beefheartism!
from the album Shiny Beast
The Magic Band, in any incarnation, was one of the tightest and most impressive musical groups to ever exist, comparable to some of Frank Zappa's best backing bands, and I don't say that lightly. Although often overshadowed by Beefheart's surreal lyrics and "hip weirdo" image, they were brilliant in their own right, and produced some extraordinary instrumentals. Ice Rose is, in a way, their highpoint -- abstract, concrete, experimental, and formulaic all at once. It draws on traditional forms yet sounds unlike anything that came before it. Combining electric guitars, bass, horns, marimba, and drums in amazing ways, it's probably the instrumental highpoint of the band, at once totally accessable and utterly unique. The "wildcard" of Beefheart's vast catalogue, in that it should please almost everybody. The perfect calling card for the incredible talents of The Magic Band.
Beefheart once said that most modern music was based on a repetitive rhythm, like the pound-pound-pound of a factory line, something cold and mechanized made to brainwash the masses, music to make people march in step like robots ... whereas his own music deliberately deviates from that factory rhythm, using shifting time signatures and unusual syncopations to break people out of their cookie-cutter mindsets and prod them into thinking for themselves. Listen to anything on the radio from the last thirty or forty years, then listen to Ice Rose, and tell me he's not onto something.
Beefheart Albums I'd Recommend To You ...
If you somehow managed to score Ice Rose, you have a musician's heart. You live, eat, sleep, and breathe music, and couldn't imagine life without it. I'd feel comfortable recommending ANY Beefheart album to you, because you'd probably "get" what The Magic Band was trying to do on most or all of them. Shiny Beast is a good place to start, since it's The Magic Band at their tightest and most professional, while still retaining their experimental edge and unique vision. The perfect balance between accessable and visionary, where old musical styles are combined in amazing new ways, and where even the simplest songs have something extraordinary about them. A lot of Beefheart fans consider this album his finest hour. And they just might be right.
