Reviews & Opinions

ALL MUSIC GUIDE: A sometimes harrowing song cycle that depicts a first-person descent into drug abuse and self-destruction, the album is in some ways like a late-'90s reworking of Hüsker Dü's Zen Arcade, ditching that album's conceptual sprawl but keeping its forward motion and yowling intensity (as well as its psychedelic leanings -- the album's highlight is a snarling pure punk version of Syd Barrett's "Lucifer Sam"). Even the lighter material, like the Queers-style "Bob Cut and a Lunchbox," is pretty desperate. Transmissions from Planet Speedball is a surprisingly potent and unflinching look at the dark side of rock & roll life that delivers a powerful message without resorting to sensationalism or preaching."
