best song in the world

I am waiting for my mind to be blown again as wholly as it was when, a few listens in, this album blew mine. "Pendulum" is an anthem worthy of jihad. "Order for the New Slave Trade" got my bush burning.

Seriously amazing

One of the best GBV albums, and certainly the best thing on Box. The concept of this album may be depressing, but the songs are very strong, and tie into the theme very well. Club Molluska, Pendulum, Drinker's Peace, When She Turns 50, Local Mix Up/Murder Charge, How Loft I Am, so many classics on this album. Get it now!

Classic concept album

Ynyr

The production on this one is so-so, but the songs are very strong. The first track is a noisy collage, but from there it just gets better. 'Pendulum' is one of the best rock songs of all time. I envy anyone getting into GBV for the first time.

Six Degrees of Loaded

By Matthew Fritch, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Likely their darkest album, Same Place the Fly Got Smashed is another solid effort that takes the form of a tragic rock opera about a doomed, midwestern alcoholic. While the joylessness of this concept wears a bit thin over the course of the 13 tracks, the songwriting is compelling enough to make it fly. Punk rave-ups (“The Hard Way” and “Local Mix-Up/Murder Charge”) and accoustic strummers (“When She Turns 50″ and “How Loft I Am?”) are equally capable in the evocation of the emotions of guilt, hopelessness, and forgotten innocence that pervade the album. – Brian Egan
