Primus, Green Naugahyde
2011 | Label: ATO Records

The first Primus album in a dozen years is a step backward, but a somewhat productive one. Drummer Jay Lane played with the group in 1988, contributing to the writing of material heard on their earliest releases, Suck on This and Frizzle Fry. He left before they recorded, though, and didn’t return until 2010. Maybe that’s why Green Naugahyde is reminiscent of Primus’s earliest work, with grooves — driven as always by Claypool’s funky slap… read more »

I am a bit biased because I have always loved the unique sound of Primus. They are quirky and I love that their lyrics nor their sound mimic anything mainstream. I was at times waiting for some POW moments with a bit of a faster rhythm and more powerful vocals. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 6.5. Still fun to listen to.

The eMusic reviewer is kind of missing the point of Primus if he thinks Claypool's vocals are annoying pantomime. Is Neil Young whiny, is J Mascis squeeky? Hell yes, and that's why we love them. Their character rings truer than some washed out vocoded pomp. He is right about the album putting them back in the saddle again. Though, I wouldn't call it backwards so much as back on track. Welcome back old friends.
