The tight musicianship on "Madonna" is striking and leads to the question whether And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead are indeed the reincarnation of The Butthole Surfers. There are fragments of looping and whooping on here,but there is, however, less of a sense of chaos.It not clear who who did the production but he or she did a very fine job, the loud sound being crystal clear. And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead supposedly come from somewhere south in the US, you know the kind of region where illegitimate grandchildren of Ronald Reagan kill schoolchildren a couple of times each day, and I'm not referring to the car drivers. There's a song about Mark David Chapman, the man who put an end to 'Dream #9' and 'Double Fantasy'. 'Flood of Red' indicates another sense of mauvais sang, yet the brutality on record is rendered with great care and urge. 'A Perfect Teenhood', 'Mistakes & Regrets' and 'Blight Takes All' are splendid combinations of adrenaline fed energy and compositional talent. …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead sound like Sonic Youth at times. Throughout "Madonna" they prove to be rowdy, but also considerate. "Madonna" is the kind of album to prove your 14 year old nephew he's wrong thinking Queens of the Stoneage or Limp Bizkit really are the loudest and meanest. This is fab.
