BMRA-Round 1-AEnima vs. Shake Your Money Maker

Tool's AEnima
Image
Review by Rob Theakston

For their third release, Tool explore the progressive rock territory previously forged by such bands as King Crimson. However, Tool are conceptually innovative with every minute detail of their art, which sets them apart from most bands. Make no mistake, this isn't your father's rock record. Sonically, the band has never sounded tighter. Long exploratory passages are unleashed with amazing precision, detail, and clarity, which only complements the aggressive, abrasive shorter pieces on the album. There is no compromise from any member of the band, with each of them discovering the dynamics of his respective instrument and pushing the physical capabilities to the limit. Topics such as the philosophies of Bill Hicks (eloquently eulogized in the packaging), evolution and genetics, and false martyrdom will fly over the heads of casual listeners. But those listening closely will discover a special treat: a catalyst encouraging them to discover a world around them to which they otherwise might have been blind. If these aren't good enough reasons to listen to Ænima, then just trust the simple fact that Tool deliver the hard rock goods every time the band chooses to release something.

The Black Crowes' Shake Your Money Maker

Review by Steve Huey

The Black Crowes' debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, may borrow heavily from the bluesy hard rock grooves of the Rolling Stones and Faces (plus a bit of classic soul), but the band gets away with it due to sharp songwriting and an ear for strong riffs and chorus melodies, not to mention the gritty, muscular rhythm guitar of Rich Robinson and brother Chris' appropriate vocal swagger. Unlike their later records, the Crowes don't really stretch out and jam that much on Money Maker, but that helps distill their virtues into a handful of memorable singles ("Jealous Again," "She Talks to Angels," a cover of Otis Redding's "Hard to Handle"), and most of the album tracks maintain an equally high standard. Shake Your Money Maker may not be stunningly original, but it doesn't need to be; it's the most concise demonstration of the fact that the Black Crowes are a great, classic rock & roll band.

I kid. Pink Floyd is great in its own right and even though I enjoy listening to The Wall and Wish You Were Here in their entirety, I get disenchanted with it very fast, but that's my personal taste. I just don't find it relevant for me, whereas folks my age listen to it as if they knew it forever when they've only be introduced to Floyd for three minutes. Tool had turned me off at hello and despite giving them a few chances, I just passed up on it.

Can't stand prog. The wall is a horrific, bloated mess, with a couple of good songs lost in the middle of all the self-indulgence.

That said, though I'm not personally a fan I do think Tool deserve to get an album out of the first round, and although I enjoyed the Crowes, their work wasn't particularly earth-shattering.

GAH! Hardest one yet. Two of my favorite bands here. I'll go with Tool, just because AEnima is one of the best records of the '90s and Shake Yer Moneymaker isn't even the Crowes' best album.
