The Chinese Stars - A Rare Sensation FLAC album

A Rare Sensation Tracklist. 1. Cheap City Halo Lyrics. 2. Electrodes in Captivity Lyrics. 3. Girls of Las Vegas Lyrics.

Much like their West Coast counterpart, the Providence band has put together a full-length album with nine attempts at playing the same goddamn song. All the tempos are exactly the same, there's a token noisy guitar riff that introduces every track and then sticks with it throughout, and singer Eric Paul consistently rattles off crackpipe lyrics about body parts, bugs and machines. And, save some occasional breaks, there's more fucking swishy hi-hat than anyone could possibly tolerate  . But elsewhere on A Rare Sensation, tracks follow one another indistinguishably. An occasional this-or-that jumps out of the album's obnoxiously persistent monotony, but in most cases, it's Viera on guitar again, clearly the band's hardest working member.

Much of the nine-track record â?“ 'A Rare Sensation' marks the band's second release, the first being last year's 'Turbo Mattress' on Skin Graft â?“ is comprised of atonal riffs that, repeated ad nauseam, really could get on some people's nerves, methinks (especially the piercing guitars that encapsulate "(Love) and the Electric Chair", "Dressed to Get Blessed", "Cheap City. Halo", et al), pounding, groove-filled, Gang of Four-like bass, and sometimes-nervous drumming.

The Chinese Album is the second album from the expatriate British alternative rock band Spacehog. It was released on Sire Records on March 10, 1998. The Chinese Album was considered for a soundtrack and basis of a film called Mungo City (later called The Chinese Movie). It was to be about a band that moves to Hong Kong for success after being rejected by a New York record company. Unsatisfied with the final script, Spacehog dismissed any plans for shooting.
