Enter the mirror.

Besides having the best band name ever which apparently is a combination of Japanese and French that sums up to mean "Fucked up and Naked", Les Rallizes Denudes live album from 1977 is ear shredding beauty at it's finest. Building the songs around simple bass and drum repetitions allow the guitars to open up a full scale attack. The focus is on building the songs and not just simple abstraction. Recently a few albums got the vinyl reissue treatment. I can only hope this gets the same attention that those studio albums got although I would be scared to see the retail price of it. This is a double cd which means the vinyl may have to be a triple if not a box of four lps. Sometimes though you just have to jump in head first. Even if it does carry the risk of ending up fucked up and naked.
