1000 Hurts

Shellac - LP - Rating: 9/10

When this came out it felt like a return to form for Shellac. It opens with the fantastic “Prayer to God” which, upon first listening, any schlup (like me) would immediately run to their guitar to try to figure out. It’s a good excuse to use the F-word a whole bunch. The album loses a little steam on the second side but ends with “Watch Song.” It’s another barn burner complete with violent lyrics and the scuffling sounds of what I assume is supposed to be the fight alluded to in the lyrics.
