Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band - Doc At The Radar Station (2006) Retail CD
The best Beefheart "comeback" album after his mid-70s slump is "Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)" (to my ears at least).
This one is a guitar-only affair, stripped of the pretty aural baubles of the previous album, which did actually lend Beefheart a touch of mad avuncular charm.
This one is more direct. The songs are no less enjoyable, from the bouncing alliteration of "Hot Head" to the shouty nod to Van Vliet's future career "Run Paint Run Run."
Other tracks are in the challengingly unmelodious "Trout Mask Replica" mould, such as the ear-bleeding five-minute aural assault "Best Batch Yet" ormore… the whopping migraine of the brilliant "Sheriff of Hong Kong."
Other tracks teeter-totter on melody and audience enjoyment such as the hilarious "Ashtray Heart" (where Beefheart shows his age, losing the gusto behind his growl) and the patchwork madness of the impressively weird "Sue Egypt" (my favorite track).
Instrumentals are surprisingly touching for Beefheart, and returning band member John French lends a great contribution.
The last track "Making Love to a Vampire With a Monkey on My Knee" is riddled with expletives, which seems a little gimmicky, but Beefheart gets away with it because he gets away with everything.
Recommended for Beefheart fans only.
