Brainscan

Genre: Soundtracks; Lead Performer: Various Artists; Producer (group): Ruffhouse

This soundtrack, Brainscan, packs plenty of hefty guitars, but almost every band on board (Tad, Butthole Surfers, Primus) renders the noise corny with straitjacketed rhythmic ( convulsions and loony-bin vocal shticks. Only Dandelion and Mudhoney, both of whom mimic old Stooges records, seem to value emotion over dumb jokes. How can you trust a cutting edge when its freshest moments are acid-rock nostalgia?
