PRIMUS ANIMALS SHOULD NOT TRY TO ACT LIKE PEOPLE reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Stooge
Back in 2003, I was still using dial-up internet. This meant I would usually spend very little time online, making it difficult to get news about my favorite bands. I believe the first I heard about the Primus reunion was when I saw this DVD/EP package at a local shop. Needless to say, I was excited!

The DVD contains plenty to sink your teeth into. There are a number of music videos spanning from Frizzle Fry through to Antipop. The majority of the music videos also feature commentary from the reunited band members. Additionally, you get some behind the scenes and bootleg footage of the band, some of which was previously contained in out-of-print videos “Cheesy Home Video” and “Videoplasty”. Other content, such as a Frizzle Fry era radio performance and a videos of “Sgt. Baker”and “Groundhog’s Day” with the pre-Lalonde/Alexander lineup, was previously unreleased. The menu layout makes it fun to search for all the content.

This package was marketed as a DVD with the EP as a bonus, and the new songs show that the band still had the creativity and quirkiness that made them popular. I don’t think I have a favorite track among them, as I think each one is rather memorable. Pretty much every track contains their brand of unusual atmosphere and experimentation, but are centered across strong rhythmic foundations and unique storytelling. I’m not reminded greatly of any one previous Primus release, as it does a good job of capturing different elements of all their Herb-era albums.

Whether you’re buying this for the DVD or for the music, this package should not let a Primus fan down. Both casual and hardcore fans of the group should really enjoy this.
