CLUTCH THE ELEPHANT RIDERS reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Kingcrimsonprog
Clutch’s third full length studio album ‘The Elephant Riders,’ is an unquestionable classic record that was released back in 1998 and saw the band in an experimental mood, pushing the boundaries of the formula they designed on their previous record. Many Clutch fans will cite this as their favourite Clutch album, and with good reason.

Clutch themselves; if you are unfamiliar, are an eccentric collection of gifted musicians and unique songwriters who mix straight up hard rock music with all sorts of weird ideas to create dynamic and interesting music that is difficult to categorize and that varies from album to album.

Courtesy of the amazing front man Neil Fallon, the band feature some of the most remarkable and creative lyrics and vocal performances in the genre; mixing engaging story telling with humour, surrealism and obscure historical, political and pop culture references.

Musically; this album covers a lot of ground. There are still some fairly energetic oddball rock songs like on their previous effort, a lot more groove, as well as some mid paced tracks full of guitar effects and some jazzier moments as well.

Stand out tracks include the absolutely storming and groove laiden Title Track, and the lyrically amazing and guitar effect filled `The Yeti,’ as well as ‘The Soapmakers,’ which is an utterly unique song which will put a smile on even the most serious listener’s face.

Overall; this record is an utterly essential Clutch release that no fan should be without, if you have any interest in Clutch then you ought to pick up a copy.
