Wolf Eyes, 'Human Animal' (Sub Pop)

Human Animal
Critical Mass
Label: Sub Pop

by Chuck Eddy

Like countless noise bands before, Ypsilanti, Michigan's enfants terribles are secretly better at pleasant background environments than screeching terror. And on their eighth album, sundry spans of dub space and seashore thunder throb more gristle than their vaunted Tasmanian devil tantrums. When the clamor stays spare, the threesome's clank and bleep stumbles into beauty and their feedback morphs towards free jazz; "Noise Not Music," by contrast, is just lousy punk rock.
