Ruins - Alone

SKU 39-Skin Graft100
I wasn't quite sure what to make of this when I heard about it; was it going to be a solo drum release from Yoshida? Anyway, my concerns were allayed when it arrived and I got to hear it. It's a fully orchestrated, (I suppose with computers and keyboards, but it's hard to tell since it's all so over-the-top!), completely band-sounding record with great songs, great drumming and just exactly the Magma-influenced, adrenalin-fueled sound you would want and expect!

"It’s been nearly 10 years since the last Ruins album was released. Now, having traveled the world time and time again, refining Ruins for the 21st century, Yoshida is ready to release the debut album from Ruins Alone. These 23 tracks feature all-new compositions as well as new recordings of classic Ruins songs sporting new arrangements."

“The main riff is as stubbornly assured as anything Bad Brains put to wax, and lest you get bored during its eight seconds, another wild-ass riff is there to take its place, again and again.” — Pitchfork
