Excellent review of "Aufheben". I've yet to listen to the album in its entirety, but anyone who has plus listened to the songs in the making the past couple of years knows that the musical direction The Brian Jonestown Massacre has expanded with leaps and bounds. They're ahead of their time with musical influences from other cultures, yet also sound like an obscure garage band from the late 1960's. They are not the dysfunctional band they've been accused of being because of "Dig!". The band had grown up, grown artistically, and most of the main members still collaborate and tour together. The best thing about them is they don't answer to the demands of a major record label. They have complete artistic freedom. I think they are quite underrated and the hardest working band in the workd, particularly Anton Newcombe. Your article gives us an excellent description of their roots, their musical direction, what "Aufheben" is all about, and most of all your respect and appreciation for The BJM.
