The Seer #22 in Clash top 40 albums
Opening with the message, “Your childhood is over”, ‘The Seer’ corrupts the listener with vicious, soul-coring sounds and breathtaking passages. There’s a lot of sex on this record: Oedipal complexes, blowjobs, Karen O, and Gira himself. But as your mind melts midway through the title track and a harmonica sets in, dormant synapses flare.
BEST BIT: Karen O floating like Florence Nightingale over Baghdad.
