Album Review: Goon Moon Licker's Last Leg
By J. Pierson

Goon Moon features Jeordie White (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails), and Chris Goss (Masters of Reality). The songs on Licker's Last Leg feature disturbing yet beautiful lyrics combined with an interesting mix of industrial, desert rock, and other unusual musical styles. Each track has its own unique personality and the album as a whole offers pleasing, and sometimes surprising treats for the listener's ears.

Much of the music for this album was recorded around the same period as the tracks for their 2005 release, I Got a Brand New Egg Layin' Machine. However the vocals tracks were laid down only in the months leading up to this release.

This is some of the most interesting work I've heard in quite some time. The creativity that has gone into the conception of this album makes it quite a rewarding listening experience. It's hard to choose a stand-out song, as they are all great, but two my favorites are Lay Down, and The Golden Ball. Their cover of the Bee Gees' Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You is also a remarkable track.

Type 3 Rating: 9 stars out of 10
