Boomkat Product Review:
"Carrying on with the rolling reissues of Giant Sand/ Howe Gelb which will see the re-release of roughly 30 albums. "Center Of The Universe", originally released in 1992 , is the eighth Giant Sand reissue in the series. Howe holds 'Center Of The Universe' close to his heart, explaining the record "Could be my favourite record .. written in a one room cabin at the end of the road in the high desert around Joshua tree where I lived for a few years ... recorded back in Venice, California with the same slant as was instilled in the writing ... adorned with the 'psycho sisters' who show where the melodies in these songs were hiding ... now through the miracle of remastering, these tracks sound more vibrant and alluring". What was a common approach to record making for Howe and Giant Sand, 'Center Of The Universe' would be the last of a kind, "it marks the last time I could work like this, before the advent of family life was to take over and populate the day .. this record marks the ¬nal time of isolation with a happy careless abandon and an immediate urgency delivered by a wired up acoustic guitar with stomp box distortion ready and willing. ''The experiment: to record a vocal in fragments while intentionally singing di erently each time on the same song, then combining the takes instantaneously . The result was "loretta and the insect world".
