Boomkat Product Review:
Originally, Super Ae was released in 1998 and is something of a historic release for the band, with indie tastemakers Pitchfork declaring it the 44th best album of the 1990s. Opening with the crushing weight of 'Super You', the band sounds like someone skipping through a Boris CD, or perhaps hoovering up Earth mid-set. Only for the comparative tranquillity of 'Super Are', with its twinkling organ keys and choral vocals, to shift the album's tone into the sort of sound world Yes occupied in their early days. Three-and-a-half minutes in and the calm is broken, erupting into the sort of tumultuous space-sludge that makes Boredoms recordings such addictive listening. The Dadaist punk rock onslaught of 'Super Are You' hits a far brighter note, its ADD-afflicted, wailing slapstick marking another highlight, on an album absolutely loaded with vintage Boredoms material. For new fans, this is a great place to start delving into the band's backcatalogue, otherwise it's just great to have this back in print. Highly recommended.
