    Put a Nickel in My Hat

    To be sure, Shellac can be catagorized as "Albini advanced," meaning that they are mostly for the seasoned Albini fan who still needs a fix after Big Black and Rapeman. You either love his music or you hate it, and while your opinion means nothing to Steve, Shellac is obviously designed for fans of his musical persona. That being said, Shellac are a more challenging band, but "At Action Park" (whether a fan's favorite or not) is easily their most accessible album. Albini junkies will revel in the chaos that is "My Black *ss," enjoy the ambitious, progressive track that is "Crow," and take a liking to what is probably the best quiter Shellac track, "The Idea of North." Shortly after this album was released, Steve joked in an interview that all Shellac songs are either about baseball or Canada. Now that you've been warned, watch for references to Satchel Paige, Babe Ruth, ballplayers, and Canadian ties. It's pretty amusing. Albini has also said that "The Idea of North" is about Canada. Only "Dog and Pony Show" dares to venture south of the border, describing a trip to Tijuana gone wrong. If you can respect challenging math rock, with weird time signatures and strange starts and stops, you'll enjoy this album.
