Retro Transmission

Editorial Reviews

Chrome's first full-length release since the death of co-founder Damon Edge in 1995, 1997's Retro Transmission is a resounding return to form for a band who had lost their way after co-leader Helios Creed had left in the mid-'80s. Ironically, this tribute album is worlds above any of the disappointing albums Edge released under the Chrome name from 1986 to 1990. Wisely keeping the lyrics to a minimum and on songs like "Sirius System" and "More Space," processing the vocals so heavily that their content is beside the point, Creed and the new Chrome lineup -- featuring the return of John Stench on drums and brother Hilary Stench on bass -- keep the focus entirely on ...

Wisely keeping the lyrics to a minimum and on songs like "Sirius System" and "More Space," processing the vocals so heavily that their content is beside the point, Creed and the new Chrome lineup -- featuring the return of John Stench on drums and brother Hilary Stench on bass -- keep the focus entirely on hypnotic rhythms, pummeling drums, and Creed's guitar and keyboard treatments, which add a layer of atmosphere and mystery to what would otherwise be fairly routine grinding, metal-edged rock songs. The highlights are the two most extended tracks: the nearly 11-minute title track, which sounds like the Stooges' "L.A. Blues" transported a few centuries ahead, and the almost pretty, worldbeat-influenced closer "Mithras."
