TRUCKERFUCKER – Man’en Med Ljaa1
While "Man’en Med Ljaa1" is by no means a groundbreaking masterpiece it is a very good disc. Besides the aforementioned "KoronAss", which isn’t even my favorite, the Witchery stylings of "Kjetta" with its distinct sharp RIFF which will likely get stuck on your head, and the surprisingly mid-era Paradise Lost and Hypocrisy melodiscism of "Min klage" are recommended but my favorite is the fantastic punk rock closer "Ode til E6", so uplifting even though I’ve no idea what they’re singing since everything is sung in the native Norwegian. As for the rest, there’s one song which could have been better as its Motörheadian avant-garde old Solefald potential has not been fully realized, namely the Prongish "BæBuBil" but other than that the material is consistently very good but not great.
"Man’en Med Ljaa1" is fun, melodic if hardly groundbreaking black’n’roll which serves its purpose but I hope TF won’t stop there and expands their horizons based on those standouts, say, a fusion of ideas from "Kjetta", "Min klage" and "Ode til E6" in the same track for a unique mix?
