Short Cuts

McCloud also twists things slightly. On past records his lyrical scope tended to aim just below the belt, but here he looks at the larger picture, in particular the seedy underbelly of America as it goes mainstream. In "One Firecracker," a comment on the gentrification of Times Square, he raps: "You got Mickey Mouse/ You got pornography." Perhaps the paranoid confusion of "Vogue Thing," with its mishmash of ad slogans, better fits the end of the century.

Either way, GVSB shows that by borrowing from industrial, punk, new wave, hip-hop, and dance genres it can create music that stimulates the mind and the body. -- David Simutis
