Album Review

One of the most intense moments on Chan Marshall's 1996 breakthrough LP, What Would the Community Think?, "Nude as the News" rides a starkly incoherent, strangely political bend, with Marshall singing matter-of-factly, "Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me/and he's related to you." The B-side, "Schizophrenia's Weighted Me Down," is an acoustic collage of mental illness, combining elements of Sonic Youth's noise rock schism "Schizophrenia" and the psychedelia of Alexander "Skip" Spence's "Weighted Down (the Prison Song)."
