Pere Ubu - The Story of My Life (1993)
11:27 AM

By request, here's another Pere Ubu album from the nineties. Features one of my favorite Ubu songs, "Wasted". This album was released two years after the horrible Worlds In Collision (which AMG for some reason seems to love), and sees David Thomas return to his more creative and playful side. It's still all pretty slick, and especially the annoying echoed drums remind more of stadium rock than art rock. The guitar work by Jim Jones is amazing however, and is stylistically very much in line with early Ubu records.

Overall this is a fairly mediocre Ubu album, which is still too slick for its own good, but it's an important step in the right direction, eventually leading to the return to their roots with 1995's Ray Gun Suitcase. Highlights of this album are the opening track, "Wasted", which starts off like a sea shanty and then very briefly explodes into full-out rock, the poppy "Sleep Walk", which sounds a lot like the Talking Heads, and the bizarre "Postcard", if only because the awful drummer is replaced by a drum machine.
