The Furies = Better Than Ezra + Beck + whisper screaming
Glow’s opener, “Death of Man,” could be an okay rock track if properly recorded. But, you know that whisper-scream people do when quoting a scream from a song/movie? Well, the Furies recorded that for some reason. Many tracks are just noises—a door closing, a repeating guitar pattern, random drums and arbitrary, incoherent 12-inch-whisper vocals. I feel like an empty Tampico bottle would deserve a better review. Here are the ways that a Tampico bottle would out-do Glow: It can be used to create danceable beats by tapping it on things and squeezing it for a crinkle sound. It can be recycled, so that I feel like I’m doing something to make the world a better place. Also, I could fly to Louisiana, fill it with oily water to do my part in the gulf clean up, then pour it all over this copy of Glow to make sure that no one else has to hear it.
