The Barracks Of Afghanistan’s 2006 release Color is one that I was neither surprised by nor disappointed by. The release is purely 37 minutes of noise. 11 untitled tracks that sound like they were recorded live in one take with no edits. Nothing complicated. I will note that track #2 is much louder than the rest, not in harshness, but in stereo volume. Not sure if this was an error or not but I nearly jumped when it came on.

The track lengths range from 7 minutes to 90 seconds and for the most part each track starts off with a heavy bass rumble for about 10 seconds and then the fun begins. Pure harsh vocal-feedback, crashes of loud clutters and some hi pitched pinches are just some of the noise played in this disc. The last track although sounds like it was recorded somewhere else and doesn’t fit with the rest of the noise, nothing bad, just low-fi sounding. To me, trying to review this disc was like trying to review The Rita. There is nothing that stands out about this noise and yet I like it because it’s pure and simple. I hate it when I expect something from an artist and then get disappointed. You won’t find that from this disc.

The package is RRRons trademark recycled paper and collage art in a slim case. Purely simple, like the noise. Now why is it titled Color? Just listen.
