referencing Destroy All Astro-Men!!, LP, Album, ES 1215

Man Or Astroman? is among my favorite bands, that lesser known group many music fans have and love to tell others about. And this is my favorite of their full-length releases. Destroy All Astromen is tight, cohesive as album, and above all, fun. On an album with few vocals, one first notices the band's extensive use of old sci-fi movie samples as the delineation between songs. But after listening over and over as I have, what stands out more over time is, for all of the pseudonyms and goody credits, how good Astroman are musicians, particularly on guitar. It's the musicianship that sets the vocally bare songs apart, and I tend to think that's not terribly easy to do.
Highlights include "Reverb 10,000," "The Heavies," and "Destination Venus," one of the few vocal tracks.
