Major Stars Return To Form on LP

Starting with a mid-fight schoolyard threat like "Better Stay Down," Major Stars definitely seemed to be returning to somewhere on their 2010 album Return To Form, maybe even perhaps somewhere adolescent where the rock and roll was never better? But really, titling the whole damn thing Return to Form has some humor in it. 2007's Mirror/Messenger wasn't out of form; all Major Stars records have been a part of a vision. 

Major Stars atomized us to fucking bits on Mirror/Messenger and were just returning to a fully formed entity three years later. And here Major Stars blow us to pieces again. Return to Form's got eight pieces, all heavy rocks, a few of them come with power jams. There's also a few just under three minutes, but distinguished by riffage that lifts 'em up. The guitar trio of Wayne Rogers, Kate Village and Tom Leonard is into their third full album as such, allowing them to have fused into a wall of distortion with a myriad of identities but singular purpose. Behind their ubiquitous combination signal, the drums trample with pummelous authority.

Still, they can't help but sound a bit crushed by the din, glorious din. This is Major Stars' signature rock of the easties - more likened to the sounds of Motorpsycho than any of that psych-rock these days. Again, this is organic growth, home territory. Could it be that the space you know is better than the space you don't know? Major Stars had the answer, and it was Return to Form.
