Song Yet to Be Sung

Song Yet to Be Sung

by Perry Farrell


11 New & Used Starting at $1.99


Perry Farrell, electronica cybernaut, and Perry Farrell, hard rock shaman, have more in common than skeptics might at first expect. On his drum-'n'-bass-anchored solo debut, the onetime frontman of Jane's Addiction and Porno for Pyros grafts his favored sonic textures to the breakneck rhythms of jungle and trance. That means that tracks like "Did You Forget" wheel and dive with the bombast of Jane's classics such as "Mountain Song," with Perry's wispy, singsong vocals wailing like a flock of hawks above a parched desert valley before plunging into thunderous bass lines. Elsewhere, as on the shuffling title track and the mallets-kissed "King Z," the lilting melodies recall Porno hits such as "Pets." Which is all to say that Farrell fans will find plenty to like, despite their hero's futuristic fashion inclinations. The only ones in for disappointment are dance fans, who will likely find much of the programming on the pedestrian side. Other rockers, notably Primal Scream, have put their own torn-'n'-frayed stamp on electronica-themed outings, but Farrell seems more willing to let clubworld dictate his sound -- more than a little curious for the cultural visionary behind Lollapalooza. It seems like Farrell is too enamored with the freedom of electronics to tame them as he did glam rock and heavy metal in his glory days. Thrills abound for fans, even if Song Yet to Be Sung doesn't quite live up to the title.
