Babylon Rules is ugly. Really ugly. In fact, if I were to attempt to equate Clockcleaner's latest album (and first for the Load label) with something, it would probably be a violent naked homeless man with cataracts breaking glass bottles over his head. This ugly and often confrontational style of music that Clockcleaner plays is really what makes them such a great band. At first they may come off as unpolished punk rockers with a love of Big Black and Flipper. With repeated listens, this record begins to reveal itself as extremely intelligent, focused music with a relentless rhythm section and a singer with a vocal style that can only be described as unsettling.
