A return to form? Definitely! However, with some experimental additions as well. The
legendary Flotsam and Jetsam have released a new and very ambitious CD
called Ugly Noise. Let’s start by not doing what everyone else is doing.
You’ll read reviews that feel the need to discuss previous members, in
addition to the politics surrounding the recording and distribution of
Ugly Noise; not in this review. Reason … because none of that really
matters, this review is about the here and now; this review is about the
music on Ugly Noise.

We begin with the cover, the tattered remnants of a piano that’s clearly
seen some better days. The sepia color and the angle of the keys,
together they create depth and a mood which is exclusive to Ugly Noise.
By comparison, the Ugly Noise cover is a unique and welcomed addition to
the Flotsam and Jetsam catalog. That’s not to take anything away from
the artwork on No Place For Disgrace for example, which was done by the
brilliant Boris Vallejo; it’s simply different than the other CD covers.

…And being different is a perfect segue into the music portion of this
review. Let’s speak philosophically for a moment. The Chinese have a
proverb which can be applied here … “Be not afraid of going slowly; be
only afraid of standing still.” Here’s the analogy, Flotsam and Jetsam
have never musically stood still from one CD to the next, they all
differ in some way; and some more than others. So here’s the big
question, why do so many people try to pigeonhole Flotsam and Jetsam
into one musical genre? If you approach Ugly Noise expecting it resemble
their previous CD The Cold, or perhaps mirror No Place For Disgrace,
then you couldn’t be more wrong; and you obviously haven’t been paying
attention to the ever changing musical directions of Flotsam and Jetsam.

Without plagiarizing themselves, the majority of Ugly Noise sounds as
though it could have been released following the High CD, or even
following Unnatural Selection (If the production on that one wasn’t so
far removed from the others). Here’s a couple examples. With a haunting
yet very melodic chorus, “Run And Hide” could have appeared on Cuatro.
“Carry On,” while delivering even more than its predecessor, has an
undeniable “Fork-Boy” quality during the verse, and might have also
added to the flow of the High CD. Moments like these make Ugly Noise a
fun listening experience for the fans that have been there from the
As mentioned earlier, experimental elements can also be found on Ugly
Noise; which may or may not sit well with some. Case in point, “Rage”
has a slight industrial feel, but only when they say the word “Rage,”
“Motherfuckery” is even more industrial, somewhat in the vein of
Rammstein. The only thing questionable would be the chorus on “To Be
Free,” it tends to get a bit rap-like. Too much rap would simply be
intolerable but not to worry, it’s just a bit. Although the chorus seems
to miss the mark, “To Be Free” is still thrashy and really does play
well at loud volumes.

Speaking of loud volumes, the production on Ugly Noise is top quality as
are the musicians in Flotsam and Jetsam, so play it loud!

Considering there’s something here for everyone, thrash, straight
forward metal, hard rock and even some industrial flavor, if you
approach Ugly Noise with an open mind then you’re sure to find some gems
that will appeal to your musical palate.
