Trouble - Trouble
Trouble – Trouble
(Def American ’90)
The world in which Trouble toils tirelessly has no weather, no expression and no sound save for dark religious rumblings emanating in agony’s waves, an agony forged from moral codes lost for a hundred years. Trouble is the horrified look around, not so much for an examination of society in ashes, but a lament at intrusion into a twice-removed dream world, shocked by invasions from mere lucidity. Eric Wagner is far beyond and beneath the concrete within himself and others, his world stage occupied by the liquidity of pure soul forced to flow through the waves of pain, love, hate and redemption that comprise the stench of Earth, in search of benevolent arrival back in the world of dreams. Trouble is the band’s most devastating and stark utterance to date, rendered basic, carnal and spiritually uncomplicated by the love and respect of studio force Rick Rubin and his signature Def mix, even though truth be told, Rubin wasn’t there half the time. Through clouds of misunderstanding and subsequent tragic understanding, the band pile im gleaming heaps, their most decadent, stinging and anguished riffs to date, metal beyond the mind’s eye, metal aimed at blood. Thus the molecular Sabbath of At The End Of My Daze, thus The Wolf, thus The Misery Shows (Act II), creating a howling symphony that is a never-ending cry from seas of red velvet lining the infinite coffin. And woe to be, thus R.I.P. and Heaven on My Mind, a twisted pair of thorny caffeine-pounders that demonstrate Trouble’s insane vortextual heaviness, power chords as high as K2, life experience unimaginable, leaden and weary beyond reality into a haze of retro-ectasy. Blistering and pure, Trouble has assumed both the actuality and potentiality of vintage Sabbath, roaming far beyond, in creation of their own kingdoms in the shifting uninhabitable sands of souls in torment. Yet I’m convinced Trouble would have occurred without Sabbath. Too much truth to be a derivation; I can only compare. Both bands were right. Trouble, the record, is the clearest glimpse though the storm Sabbath also braved, and the view is spectacular and sad.
