also, they have very few lyrics about "smoking weed and getting drunk". the reviewer has clearly never listened to Clutch prior to this review. what a shithead.
The lyrics of Clutch songs have progressed from early releases that were marked with an angry, serious tone to latter releases that are characterized by intelligence, wordplay, and subtle humor. The songs make frequent references to history, mythology, pop-culture and religion. for example, "I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth", from the 1995 self-titled album, tells the story of a fisherman who discovers the corpse of Lincoln's assasin in the susquehanna river.
The lyrics also contain some surrealist imagery, as in this quote from Robot Hive/Exodus's "Burning Beard": "Every time I look out my window/ same three dogs looking back at me. Every time I open my windows/ cranes fly in to terrorize me."
but yea, they're about "weed and getting drunk". you stupid kid.
