Second comeback album from the Boston post-punk band is the work of a group that's totally comfortable, and confident, within its own skin. One thing The Obliterati has over its post-reunion predecessor is continuity and cohesiveness. As good as onOFFon is, it's still the work of three guys who hadn't played together for nearly 20 years. That there were more than a few dips into the past (both in Burma's catalog, and in Roger Miller's own songbook) also speaks to this hesitancy.

Smashing out of the gates a mere 2 years after the first post-reunited Burma album, OnoffOn, The Obliterati knows exactly what it is and the name says it all. It’s a blistering, rumbling attack that obliterates the line between melody and sheer squalor. With the opening drums that rush the band into 2wice, the albums barrels forward with all the energy of the original Burma intact, though a few small problems again crop up to relegate it to ‘mere’ greatness. The tape effects and chopped-up solo work wonders here, too, evoking a great feel of classic Mission of Burma material while conveying a new and mature sense of irony and humor. The later 1001 Pleasant Dreams evokes Secrets as a blur of vibrato guitar and booming bass wrapped up in a chorus of oooohs, though one might wish for a more rushed pace, the bass parts and guitar swirl definitely prove the might of the new Burma.

When Mission of Burma released Onoffon in 2004, a large part of the album's charge for fans came from the mere fact it existed at all - after calling it quits in 1983 thanks to Roger Miller's hearing problems, Mission of Burma seemed like the least likely of all great bands to reunite, and that they were able to reconvene in the. recording studio without embarrassing themselves felt nearly as important as the quality of the music, strong and powerful as it was. So the fact MoB are still together in 2006 ups the ante for their second post-reunion album, and The Obliterati wastes no . .

What an incredibly strange release. I picked this up used at a shop for 24 bucks. I knew going into the purchase that this was going to be an obnoxious listen: 8 tracks spread across 8 A sides with Shepard's "iconic" art work etched into the B sides. Five stars for content and audio quality alone. One would be better off finding the two LP release of the album proper. It does have quite a few more songs on it after all.

This was actually marketed as " There's a Time and Place to Punctuate" as a subscription series leading up to the release of The Obliterati. Item pictured in this listing is 1/50 signed by the artist Shepard Fairey and was offered along with the CD singles through the artist's website. Another 450-500 copies were sold as the subscription series through the band's wesite and sold out in under 5 days. Of those, a few handfuls were packaged together as all records and sold as "There's a Time and Pace to Punctuate" under cat# OLE 700 in retail stores. My copy was purchased at Newbury Comics and was shrink wrapped, with price tag indicating this cat #.
