Puscifer
V is for Viagra

Company: Pucifer Ent
Release: 2008
Reviewer: Devil Dave
Genre: Remixes

  • Being remixes, they don't have the same power



  • This is an album of remixes off of their first couple of releases. Being remixes they don't have the same power as the original releases. Being a big fan of Maynard James Keenan, I was expecting a much better release. This is still good, but just not up to the standards of Maynard's others. The first Puscifer release V is for Vagina, where most of theses songs first appeared in their original form was a much better album to listen to--it's the nature of remixes that they are very repetitive. The opening track on this album, Indigo Children is probably the best of the bunch. If you want to listen to Puscifer get their first couple of releases instead of this one. They have a single, Cuntry Boner, and EP Don't Shoot The Messenger, and a full length V is for Vagina--all of those releases should be your first choices if you are interested in this band. Getting that out of the way, I'm not saying this a bad album; far from it actually, if you are a fan of electronica and remixes this is a very good release. If you are not interested in Maynard James Keenan or Puscifer and are just are looking for something new to pop in check this one out. Going in not knowing the artist or what he is capable of and being a fan of electronica, you will probably enjoy this one very much. In closing, if you are a fan of Maynard looking forward to his next release check out the other Puscifer albums first and check this one out at a later time. If you are not interested in Maynard and like remixes check this out first and then maybe discover this band's other and much better work at a later time. It won't be a waste of money if you purchase this, just know which catagory you fall in and only get this if you already have the other stuff.

    5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
    4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
    3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
    3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
    2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
    1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
    0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

    Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

    Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

    The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
