Corporeal Face: The Upward Spiral

Total hands-in-the-air rave which has a big beaming smile on its face, and maybe a bit of a smirk at the concept of normal life. It seems like the modern hardcore producers have refined this style of music so that the cheesier, more gimmicky sampling of the early ’90s incarnation of this music is mostly absent, and that the more effective, pleasure-center-hitting elements of the tracks are present. (I’m not talking about more shitpost-y mashcore artists, I mean the types of producers doing more legit hardcore revivalism on labels like Sneaker Social Club.) This one has a nice balance between the more head-in-the-clouds ecstasy moments and the slamming mentalist breaks and Hoovers. The more junglistic “Shake Your Brain” is the highlight, though “What a Trip” takes the plunge further into madness.
