DNA, "A Taste of DNA" / 1981 Review by: Gai Arimatsu
"No one ever went broke trying to underestimate the American public's taste"-H.L. Mencken and that was the case with DNA. They had a sound and groove that was amazing. Free form and atonal, this record shines with the brilliance that marked the band and showed how they would pave the way for lesser acts like cibo matto, Soul Coughing, DJ Spooky, and Matthew Sweet. Everything comes together as it single-handedly shatters tonality and structure and heavy lyrics. It all comes to a stunning focus that strips away music to what it should be-emotion, not mathematics.
