Completion Backward Principle – The Tubes [#299]

on April 23, 2015

The_Completion_Backward_PrincipleSometimes, on reflection and looking at things in their chronological placement, you realise that an album you like is actually more evolutionary for the band than you first thought. Completion Backward Principle is The Tubes’ sixth studio album. Again, another concept album, but this is was never evident to me until recently.

It’s evolutionary for the band because it sees them signed to Capitol records following their previous recording label, A&M, dropping them like a hot coal. It is also perhaps the pivotal album in their career as Outside Inside really starts to reflect the band’s decline which culminates in Love Bomb (1989).

My older brother recorded this onto a cassette for me. Home taping killed music. That’s why nobody has heard any new music since 1986.
