I used to love Godflesh in the nineties, even the Pure and Songs Of Love And Hate albums. But in 2002 I got completely bored with them and didn't listen to them for about two years. Then I listened to them again and most of it immediately struck me as cheesy (particularly S.O.L.A.H and Slavestate, and I always thought Selfless was a bit boring anyway) The only album that stays good is Streetcleaner, it such a heavy album in all ways but it's also original, it's his best attempt at redefining heavy. The rest seems too image-conscious, too formulaic. So I got rid of the other Godflesh cd's I had. I think I still have two dubbed tapes (Pure and a compilation of EP's) but they're buried under a thick layer of dust by now.
Coincidentally Streetcleaner is one of the most enduring albums in my collection. The others being Altars Of Madness and the first few Slayer albums. Some stuff really never gets old. "Effortless..."
