We gave it an B-

Back when the Jesus Lizard were uncompromising indie heroes, vocalist David Yow spat out demented lyrics as the band lurched along in fits and starts like drunks trying to play the Stooges’ songbook. Shot documents a more nuanced approach — Yow actually attempts to ”sing” in places — but the overall effect is still fairly addled. Like this, uh, inspirational verse: ”If you like shooting up crack/And catching all kind of flak/You’ll lead an interesting life.”
