Lyrics are strange, vocals are off kilter, instrumental passages are not typical, and it all fits together amazingly well. The album name, "Yerself is Steam" is a lyric that keeps popping up on the first track and is a misinterpretation of the phrase "Your Self-Esteem". It is a study of contrasts throughout it's seven minute runtime.
Loud and chaotic, soft and dissonant. Even here during a quiet moment, there is that sense of unease. At the 2 minute mark, drums kick in and so do the psychedelic sounds of guitars, building a wall of sound, the vocals becoming locked into the entire mix, not standing out, but not completely buried within either.
It becomes more dissonant as it continues, then suddenly the wall is dropped and it's just acoustic guitar, but then it builds back again quickly. Guitar forms a melody just barely over the background noise.
It is mixed at a subdued volume, vocals are again trapped in the mix, and totally psychotic sounding. The lyrics are very creepy but mostly indiscernible and the song is Syringe Mouth - Mercury Rev - Yerself Is Steam (CD dark, building in volume and intensity.
Vocals also include some howling, but deep in the mix. This goes on a little too long in my opinion, Syringe Mouth - Mercury Rev - Yerself Is Steam (CD, and this works against the entire album unfortunately. This track is more of a shoegaze sound than the rest of the album. On the CD edition, there is also a hidden bonus track called "Car Wash Hair" which was released as a single as a follow up to the album. This is probably the most conventional song on the album, mostly because the vocals are easy to understand and mixed more to the front of everything.
There is a nice combination of conventional and unconventional going on in the instrumentals behind the vocals that keeps things very atypical, and not very "single" sounding. When the guitars build their dissonance during the instrumental break, there is nothing conventional about it at all, but some sanity returns for the last verse, but loses control by the time we get to the end.
Not a lot of people will probably like this, especially if you are expecting something like the albums "All Is Dream" or "Snowflake Midnight", but I find that I keep coming back to this and that I actually enjoy it. It took me a few listens to get it, but it stirred my curiosity enough to want to understand it, so I kept listening until I grew to appreciate it.
This is very interesting music, and it has a lot of emotion and dynamics, but is just not quite good enough to be considered a masterpiece, and I almost get the feeling that was the intention. Anyway, I consider it an excellent addition to my collection, and suggest that if you like Album) Rev already, maybe you should venture into their earlier music and see if it suits you also. Mercury Rev's debut is an early nineties psych album. It's very much of its time but in a good way.
In the mid's I found a cassette of this left in an old house, took it home and gave it some listens. It might be incomprehensible at first and leave the listener slightly winded with it's cac You must Syringe Mouth - Mercury Rev - Yerself Is Steam (CD a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.

Jan 26, · Yerself is Steam is the debut album by Mercury Rev. It feels chaotic and psychedelic, with distorted guitars throughout. Nowadays they write (rather good) lushly orchestrated, psychedelically-tinged pop songs. It opens with Chasing a Bee an aggressive, haunting piece which is really whacked out.
