For some people, Wes Borland will always be a joke.
His time spent slathering himself in body paint and/or wearing costumes while playing knuckle-dragging riffs for Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit is an unforgivable sin to many music lovers, regardless of the identity he’s tried to craft through his fledgling solo outfit Black Light Burns. In BLB, Wes controls the entire show. He’s the engineer, the producer, the visual artist, the singer, and he plays nearly every instrument to boot. No one can point to Fred Durst and say he’s had a hand in any of this stuff. And yet, sometimes the shadow of shit that accompanies Durst everywhere he goes (The Unquestionable Truth not entirely included) is too much to look past for some. They’ll never give BLB a shot.
Which is kind of sad because BLB’s debut record, Cruel Melody wasn’t half bad, and the follow-up, The Moment You Realize You’re Going to Fall, has some worthwhile music as well. These aren’t great albums by any stretch of the imagination, but if you pick and choose, you’ll find some tunes that you might actually enjoy.
