Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2007-08-21
Guitar bass drums vocs play morose stripped down yet heavy rock. Like Low on steroids. Something “Chicago” about their sound, like a heavier version of Karate. Moody and guitar driven (moody guitar driven).

1) brief sample of someone asking “what is your name…is it difficult for you to communicate”
2) big guitar plod rock, crashing bass and drums, vocals
3) quiet near-ballady with same slow pload, guitar/bass/drums but picks up later and gets louder
4) a dark plodding sort of riff, ebbs and flows, but mostly is morose
5) plodding and dark, with morose lyrics
6) chill, cleaner guitar, no drums, some vibes sounding percussion, repetitive/hypnotic, song ends after ~4 min, then some experimental studio sounds, hidden mic’ish ending with a brief low fi FCC (“shit”) that can be easily avoided, then the next 5 minutes or so are dead air with the very last 4 seconds the most idiotic “hidden track” ever, not even a track, just a guitar chord
