Album Review
Reviewed 2009-12-07
Totally bluesed out stoner rock. Don't be deceived by their silly name. These guys are deadly serious stoners. Fuzzed out, distorted guitars, that reek of Jimi Hendrix, excellent Earthless style drumming, and a heavy bass section that ties things up and moves the whole thing forward in a pretty consistent way. All instrumental, except the last track, and recorded live. Tracks are LONG, so if for a short show, play track 3. For fans of KFJC (especially Cythoth), Black Sabbath, Earthless, Major Stars, and the like. Highly recommended!

Picks: 2,4,3 *** No FCCs ***

1. swirling guitar noodling, a intro fit to whet your appetite for more
**2. whoah! stoneoloid intro into this monster of a space rock ragga! takes a while to pick up but it definitely pays off. these guys rock! i dare you to play the whole 22 minutes if you are doing a graveyard shift...
*3. a nod to 70s heavy rock, a la Blue Cheer, Hendrix, full of wah wah and bad attitude. KILLER guitars. radio friendly length, fades out
**4. slowly plodding bluesy jam, a la Black Sabbath, fluid guitar that spirals up into a solo of EPIC proportions. bass and drums do a great job keeping up too... very nice! another monster track
5. the stoner ballad, washed out echoey vocals a la Planet Caravan or Zepplin. the post-hangover, green day song
