Ocean Towers Distractions
Basslines as heavy as hell but an atmosphere as cold as the Canadian Arctic Circle. Who needs
complex song structures when you have basslines that groove this hard, vocals this smooth and
production this good? Atmospheric psychedelic rock doesn't get much better than this.

The Grand Astoria La Belle Epoque
While a step down from Punkadelia, not entirely unexpected after being so prolific, La Belle Epoque shows a lighter, more upbeat and compressed side to The Grand Astoria with light blues-rock tunes such a Henry's Got A Gun and slow-burners like The Answer, showing further how versatile they can be with their sound.rHowever, it suffers from the recurring problem of thorny vocals and could have done with a better-flowing structure, possibly being longer. Including more elements from the lead-up to its release like awesome single Blessed, Cursed and Crucified, plus acoustic tunes from 'Who's In Charge' and the atmosphere of 30-minute epic 'The B

Anubis Hitchhiking to Byzantium
One of the best progressive albums of 2014. While at first it may seem like a lengthy, classic-style prog rock album, each song is unique and has subtle developments in the lyrics, rhythm section, keyboard-led atmospherics and of course the phenomenal guitar-work that make Anubis as fresh and exciting as they are.

The Grand Astoria Omnipresence
Not as good as Punkadelia, mainly because of the sometimes-jarring vocals but tracks like Hungry & Foolish, the two intrumental tracks Omnipresence/absence and 13 minute epic Something Wicked This Way Comes are some of their best work. Stoner-punk-metal-s hard

The Grand Astoria The Body Limits [From Montenegro Split]
Just one, brilliant, 30-minute long song here, the band at their finest in terms of chilled-out atmosphere, instrumentation and Sharapodinov's vocals in particular are much improved to the point where they uniquely add to the music instead of possibly detracting. A mini album in its own right.

  • Zantera The more I listen to Variations on a Dream, the more I'm starting to think it could be their best, even above Little Man. It's hard to say, I love Little Man and What We Have Sown, both are amazing, but Variations on a Dream has no weaknesses. And the strengths of Vapour Trails, Part Zero and Remember Us alone makes the album one of their best.
