Album Rating: 3.5
"it's not like this is the first time the Seeds took a backseat, the music dictates it sometimes lol"
true but something felt... unceremonious about this album? re: photo in the gatefold. at least they're all on the back cover of Boatman's Call.
like i said i enjoy this album but i wanted a hell of a lot more Martyn Casey. and it bothers me that it's mostly just bassy synth tones instead. that's more personal preference than anything so whatever. i was disappointed that the players i've enjoyed, who have made their impression on every album prior to this and felt valuable in at least some small way, felt like guests on their own record. i wasn't looking for a full-on rock album either. they've done full-band ambient on their last two and it was fucking awesome. if nick and warren didn't think that would've worked then that's fine, but that's what i would've liked more of.
