5.0 classicTheNemeton91 | April 21st 18

The Fathers of Desert Rock bring us a warm, scintillating journey through the American
Southwest. "Rock Formations" -- and it's seemingly mundane, yet subtly reflective
paleogeological title -- presents the listener with an evocative, fully realized
pilgrimage through its abundant, brilliantly actualized imagery. An immersive experience
from start-to-finish, every track invokes distinct scenery and texture, as though one
is having a vicarious sensory experience. The production compliments the archetypes
throughout superbly, as one can practically feel the desert's heat as they drift through
the wonderfully crafted, redolent soundscapes. The lush instrumentation and composition
is hypnotically recursive in nature, lulling the listener into a comforting daydreaming
daze of escapist wanderlust.

Whether You're a Stoner/Desert/Surfer Rock enthusiast, looking to get lost in an
enveloping musical environment, or simply miss the nostalgia of roaming the deserts of
Red Dead Redemption, "Rock Formations" is a theater of the mind, a distinguished
landmark of the genre (this very band principally made possible), and the single most
evocative album I've ever heard. - 4.8/5
