3.5 greatMythodea | November 7th 17

Motorpsycho have managed to pull through even with the major line-up changes. The Tower
is a massive album with great melodies and ideas, that takes its time to discover each and every
corner in the room before closing the door behind. After their phenomenal Here Be Monsters, they
return to a more signature sound and jam furiously in what can be one of the most satisfying
albums of the year, while also paying homage to their heroes and influences. Don't forget that the
album is complimented by one of the best looking album covers of 2017. r

Where it lacks: The sheer amount of its time (75 minutes) makes it clear that no matter how
enjoyable it is, it can be very demanding. It never gets actually tiring or boring, but there is a
bunch of moments where the fat could be trimmed down. For instance, A Pacific Sonata, clocking at
around 15', is neither that varied, nor much adventurous to justify the duration. The album is
really talkative and I bet the fans are anything but disappointed, but hopefully their next album
will be more channeled.Don't get me wrong though, this is definitely not an album to avoid.

How this band produces such consistently good albums and yet remains fairly underground, even (to a lesser extent) on Sputnik, is beyond me.
