Another 70's stoney, jam-rock album enters the fray.
So, what sets this one apart from everything else?
Not a lot.
Instead, they rely on atmosphere and some solid restrained instrumentation to bring it home instead of the "take a tab and
go all out for 20 minutes" approach some bands use to the point of annoyance.
At this point in the genre, many of these bands tend to employ similar songwriting tricks including the obligatory drawn-out
guitars solos and trippy interludes. This is no different; instead, we are treated to some driving riffs to break up the trip.
All of these traits culminate the title track, a 20-minute romp through some well-executed 70's soundscapes.
The vocals are easily the weakest thing about this record. They lack punch and are mixed low to hide this, you'll often hear
them droning over the top of sections that would be better off without them.
This is basically middle of the road, nothing to truly stand out yet better than some of the pretentious rubbish out there.
