Experiments with music has always been kind of a saddening idea in music, because it means goodbye to the old sound and the way you love it. But sometimes, an experiment can just be a self-testing, which was why it was always in Whirlwind Heat's nature. It was also the reason little amount of people who like music take them as seriously. Only Whirlwind heat would name all of their songs after colors, and only them would they write 10 songs in 10 minutes. Quite a feat, ain't it? It's a lot better than getting short 30 second clips in stores, ain't it? Aye ca-friggin-ramba. Think of it as an EP where you are listening to clips of what is to come with another album. That is what I love to do. "The Bone" starts off kind of 80's New Wave-like which, to tell you the truth, is a shame to lose in 1 minute.
After "The Bone" comes the wild and frantic "Meat Packers". If there is ever a reason to buy this album, "Meat Packers", despite it being kind of messy, it keeps time conscious. "Lazy Morning" is one of the best pieces because it sounds like an actual morning song made from electrical piano. And to try and capture an entire day in 1 minute is kind of difficult.
The thing you have to love about this album is that this is one of the albums that is very fun to listen to and fun to experiment on your own. And it also may be pointless, but so is writing 69 songs about love (Magnetic Fields). So that you won't be able o say it is a total waste of your time, Flamingo Honey isn't a total waste of your money. But a simple follow to a command to try their talents and their hand at originality again. Just don't expect it to change your life, as much as it could broaden it with ideas.
