5.0 out of 5 stars "14 dreams on a CD", 17 Feb 2003
By

This review is from: Sunrise on the Sufferbus (Audio CD)
Q. How do you make a blues/rock album that sounds wholly original and becomes timeless in history?
A. You are Chris Goss.
"Sunrise on the sufferbus" is one of the finest records ever. It combines the sheer genius of Chris Goss (guitar/vocals) with ex-Cream sticksman and all around blues legend Ginger Baker, and Bass master Googe. From the opening track, "She Got Me (when she go her dress on)" to the closing "The Moon In Your Pocket", you are taken on a blissfully moving journey. It's like 14 dreams recorded for listening pleasure. There is so much that could be praised about this album: the tear jerking melody to the heart warming blues of songs such as "V.H.V." echoing early 'Cream'. Comparisons can be made to other artists such as Pink Floyd, Mark Lanegan and Led Zepplin for the song writing, structure and melody used. Don't get me wrong though, this is a totally original style of music and I don't think it would be fair to put a tag on it. There are bits of everything here: blues, reggae, folk, metal.
My advice to anyone is to purchase this record, then put it on a portable CD player. Take it outside to a secluded place on a sunny evening, sit with your friends and soak up the utopian pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars TUSA., 9 April 2001
By 
George Connor (The Remote Parts of, Scotland) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Sunrise on the Sufferbus (Audio CD)
I got a copy of this from a friend of mine about five years ago and the tape is now looking rather worn. Simply, this is very accomplished blues-rock. Intelligent and addictive. Whole-heartedly recommended to those who enjoy early Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, the Black Crowes and any other such artists. A very unnoticed and very impressive CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Gem in the Holy Space Egg, 18 Sep 2007
By 
This review is from: Sunrise on the Sufferbus (Audio CD)
Chris Goss is mainly known for his excellent production work with Kyuss and his role in the QOTSA camp as producer and player. Before all this, Goss made awesome records under his own Masters of Reality flag. The first album (produced by Rick Rubin) was an absolute stone classic (buy it!). Imagine Cream possessing the bodies of the Blue Oyster Cult, whilst Hendrix fiddles in the background. After a short period in the wilderness after parting with DefAmerican recordings, Goss returned with this beauty of an album. The Cream comparisons were potent enough to tempt Ginger Baker to join as a full time member. The psychedelia, weirdness and overall groovyness were racheted up as far it would go. Songs about the 'inability of yanks to make a good cup of tea', cycling around at night and ants in the kitchen are hallmarks of the whackiness of this album. Recently in Mojo's lost classics top 100.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mastered Reality., 13 Jan 2004
By 
This review is from: Sunrise on the Sufferbus (Audio CD)
Chris Goss, composer and vocalist for Masters of Reality, has got a lot of stripes on his arm. He's produced for Kyuss and a whole host of other bands. He's created some of the heaviest stoner/dessert rock there is and he's done a damn fine job of doing it.
Loving Kyuss and I knew Goss' name from sleeve notes and was interested to hear his own work - if you like Kyuss and other bands of that ilk, there's little to fear. Not as heavy or riffy as most stoner rock, this work is a little more restrained - with the quality of the songs though, it matters not.
This album is brilliant and there are moments where you feel you can hear the roots of stoner rock sprouting up all around you. Its Rock like Rock is supposed to be.
Later work features Nick Oliveri and many others attached to the central stoner rock movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drum Paradise, 3 Jun 2001
This review is from: Sunrise on the Sufferbus (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic project from fantastic musicians, one of which is the drummer Ginger Baker. More people should be listening to this but no-one seems to have heard of it. Rock, blues and slightly progressive but an all round good listen.
