5.0 out of 5 stars Metal Burned Sees Ghosts Crusade Spider Sour, 30 Jun 2007
This review is from: Roots & Crowns (Audio CD)
This is one of those albums, which seem to defy classification and that in itself makes it something which should be in every music fan's collection. Taking ideas and genres from all corners of the music spectrum to make something, which is genuinely fascinating and satisfying to listen to. Beautifully crafted, down right quirky, it flutters from gentle folksie ambience to hypnotic grind in the blink of an eye. And it does it all effortlessly and without self-indulgence. Intelligent without being overbearing and pretentious, it's full of surprises and joy, even after the umpteenth listen.

At the same time they seem to take a child like delight in the noises they make, and that brings with it a freshness and clarity not often heard; intense, laid-back, ramshackle yet perfectly constructed, scratchy, funky, bluesy, whimsical, gossamer threaded events that scamper delightfully from gentle, almost casual tunes to whirling dervish steel cored grunt and back again, without even breaking into a sweat. Brilliant.
