3.0 out of 5 stars If you had a football team of Nu-Gaze The Cult Of Dom Keller would probably play full back, 23 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Cult Of Dom Keller (Audio CD)
Here we are in 2013 as psych expands in the glow of the current revival.
The Cult Of Dom Keller, from Nottingham fit neatly into the branch of neo-psych that are following in the vapour trails of the Velvets, Jesus & Mary Chain, Spacemen 3 and the shoegaze genre.
This crowded field includes The Black Angels, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Lucid Dream, The Janitors (who I saw co-headlining with The Cult Of Dom Keller), Dead Skeletons, Dead Horse One, The KVB, plus any more I may have missed or forgotten.

The standout track is "Worlds", an immense number that really takes the album to a higher standard with a cavernous riff and rather reminiscant of Ride, at a powerhouse 7+ minutes it is an album standout. "You Are There In Me" has stomping drums and another great riff below the effects. "Nowhere To Land" feels suitably huge and cavernous. "All I Need Is Not Now" is suitably trippy and closes the album in style. Generally the second half of the album is stronger than the first.
Other tracks though come and go though without making much of an impression: "Eyes" has an appealing glam bass line but fails to really deliver with it

The Cult Of Dom Keller is a good, solid album with a lot to enjoy, but in a crowded market they struggle to go toe to toe with some of the albums by the bands cited above. Worth checking out for any psych fan though.

So The Cult Of Dom Keller would be a reliable full back. A Place To Bury Strangers and The Lucid Dream have the style and attack to play up front, Dead Skeletons and Janitors rock solid in defence, Black Angels as the powerhouse midfielder. Don't know who's going in goal, mind...
