5.0 out of 5 stars The best album of the elevators..., 9 Oct 2003
This review is from: BULL OF THE WOODS (Audio CD)
And posibly one of the best of the 60's
As I have mentioned before.. there are alot of albums that are such great efforts that seem to end up only in the pail shadows of other big rock n roll artist of the 60's
or perhaps.. also correct in this records matter, its genuinly put aside beacuse of crusual fans that miss the direct rawness of their first recordings like shall we say "your gonna miss me"
this is nevertheless and good effort.. oh sorry.. correction its a great record..
Its doubtless the most swingin record of theirs and its got great guitars great feedback effects great riffin great movin and great grovin, its got great echo effects that hymn gostly in the air on rose and the thorn for instance.. which perhaps starts off slow but later on gets to some real swing.. and some great riffin.
I have a theory that this albums exprimental features on the echo that I mentioned that are featured on tracks such as the above mentioned.. and the finishing track May the circle remain unbroken..
And the clever use of just enough brass orchestra backing up with a rich and filling feel on such tracks as the opening riffer.. living on , never another and the marvalous dr doom.
seems to be sadly unapriciated beacuse of them missing the hype when.. beatles were all on the same track a bit earlier.
(as you know the same thing happened to other overlooked albums from the same era, for example byrds noutorius byrd bros, the doors soft parade)
But I find this an unfair way of judging since really its used more cleverly here.. its not over done.. its not naive or just too much Its placed cleverly and done with some great feeling.
this album is also.. frankly overlooked beacuse of the fact thar roky erikson was not as dominant.. but why is that looked upon as a bad thing.. the band wasnt all about roky sutherland and hall contributes with great material here
and the guitars are smashin
its just all great
just a pity its just such an overlooked an missunderstood peice of work..
when street song fades out.. the guitars roughly but yet neatly ring out in space.
its and amazing album this
its forward moving,, it is swingin.. its flowing and yes.. it is creative and innoviative.. Its just one of those albums that ended up in the shadows beacuse of other bands better commerical position and perhaps better studio technice
I find it sad
DR DOOM is the best song of the truck the rollin guitars in the brigde and the striking brass in the bridge along with the striking drummrolls and mindblowing.. radical and philosphophical lyrics.. are among the best of all
And its certainly more where this came from
trust me
highly and highly recommended
a cool exprience
the half murky sound might ruin for the sparkling a bit
but it give the album another grooovy touch
just listen
