3 or 4 excellent songs but the rest?.....,
This review is from: Embryonic [Standard] (Audio CD)
this really is a great album you need to give it time as it can be a difficult
experience at 1st - a couple of the tracks do sound like they are all just playing at once to test their eq levels - personally i just dont get trout mask replica or can its just not for me so the 'krautrock' influenced avant garde stuff on here leaves me with a bit of a headache - that apart there are 3 or 4 simply jaw droppingly brilliant tracks on here which no other band on earth is capable of producing.'Evil' 'If' Convinced of the Hex' 'Silver Trembling Hands'and the collossal 'Ego's last Stand' Its no Yoshimi or Bulletin thats for sure but when you achieve Godlike Genius its all downhill from there,the thing is... downhill for Coynes crew is still better than every other band out there.
I must say though that the production on this is dire - it sounds like a demo in parts
