The lesser of Hurl's works,
This review is from: We Are Quiet in This Room (Audio CD)
Hurl were a great little mid 90's band from Pittsburgh who somehow slipped under a lot of people's radar (mine included). They released 2 albums, a handful of 7"s and this mini album. The albums are fantastic, twisted rock with complex rhythms and more than a touch of Slint in places. This release- their final, is along similar lines musically.
The weak spot of the band was always their vocals and this fault is at its most glaring here. They weren't terrible, just somehow not quite up to the incredibly high standard of everything else. They don't completely spoil this record but are mixed higher than on previous releases and do detract a little in places.
That said it's not a bad listen and as with most of their stuff, impeccably produced by Bob Weston. I hope someone does a discography one day as the albums in particular are getting hard to find.
Recommended for fans of 90's emo and math rock type stuff.
