This review is from: Pure Rock Fury (Audio CD)
This is not an album you can hope to digest in one, two or even six listens. There is simply to much energy, too many ideas and lyrical gems contained within in these tracks for your brain to take it all on board.... it might even put you off at first.... and yeah it's stoner/heavy/hard rock.... and for that I'm truly grateful because this really is one of those albums that stomps all over the idea that the genre is a tired lumbering dinosaur. Music this vital makes supposedly more progressive bands sound as if they should be playing on a bandstand on some little country village green on Sunday afternoons to old people who
can't become too excited for fear of inducing a heart attack.
I suppose if you want comparisons (i always do) think Black Sabbath/Deep Purple with the latter's virtuoso talent poured into a musical blender (instead of spent on drum solos and concertos) and Tom Waits' mushroom addled younger brother on vocals (possibly). In fact if there was one album I could compare this too it would be Deep Purple's "in rock" as it has a similarly huge groove and sense of unrestrained fury...
All in all a top album that I'd recommend to anyone who likes hard rock playing hard to get.
