4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff!, 22 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Mazes (MP3 Download)
An excellent slice of slightly scuzzy, lysergically inclined synth pulses and guitar riffage. Hugely enjoyable and a good one to crank up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mash-Up Madness to Batter The Brain., 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Polymorphic Code (Audio CD)
Having heard a track by The Algorithm on a sampler cd that left my synapses pleasingly frazzled, I was keen to hear more and so I took the plunge with the full album. Essentially, The Algorithm is a one man, multi-genre electronica act that splices together a multitude of styles in a way that is at once quite clever and cerebral and yet also mind-manglingly entertaining. Every time I've thus far played this album, I've laughed out loud in places at the sheer audacity of some of it and I've always been left grinning like a goon and feeling I've had a jolly good time well spent.
The overall effect of this mash up of hard-trance, djent-metal polyrhythms, prog metal flourishes, drum n bass, dubstep, electronica and all points in between is like about 20 genres have squeezed themselves together in a car and gone out in a blaze of glory driving at ramming speed through your brain and off a cliff. In a good way, of course.

I've not tried it with headphones yet, but I think when I do I'll have some camomile tea to hand and the Samaritans on speed-dial.

Thrilling stuff; clever and absurd and frankly glorious!

4.0 out of 5 stars Outer Limits of Metal, 12 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Worlds Beyond the Veil (Audio CD)
I've been after this album for sometime owning as I do the following masterpiece "Behind the Shadows Lie Madness" and, although "Worlds beyond the Veil" isn't quite as awesome as that album, it's pretty close!
Defining what Mithras do isn't easy and it's not going to be music, - even metal - for everyone. Put simply, Mithras are number one in a field of one. They use death-metal as a foundation but frequently soar off into the stratospheres of space-rock, prog and even touching on the avant-garde. The musicianship and delivery is top notch and the music reflects the intense focus and emphasis on creating a vast, though self contained universe that a two-man, mostly studio project might generate.
If you like your metal but have fairly adventurous tastes and an occasional hankering for exploring the outer-reaches, there's much to enjoy with Mithras. I'm eagerly looking forward to new stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ted Nugent - When he was good!, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
Ted Nugent may be a gun totin', raw steak munchin' right wing loon parody of himself these days, given to provocative/offensive outbursts that get more headlines and are probably more interesting than any music he's made in thirty odd years but there's no doubting that the man in his gonzo prime was churning out some fantastic, classic American hard rock as evinced by this excellent value-for-money box set of 5 albums.

There's some genius party riffin spread across these albums and some fantastic, subtle even (not a word readily associated with The Nuge these days) guitar playing, especially on the "Ted Nugent" album which is up there with the Van Halen debut and Montrose first as a classic US rock album of it's time.

If you have a love for quality riffage and can overlook that the man's a birrova tool (If I had a record collection based on whether the artist was a nice person or not, I don't think I'd have many albums!), then this set offers a great value set of hard rock joy.

I'm just waiting for Ted to form a band with Morrissey - another fave that seems sadly reduced to clueless headline grabbing outbursts of misanthropy these days - and call it Veggie Burger. It must happen!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Glowpeople "Things..." album, 17 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Things... (Audio CD)
This is the debut release by up n' coming festy band Glowpeople, comprised of , it seems, various musicians in and around the Shropshire area (UK).
Having being privy to some of this music in earlier, more tentative try-out formats (courtesy of drummer Nick), it's a real pleasure to hear everything come together in such a sonically satisfying way. There are a myriad of influences to be heard but the predominant vibe is of a jazzy, mellow kind of improv-generated space-rock so beloved of festival goers and groovers. Certainly, if you fancy a dose of Ozricsesque, chilled out meanderings with your cuppa chai, you could do a lot worse than indulge in this album. Between twisty bass-burblings and trumpet textures, organic percussion with dreamy guitar and keyboard flourishes complete with samples n sound-bites, this is a very pleasant way to spend some brain massage-time in your podule. Enjoy!
