Customer Review

on 16 September 2009
It came out now ten years ago but sounds still fab today. There are some beautiful adventurous sounds contained herein. DOTR singer Paul Vickers sounds like a cross between Liam Gallagher, Mick Jagger & Richard Ashcroft while the rest of the quintet Grant Pringle (drums), Mike Small (guitars), Donald Kyle (bass), & Roger Simian (guitar) creates a beautiful backdrop of melodic noise. Best tracks are 'Love Is A Curse' which is much like Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'; 'Sub Erotic Fields' shuffling - reminds of The Moles 1967 slab of psych 'We Are The Moles'...solid & stupendous & brilliant "And everything falls into the stream"; 'Science Fiction Freak' is a captivating slow relentless glide through the galaxy of exploding emotions; 'Big Hefty Hounds' is pure 60's psych; there are some sensitive moments like the opening gambit of violins on 'Get A Bright Flame' - compelling; 'Hand Relief' with one of the more clever lyrics "She lives in Alice Springs and collects things like boy friends" and a blues influence via harmonica; final number is the long 'Fearless Vampire Hunters' which slowly builds up into a freak out which never really ignites. There are also aspects here that remind of Kaleidoscope and Pretty Things circa 67/68 - though DOTR may never have even heard of these bands!?! In any case Dawn Of The Replicants are coming up with new and refreshing sounds - obviously not from this planet - but let's go there (hell bent) - well in this case ten years late. Quite brilliant.
