5.0 out of 5 stars PROG ORCHESTRATED PERFECTION!, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Defying Unicorn (Audio CD)
I'd never heard Motorpsycho about a month ago but now this album is becoming a firm favourite. I can't stop listening to it. The amalgamation of prog-metal and orchestra is seamless, creating a soundtrack to the fantastic story that accompanies the diverse sounds on offer. Don't expect a Deep Purple, Metallica type affair here where normal metal tracks are shoe-horned into orchestrated pieces; this is unforced and natural sounding and completely surreal in a King Crimson style at times. It took a few turns of the stylus to eventually 'get' the album but then it hit me like a steam train. There is a strong bass sound throughout the album which lays a mesmerising groove that gets into your head.
This is a very jazzy album meaning this is no easy listen but if you stick with it you'll be heavily rewarded. There are times when the music is atonal (thanks Hemi, other reviewer) but this is the soundtrack nature of the album, laying a feel and an atmosphere. Background music this ain't!
