3.0 out of 5 stars Diluted Potential, 23 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Voice Of Saturn (Audio CD)
This album could have been an absolute blinder, however, it has actually turned out as something less. Why? Let's review:

How does it sound? Very good really; nice crunchy production; heavy sharp guitars, all the levels are right and everything is nice and clear etc. The songs? Excellent... when there are songs there. Allow me to elaborate; this album contains 4 full songs, out of 7 tracks. The outro is a little piano piece which then goes into an extended drum piece, very nice and I have no complaints with it. The intro is a spacey reverby drone, and so is the title track. In fact, there tracks are practically identical in terms of what they actually contain; as such I felt that this was a waste. The songs that are there are all excellent, like a slowed down Mastodon/High on Fire, with occassional experimental touches i.e. piano interludes, backwards looped guitars etc. But it all works well were it should. There simply isn't enough of it.

Vocals? Very good; standard grunty sludge fare ala Earthride, High on Fire etc but fits well and nicely executed.

Lyrics? I must confess I haven't had a chance to look at the lyrics really and I have no idea what the songs are about just from listening; some of the structures appear to be very repetitive though.

Recommended? I would love to recommend this album as I feel it really should be great, however, it isn't. I still feel there is a lot of good stuff worth having a listen to here but you should probably try before you buy because I found myself a little disappointed with how thin some of the content is.
