Customer Review

on 26 January 2008
I can't stop listening to this album to be quite honest. Black Mountain are a band that manage to give direct nods to great old bands and artists such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Neil Young and The Velvet Underground without ever sounding like a pale imitation (Wolfmother/The Darkness). They actually sound very fresh and new. The album contains a wonderful mixture of styles ranging from thumping hard rock and spacey progressive rock to gentle folk music. It's refreshing to see a modern band really lay down some big tremendous riffs that don't just sound like noise. Organs, mellotrons and synthesizers drone in and out of each track creating these deep sonic atmospheres that are really quite wonderful to listen to and experience. They are also not afraid of asking for a little patience and attention from the listener too - the epic track, Bright Lights, goes on for over sixteen minutes! There is not one dull track on this album, the arrangements and musicianship displayed in each song is quite masterful. If you're a fan of early seventies rock music and looking for something new I suggest you buy it.
