Track by Track Review
This non-CD track rules with rhythm and power (surprise surprise). No limits to the thick and awesome energy of this nearly fanatical raver. A fine melody line and spectacular energy, with lots of reverb magic.
"Crunch" is one mean surf tune. It's riff is friendly and in the pocket. The heavy compressed delivery is perfect for the melody. It may be mostly a riff, but it darn well grooves.
Surf riffology dripped over an open garage door in the rain, thick and mean, with a lumbering break and strong drum work. Shreddin' hard, eating sand for the pleasure.
This semi slow original sports a riff like the Meteors might write. It's smooth and powerful, and employs thundering toms. The ringing guitar tone is enticing and dangerous. Shallow whammy hints of watery thoughts while cruisin' along the coastline. Thick and warm, brooding and foreboding.
