Track by Track Review
George Bedard thinks of surf as a poundy dribbly melodic vehicle for guitar flash, and he's right on the mark here. His performance is hot, and the glissandoes dribble like machine gun pellets into a pool of water, pummeling the surroundings with nature's drool. A fiery performance, a solid trad arrangement with added flair and big tom tom oomph. The drum-guitar synchronization in the glissandoes adds a unique power, and their choice to repeat them for emphasis and drama is not only effective, but powerful. A mighty fine track.
