Track by Track Review
This is a big chord, whammy injected, double picked surf monster. Power, style, and magnetic pizzazz all gang up on you. Not terribly melodic, but who the Hell cares. Love the super high note dribbles!
Chunky, big production, melodic in a Euro instro style, spiffy lead guitar, nice acoustic rhythm, and a very pleasing structure. Quite a nice track.
A somewhat different treatment of the Original Surfaris' classic, which some changes to the guitar lines, and an unusual sound shift between drums and guitar. The low-E double picking is strong, and the chorded break adds an interesting variation. Fine track.
