CD Reviews

Finally! A good modern instrumental surf album
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Too many of these modern instrumental surf acts try so hard to put a spin on their music that their music ends up suffering under the weight of their particular spin. Man or Astroman have some great tunes, but it's hard to hear them through the electronic noise and junk. The Blue Hawaiians made one good album ("Sway") and have sunk into a lounge-band hell lately. The Halibuts are the only guys with the guts to play instrumental surf music straight and to take their chances. There's no hypenization here: no "lounge-surf" or "electronic-surf" or the like. Just surf. And, much like the great surf LP's of yesteryear, the songs are only as good as their melodies and performances. Thankfully, the Halibuts uncork one great melody and performance after another. "Hammerhead," "Caldera," and the rest are fantastic songs. The Halibuts don't ape the old surf songs like Los Straitjackets do--they create new surf songs that are just as compelling and original as the best of their predecessors."
Fun, Entertaining, & Original

"The girl who reviewed this last really summed it up. I wanted to review it right after I received it, but I decided it would be better to wait and see if it lasted. I have had it for about 6-7 months now...and its still great! I love it. Get it!"
