CD Reviews

Monument to downer heavy proto-metal!
T. Hardin | seaside,oregon | 08/11/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"So what exactly are you in for,you may be wondering? Totally obscure and rarer than hen's teeth, for points of reference think Deep Purple (love that organ!), Uriah Heep,Black Sabbath,etc.just not as original or adept at songwriting.The vocals are somewhat echoey,kinda like a combination of Jim Morrison & Iggy Pop(!).The tunes are pretty decent,nothing as strong as the aforementioned bands but this isnt bad! I've read elsewhere about this being a "Prog" band,and though they do deviate a bit from the standard blues-rock of the day,to call this Prog would be a stretch.That is not criticism mind you,just dont go in expecting EL&P! If (like me) your musical obsessions lean towards the heavier proto-metal hard rock acts of the 70's,and judging by the dearth of mediocre releases copping that sound their are lots of you,then add a star and consider this well worth your time tracking down! Though I wouldnt go so far as to call it "essential", my collection feels a lot more complete with it.Monument indeed."
