"Awesome debut mini-album from 2 ex-members of acclaimed stoner rockers (I hate that name, so from here on out, I will not use the genre term) Fu Manchu.The fuzzed-out swirling and furious guitars of Eddie Glass are most prevalent here, making every track almost too enjoyable to listen to! There ain't a bad tune in the bunch (though my copy doesn't have the extra tracks), and "Down the Highway" and "Let it Burn" are the biggest and baddest of the 6 contained here. Also of particular note is "Elevation," which is a completely rocking opener. Eddie also takes on the vocal chores here, and unlike other reviewers, I like 'em. Hill from the abovementioned Manchu'ers he ain't, but that's ok. Nebula has carved out their own little niche in this growing retro-rock genre, and this is merely the starting point for it.The only downpoint for me, and the reason this is 4, not 5 stars, is the way too long Zeppelin ripoff "Raga in the Bloodshot Pyramid." It's cool for about 90 seconds, then it's 4 minutes too long. Eh, 5 out of 6 ain't bad at all.If you dig this album (like I do), go get charged. Nebula becomes immaculate."

"Nebula are simply the BEST new band I've heard in years! After leaving FU MANCHU, these guys prove that they can write, play & blow minds way better than their former employer. Every track on this cd ( with the exception on the Middle-Eastern styles of " Raga") knocks me . . . EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO IT! I just can't get enough. Go see them live, too. They are the HEAVIEST 3 piece this side of the Mississippi. Be sure to get Every title by these guys, too, because they are all top notch. Enjoy!"
