Synopsis

Amazon.com
Detroit-based quartet Outrageous Cherry doubtless fancy themselves throwbacks to the psychedelic motherlode of the 1960s; the title of The Book of Spectral Projections is only the most obvious instance of this record's minute attention to period detail. However, something about it doesn't ring entirely true and Outrageous Cherry, rather than evoking the pioneering narcosis of prime Velvet Underground, instead call to mind the shoegazers of early-?90s Britain, those bands, like Chapterhouse, Slowdive, and the Charlatans UK, who thought rock & roll had begun with the first Stone Roses album. Within those parameters, Outrageous Cherry stumble upon the occasional luridly pretty moment but there remains a gulf, probably unbridgeable, between the kind of band Outrageous Cherry think they are and the band Outrageous Cherry sound like here. --Andrew Mueller

In addition, this album seems more sonically adventurous than the others I sampled. Rock out..."
