Red Krayola - 'Hazel' (Drag City)
Mike Reed | USA | 04/02/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Reason I'm giving this later day Red Krayola (1996)release a four star rating, is because it grew on me within the first two times I played it. I mean, I was almost sure that 'Hazel' would indeed suck rocks, glad to see that I was totally wrong. One thing I'll give Red Krayola mastermind Mayo Thompson is the man had most certainly, virtually created his 'own' brand of music. True, 'Hazel' is quite experimental. Perhaps too much so for most. But, at least it's got a purpose. Tracks I dug the most were "I'm So Blase", the avant garde "Duke Of Newcastle", "Decaf The Planet" (reminds me of Daevid Allen), "GOA", the one-minute snippet "Hollywood" and "Father Abraham". Give this one a try."
Good, almost great

"i had only heard other red krayola albums that were older, and was thus a lttle bit nervous as to this one. however, knowing that the drummer from tortoise was on this album i picked it up. seems to be a good blend of earlier thompson work, mostly his solo album, a bit more structured early red krayola, and of course that chicago thrill jockey scene, good, and i type that nodding heavily is the best recommendation i would give. thompson has still got it, in his own ver unique way."
