Definitely Cool!

"While I would not cite them as one of my favorite of the classic surf bands, I enjoy The Revels because they have a raw sound packed with partying and playfulness. Make no mistake, these guys' tunes would be easy to identify if there were to be a mass surf band reunion; they stay away from the melodic, but pump enough sheer energy from their instruments to put a personalized stamp on each track.Based upon listening to this CD twice, I get the notion these guys played hard, but at the same gtime, played fun. The occasional background and introduction vocals & chuckles (probably best recognized in "Church Key") make this album all the more enjoyable.If there is any criticism I have of The Revels, it is that the tunes begin to sound repetitious by the end of the CD. That is more of a personal call on my part; I know plenty of people who thrive on listening to steady rhythms, be it jazz or heavy metal or surf guitar. I'm a bit of a sucker for melodies!That said, this is another great release by Sundazed. I highly recommend any release by Sundazed, as the CDs are accompanied by great liner notes that cover the history of each band, memories of the band members, and great back page stories. Sundazed is fantastic!"

"Intoxica is a fun cd to listen to. The Revels were pretty much a pre-surf surf rock group. The band was doing it's thing before the surf craze of the early 60s caught on, but when you listen to it, you'll hear hints of what was to become surf rock as we know it. So be forwarned if you buy this expecting the Revels to sound like The Surfaris. This was a great time in rock history, coz bands could make a career out of being an instrumental group, and people loved it. You won't see this kinda thing happening today in mainstream music. In fact, if you've seen Pulp Fiction, you might remember them. Remember that rather unpleasant scene with Ving Rhames where Bruce Willis takes out those guys with a samurai sword? That peppy tune with the nasty sax? If you happen to remember that, then you've got a good idea of how the Revels sound. It's boss!"

"The Revels' collection is great musical history; musically it's a bit thin. In any case the group sounds like it's having a great time. That's worth something."
