Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a
qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being
technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.
Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent
broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big
financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually
adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to
keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band,
label, management, promoter, etc.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
Morphine Social Club
Heavy fuzz on a mid-paced rhythm
Hard to believe this band is from Greece. Morphine Social Club are this wacky psychedelic band that shows off late 60s and early 70s lyrical influences. Musically, it's heavy fuzz on a mid-paced rhythm. It has plenty of room to breathe, giving attention to up front bass licks and spaced out percussion. "Starship of Perception" is experimental, a slow burn of atmosphere while cranking the stoner vibe high. "Your Sun Is So Toxic" is heavy distortion, an interesting closing instrumental. I'd be curious to hear a full-length.
