Move the fuck over The Darkness and welcome the future of psychedelic rock. These three-piece Aussie rockers are about to take the world by storm. Blending a bit of Sabbath, Deep Purple and a scoop of Zeppelin these guys smash your senses with a live act and album that you need to sell your sister's ass to get to.

One of Triple J’s (independent radio station here in OZ) nominated Albums of the Year, if they take it out will be up there with other notables Silverchair, Grinspoon and Jet.

Whilst arriving on the scene over a year ago, it is fantastic to see that the boys have waited until the album was faultless before releasing it. Rock power chords, falsettos and psychedelic sound fuck everything since the glory days of the genre hit our radios.

Starting with Colossal, the band rips into the jam funk with massive bass lines, which blow your mind and your speakers. Thundering drums, sublime bass licks and Andrew Stockdale’s vocal holler make this THE rock album of 2005.

The songs will not require any deep analysis or thought, they come at you straight up quicker then you can say Lyijykomppania. I have been lucky enough to see them live, and in honesty you lose nothing on this purchase.

If there was a downfall to the album or the band it would be that they are going to need a Page or Blackmore to really be up there with the all time greats, but time will tell. Maybe the short attention span of our generation will work in their favour.

I think their attitude sums up the album when they say, “Everything was directed toward capturing "the perfect feeling" rather than "faultless performance”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. This album is perfect.

Additional Note: These guys also seem to throw in some Soundgarden fuzz along with the retro-riffs. Killer stoner CD! --Nailer

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise 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.
