Baz - Side A: Rockin' Tracks

1. Choral singing, synth keyboard, beats & drums, jangling guitar, pompous electric guitar all led by a driving voice which has been brazenly adopted by Americas self-styled Anti-Christ. An epic “Goth” classic & quite an opener.
2. US Punk style sounding band do a cover by numbers of a decent (if overly lauded) pop song. Ok.
3. Explosive blues punk rock which at its roots owes a lot to Motorhead, MC5 & The Stooges. Reminded me a bit of Primal Screams punk rock work in their Exterminator & Evil Heat records. Vocals are weak, particularly the backing, but I enjoyed this.
4. Great band on a great album with a stonking raw track demonstrating this bands process of creating songs through simple pure jamming.
It was also accompanied by my good lady stating her admiration for the act in her own special way...
People who don’t like this band can go fuck themselves.
Who am I to argue?
5. Critically acclaimed slice of indie dance art rock from a band who despite their name never seemed to surface for air again. I wasn’t a massive fan at the time but mildly enjoyed this listen.
6. Good little pop metal tune. Even though it clearly isn’t Andy Cairns singing I honestly thought this was Therapy? for a moment until I twigged on to who it was.
The track ends with a little epilogue of guitar echoes, & haunting chilled sounds which lead into the second section of the disc….

Side B: Chillin' Tracks

7. A classic cut of Trip-Hop from pioneers of the genre.
8. Beautifully layered synth is the key in this electronic chill track. Really nice work.
9. A great house number to stick on return from a club, just lively enough to keep the mood flowing & just chilled enough to begin to bring things to a sitting standstill. I like.
10. I Like the act but I just never warmed to this chill out favourite, elements of the dub synth are great but the vocal sample grates & the trumpet just sullies the good name of jazz.
11. A brooding synth track that grows as the song goes on with vocals entering at the halfway mark describing some kind of feeling of an epiphany. I don’t know why, but it all sounded very German to me & little over earnest musically & lyrically. I can see it’s merits but just not my cup of tea.
12. Great beats, twisted sounds, echoes & drones. Good track.

This was a good solid mix that I enjoyed for the most part. Nice. 7/10

A track list would be most appreciated Baz.
