This album is intensely both weird and cool. I own it, and listen to it over and over. It is not as good as “Gold” or “Americana,” SF59’s newer albums, but it still is extremely well-done. It has a noisy, distorted, space-rock kind of sound, like feedback-static buzz. The rocking sounds of “Blue Collar Love” and “The Dungeon” are just awesome.
I can’t describe SF59’s sound in words, you have to listen to it. It is like not very many other bands. Perhaps My Bloody Valentine or Morella’s Forest, but it is superbly unique. One of my favorite albums of all time. Jason Martin is a genius.
