While listening to Destroyer, I got the feeling that I travelled back in time, in a provincial museum full of trivial, hard-rock exhibits.

Even though they’re on their 5th album, Black Mountain still seem to be uncomfortable with their sound, constantly pushing forward. It’s sad too, because the sound they DO have is pretty radical.

Give A Listen To: “Future Shade”, “Horns Arising”, “High Rise”, “Pretty Little Lazies”, “Boogie Lover”, “Licensed To Drive”

Least Favorite Track: “FD 72”

Genre: Psychedelic Rock / Stoner Rock / Space ... read more

More of the same really, a slightly more '80s synth feel at times...could I accuse this album of playing it safe?

Canadian heavy-psych group's fifth studio album takes the familiar sounds of 70's psych with their own unique take that doesn't land nor sticks. There are moments where the instrumentation shine and burn but doesn't engage as it should be. I wonder how Dan Bejar feels about this.
