From it's guitar riffs, to the vocals, to the very raw production, A Distant Call nailed the classic rock sound. Almost all of the tracks are overall enjoyable, but a lot of them sound pretty similar, and most of the song's tempos are very close, so it does get boring at times listening to it as a full album, even if it is only a total of 34 minutes. However I did enjoy this album quite a bit, and I think it would please many other fans of classic rock.

This album is a concept album of sorts, where Maynard criticises ... read more

A messy psychedelic, electronic mix, that kimd of sounds like if Tame Impala had dementia. The opener, "Love Song to My Death", sound like weird carnival music, and is just a short instrumental intro, which seems quite unnecessary and oddly placed for a 3 track, 11 minute long EP. The next track, "Love Kontrol", is like a continuation of the opener, and is probably even less enjoyable, with it's obnoxious vocals, and what sounds like a children's choir in the background.
