The Liner/Sleeve Notes:
Basically, once more it’s another band I know nothing about – but either liked the cover, or in this case, liked the cover and the title track. So here we go!
The A-Side is “In Dahmer’s Room” – and it’s pretty basic hard rock, really loud guitar, bass and drums, and minimal vocals – when the vocals do come – they’re almost shouted, but not. It’s an okay track, I can’t say it’s something I’d listen to again and again, once in a blue moon maybe? What is up with this moaning? Well, the moaning turns into some screaming and more heavy guitar playing. Well, after the moaning and screaming the song is becoming more tolerable. All in all, not overly awful or anything. That song ending though is quite amazing. I actually love it. Quite like ambient music, with a slight hissing. Oh, there is some very faint talking going on…
The B-Side is a cover of Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” and the opening has some pretty nice guitar playing on it – and well, the song is done well, I think I may or may not prefer Neil Young’s version, though this version is pretty cool too, I really don’t think there is much to complain about with this track. The singer has some pretty interesting vocals, kind of raspy, but deep – I definitely want to hear more by these guys.
