Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-10-26 
Strong dose of 70's head noddin rockin crossed with funky synths. Like Grand Funk crossed with early Stevie Wonder. Moments of prog, noodle guitars too. Stonerness of a Nebula, prog of Trans Am, electro funk of Pepe Deluxe. Everything sounds like it should have a cowbell.

1) (0:50) funky electro spy show intro
2) (3:55) head noddin rock
3)* (2:37) kinda noodley guitar hooks and tribal rhythm
4) (3:46) heavy rocker
5) (5:27) mellower parts w "mystical" lyrics, bluesy swing
6) (2:23) synth based sinister rock, reminds me of Trans Am
7) (2:45) the funk ratchets up, synth w mild female backups
8) (2:43) full on gallop out the gate then turns crunchy stoner metal prog w Rush synth (are those Taurus Pedals?)
9) (4:15) big heavy rock, slow head nodder with a horn section near the end!!
10) (3:57) this is super cheesy rock in the vocals despite the "rock"
11) (4:13) basic good Stoney rockin, no synths or tricks
12) (2:37) acoustic guitar finger playing, simple ditty with a kotke/Atkins feel, bass and percussion joins midway
13) (3:15) devil horns up riff rock w cheesy verses
14) (3:31) slower doomier tone and dark feel
15) (3:57) 12 bar rock, minor riffy, slow, then stops and they redo the song in full on Lynyrd Skyrnrd upbeat southern blues
