Album Review

Reviewed 2003-04-11 
Spacey, droning and slow, but it still rocks out. Mostly instrumental music with guitar, drums and synth sounds. Songs tend to start off slow and droning and then break into something roaring and full out rocking. The band members formed Seattle based Kinski after debating analog vs. digital recording. Analog won. This album is great.

1) Steve’s Basement : Starts off with synthesized ambient sound for 3 minutes. Guitar cuts in and brings up the energy of the song. Another minute later the song breaks into a higher energy droning guitar and drums sound. (9:54)
**2) Semaphone : Repetitive guitar interlaced with eerie synth sounds. Breaks out of that sound in the middle. Guitar rifts and full drumming. (6:06)
3) Rhode Island Freakout : Experimental pop song. Starts with a train like sound. Breaks into distorted guitar with stripped down fem vocals. Maybe even catchy. Ends with a train sound(?). (3:56)
**4) Schedule for Using Pillows and Beanbags : Starts off with a delicate emo sounding guitar line that hardens into a repeating guitar riff and rocking out drums. (11:36)
5) I Think I Blew It : Droning guitar and synth sounds weaving into each other. This one stays pretty much the same throughout. (7:59)
**6) Your Lights Are (Out or) Burning Badly : soft delicate guitar plays mostly alone for more than half the song. A roaring guitar and full on drums break in and play along with the delicate riff. (8:43)
7) Waves of Second Guessing : Wavey synth sounds. Delicate guitar riffs are added to these sounds. About 5 minutes in the sound breaks to another heavy rocking finale. (8:22)
8) I Think I Blew It (Again) : Light as air guitar and synth sounds. (2:57)
