Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2007-02-20
Pretty nice 60’s inspired psych-pop from New Jersey with a few standard cover songs thrown in. Overall a good effort.
(((1))) Up tempo, repetitive psych-pop.
((((2)))) Byrds-ian, jangle & twang by way of mod sounds. Sounds like it was recorded in ’66 or ’67. Guitars & vocal harmonies work well.
((3)) Flat and bland twang bordering on slow power pop.
(((4))) Mostly psych & groove with really nice female vocals.
((((5)))) Another good mix of the mod, jangle and 60’s organ sound.
((6)) Really generic ‘hip swinging’ mid-60’s rock.
(((7))) Good cover of an old Music Machine track with well-executed vocals and rockin’ guitar.
((8)) Nerdy twang & strum pop.
(((9))) Organ-laden slowish, melting melodic psych with decent female vocals.
(((10))) Sound a LOT like some lost 1967 b-side from The Who. Excellent blend of vocals, guitar and guitar.
((11)) Clean, poppy, swinging sound. A little TOO clean & redundant to work.
(((12))) Dirty white dude blues-rock.
((13)) “Doot-dooot-doo” guitars, real simple arrangement that swipes a few things from the Beatles & Monkees.
((((14)))) Hazy, swagger & twang from some unknown B-movie.
