Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-07-31
Perfect melding of 70’s epic metal with 90’s garage and stoner rock. As if Nebula and Fu Manchu had sex with The Mono Men and named the baby Ledozzy Nugent.. Male vocals (that smack of Ozzy now and then) with rich distorted guitars (what tube amps were meant for), no wanking for wank-sake but definitely some guitar posturing here and there, making up for the absence of bass (c’mon guys, that’s so mid 90’s…). Really great stuff. Pick any track, they all hit that sweet spot.

1) full on smarmy cool swagger, guitar posturing
2) more of a steady head nodding beat
3) somehow a warm and familiar mid/up paced rock feel based around a simple guitar riff, epic break and half time bridge with keys
4) tribal rock beat, shifts to a double time pace about midway and screams its way out
5) mathy beat, confusing at first but comes back into a simple ¾ swing
6) epic wanky guitar intro then a simple bluesy rock riffage mid paced
