Phoenix

By The Warlocks

The best way I can describe this album, is that it drifts over you rather you actually paying it attention. For 60 hazy minutes, 2 drummers, blues guitar, the odd harmonica, magical tambourine and the rest of the shebang "drift" in glorious space-rock. 2 minute pop songs, this ain't, but the beauty of the 2 openers - "Shake The Dope Out" and single "Hurricane Heart Attack" as psycadelic song-writery is magnificent.

Early Spiritualized (Pure Phase especially), and John Cale experimental drone rockery is the way forward and this band do it the best since the early 90s. You'll be hard pushed to find any moments that stand-out from the musical cloud of marijuana smoke, but hey, ain't that the point? All I'll say is you'll pinch yourself everytime the tambourine is joined by that second drum kit.
