ATLAS SOUND Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel CD

EARTH The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull CD
*** "Where 'Hex' reveled in dark satanic twang and austere american beauty, "The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull" finds Dylan Carlson and the band growing into a harder, more rock, american Gospel and impovisitory direction framed by truly psychedelic production and blazing guitar sounds. BILL FRISELL appears on a few tracks, providing brilliant textures and counterpoint to the scintillating and inspired riffs of Dylan Carlson and the band. Steve Moore also returns adding heavy hammond organ and his intense jazz inspired piano playing."

*** Powerhouses, I'll tell you what. These guys, that is.
