The album begins with 'Hair Of The Dog' which immediately confirms my premonition. This opener is a straightforward stoner rock song with some minor psychedelic influences. It fits the artwork perfectly, and so do the rough, grinding vocals. 'Stressknots' takes on a fuzzed out blues sounds, definitely throwing this band into the Desert/Roadburn/Fuzzfest scenes. This stuff is hot, it just my living room a lot hotter than it already is. Even typing this review makes me sweat like a pig. Hurray.
Anyway. It's not all stoner and fuzz and groove. There are some long psychedelic and cosmic jams to be found here too. The title track is the first one and it comes in perfect space rock tradition. It drives on an immersive bass line and freely jamming guitars. Obviously, this adds a lot of variation to the whole thing. In all honesty, I think this lingering beauty is my absolute favorites on this album. I wouldn't even be upset if Geezer's next album contains only this kind of stuff. I'd glorify them even more.
Or how about 'Red Hook', a minimal psychedelic ballad that in some bizarre way reminds be of R.E.M.'s 'Drive', played by Johnny Cash in the middle of a remote desert. Is that a compliment? I don't know. Maybe the heat is getting to me. The album closes with the massively groovy vintage hard rock song 'Dirty Penny', which also contains an awesome elongated jam session. Oh well. you'll guessed it by now. This is an excellent piece of modern day psych rock, one that you don't want to ignore if you're into this stuff.
