2) (Let Me) Take You Home; 3) Backwoods Bear; 4) You Got to Run; 5) Son of The Morning; 6) Hombre; 7) Love You Right; 8) When the Sun Breaks; 9) Shallow Grave; a fantastic album – a truly great and wild sound whose marvelously spectacular guitar lines conceives otherworldly harmonies of imperishable and genuine resistance –, the style displayed on Bury the Hatchet is a wonderfully majestic grace of inimitable authenticity, whose astonishing qualities really master the virtues of its impeccable creative ordeal.
With an elegant savagery that seems to have been pulled out of a desert desperate to scream for some life of its own, the sound of Shotgun Sawyer is a sensible, but powerfully energetic work of art that invites the listener to dive into a sonorous paradise of truly magnificent wild rock. With guitar lines that defy the melodies of its own arrangements – unveiling a sophisticated, but also audacious fury that underlines the rhythmic dissonances of its own organic devices –, despite the fact that the song structures are generally simple, the creativity and the graceful synergy demonstrated by the band in the whole record surpasses all expectations.
Displaying also a sensational level of versatility, the general sensibility of the melodies downplayed in the peripheries of gracefully optimistic and ironic colorful atmospheres of playful easiness deeply contrasts with the more lenient and crude fatalism exposed in the lancinating melancholy of the more depressive and dense elements of the band’s sound.
All in all, the band’s sound – despite the fact that it is highly indebted to a somewhat ordinary extravagance – definitely surprises, by revitalizing with a vivacious and genuine energy the most sensational qualities of the genre. With brutal, but also highly sophisticated guitar lines that dictates the rhythm of a nicely crafted and finely sculpted musical style, Bury the Hatchet definitely can be defined as a masterfully exceptional and wonderful record, that works, arranges and exposes in a salutary cohesion full of artistic precision the most sacred virtues of stoner rock.
