Although I can’t categorize this album as a masterpiece, Abominable has a great deal of qualities. True to the stoner rock intuition, and vehemently faithful to the loyalty of its sentimental soul – but carefully developing the axiomatic genesis of its own style –, Telekinetic Yeti has created a fascinating album, that has on the horizontal axis of the meticulous nature of their melodies the imponderable creativity that displays the fluidity of a gregarious expansion of vigorous rhythms throughout the sonorous universe of their formidable musicality. With relaxed, calm and serene – sometimes almost dragged – melodies, predominantly assuming the embryonic elements of their musical cosmogony, Abominable has revealed itself to be an astonishing work, spiritually sidelined by comprehensively eccentric harmonies and a sensorial taste for vagueness. Nevertheless, despite the complacent slowness of the rhythms, more than usually expected, the record is considerably interesting, and, unlike several other albums of this particular genre of music, the traces of monotony are scarce and inexistent for the most part.
Don’t get me wrong: there is nothing on this album that you haven’t heard before in a hundred other albums of the genre, especially if you are a stoner rock veteran or enthusiast. But Abominable manages to have abundantly all the necessary elements to be considered a good album for the category, since each and every one of them are spectacularly worked in the highest standards possible. These are fairly competent, talented and skilled musicians. But sooner or later you reach the inevitable conclusion that, in the end, this is just another stoner rock album.
Highly recommendable, although there is a virtual absence of surprising elements, the wrong components are almost absent either. Abominable manages to be a very outstanding, efficient, lucid, sober and vigorous stoner rock album. While there are literally no innovations, Telekinetic Yeti displays a certain degree of authenticity, with full credibility for not sounding generic or repetitive. The duo reveals itself to be a splendid musical act, capable of developing its own style, but maintaining the shapes and lines of stoner rock, without deforming or distorting the genre.
