Not a fan either. They are one of only a handful of traditional rock bands still out there fighting the good fight and this thing is a mess. Very disappointed. If I was Taylor Hawkins I would take a break from Dave Grohl for a time and pull the trigger on the rumored hook up with the remaining guys from Rush and take an act out on the road under a new name playing Rush tunes.

Black/Death Metal

This was a bit strange and really not sure if Black/Death Metal covers it but that is what they call it so be it. Unfortunately I only liked 1 of the 5 tracks on the album but it was interestingly weird enough for me to listen to all of it.

Acid Mammoth - Caravan (2021)

My Ratings: 79.930
Rank: 233 (out of 2040)

Best Song: Psychedelic Wasteland [84.0]

Doom Metal/Stoner Rock

Solid album though falls short of last years great album but found it better than their debut. Should be in my top for 2021 list...


"It is a witchy album for witchy ears, a heavy opus that has emerged straight from the deepest abyss.
Once again the father and son duo on guitars offer the listener a horde of crushing, fuzzy, Iommi riffs while the mammoth bass tears down everything in its path with its acid hooves. Its drums are thundering unearthly beats of harrowing doom while its mesmerizing vocals will bewitch you with their words of woe. Heavier and more diverse than its predecessor, “Caravan” is here to tear you down with its acid tusks. Prepare to be doomed!!! " ... bandcamp

Best Song: Pistol Star [77.2]

Alternative Metal

It has been awhile since I have listened to Chevelle. Saw them a couple of times when they first started out and they were very raw sounding. This new album surprisingly to me sounds much like the older stuff which is a good thing. This one sounded pretty good.

Best Song: With or Without You [90.0]

Rock

For some reason I did not check this album out when I did the year 1987, maybe I was unable to hear it... who knows but man the first side of this one is great but the 2nd side was a huge drop off for me. Still a solid album.
