Lords of Fuzz
On their self-titled LP, the Lords deliver a potent, sludgy blend of heavy, super-fuzzy riffs, a thundering rhythm section with just a hint of swing and throaty, passionate vocals that fall somewhere between Alice in Chains and Stone Temple Pilots. It's a sound that would have been huge fifteen years ago in the heyday of grunge; 25 years ago, it would have been hailed as visionary. Today it's a solid, comfortable album with a few standout tracks (the instrumental "Anthem," "Rattlesnakes") that makes me long for the days of smoking ditchweed and growing my hair long. Ain't nothing wrong with that, and if you have the same past — or maybe that's your present — Lords of Fuzz are definitely worth a listen.
