Saint Vitus : V



I believe that reviewers should be up-front about their biases, don't you? To that end, I have to mention that I'm a stone(d) Wino fanatic. So it will be no surprise that I view Saint Vitus' 'V' as one of their very best albums, since Wino takes front and center as the vocalist. Dave Chandler provides his inimitable guitar buzz and songwriting abilities, and stalwarts Mark Adams (bass) and Armando Acosta (drums) provide rhythm.

This album brings forth one old-school doom classic after another: the kick-ass 'Living Backwards', the slow, doomy 'Jack Frost', the psychedelic 'Mind Food', they just keep comin'! The only sour note in my opinion, is Dave Chandler's short spoken-word tune 'When Emotion Dies'. The paired female background vocals sound incongruous with the rest of the album. But the subject matter does not; indeed the record is a testament to social alienation, confession, and doom, doom, doom!!

If you long for strong emotional content, then the songwriting and Wino's soulful vocals will fill the bill. Track 'V' down and discover one of the old school's most successful records!
