Sasquatch : II

With their second album, Sasquatch has produced a superb platter of unapologetic, ass-kicking desert rock. This monstrous power trio - foul-talkin', booze-swiggin', and mota-smokin' - cares not one whit for fashion. Instead they've chosen to concentrate on their chosen sound; taking the strong points of the first album and amplifying them through a bank of tube amps, yielding a distilled stoner brew that'll kick you before AND after you're down. Their first album was a keeper, but this one is essential.

Thanks to their superior songwriting, the album flows beautifully, going coherently from strength to strength. The vocals are clean, melodic, and passionate, the leads sharp, and the rhythm section propulsive. Of course the pluses we associate with desert rock - groove, passion, melody and tone, tone, tone - are all much in evidence. And the quieter tunes are just as good as the rest!

There's no point in dissecting the album, or calling out the best tunes. This is sweet, fuzzed out, desert perfection. Put it in your CD player, and press the pedal to the metal.
