Finally! after over 2 years of waiting, a new C.O.C.
album, new songs in a kickass stoner-metal style that only one band
can deliver. I filled up my bong, got out my sacred C.O.C./Jagermeister
lighter and prepared to have my head filled with truly cool shit.
Three songs into this album I told myself, ok..."maybe the
first 3 are just a warm-up for the real heavy/sludge/pounding metal."
*sigh* This C.O.C. album is different from the last 2, it's...lighter.
The songs themselves are like nothing I've heard this band do, which
is good in a sense, but it's taken a few listens to get used to. The
album itself is catchy as hell, but gone are the almighty riffs, the
heavy melodic intertwining between Pepper and Woody, and the slaming
crunch. The last song "Gittin' It On" shows a bit of promise if you
ignore the drum sound on the album, but still sounds a little too
happy like the others. There's something wrong with
the mix, the effects, and the overall sounds...Custer
got killer sounds on the last 3 C.O.C. albums..what
went wrong here?!?!?!
Pepper is singing, but who's that band behind him? I donno, it's
grown on me, but the production still sounds a bit
like watered down beer...
