The Hidden Hand's 2nd album offers up the same badass riffs you'd come to expect from this band after their debut. But this one is a bit trippier. Soulful vocals waft thru a smokescreen of effects, while Wino's guitar swirls around your head. Songs to check out: "Draco Vibration", (which is the shiznit) "Travesty As Usual", "Sons Of Kings", and "The Deprograming Of Tom Delay" is wonderful spacey noise. If only someone could capture the heaviness of this band live, on an album.
