Dozer: Call It Conspiracy

| | Comments (3)

Dozer: Call It ConspiracyCD, Molten Universe 2003

Track list: The Hills Have Eyes - Rising - Feelgood Formula - The Exit - Spirit Fury Fire - A Matter of Time - Man Made Mountain - Way to Redemption - Crimson Highway - Black Light Revolution - Glorified - Lightning Stalker

Dozer isn't tricky music. There's nothing progressive in it, or nothing too clever. Turn it to eleven, hit the bass boost and you'll be well off. This is what I would play in car stereos while driving too fast. It's got a nice stoner groove and a sturdy sound. However, as I only gave Mannhai's latest four stars, I can't give Dozer more than three. The albums are close enough to be compared and Mannhai's is better. "Call It Conspiracy" is perhaps a bit too long (12 tracks, about 50 minutes) for it's own good. Still, a good buy if you're into stoner. ***

Office Building: The Sun Hit the WaterCD, Aisti Records 2003

Track list: Flies Around the Fire - She Appeared to Me - Crystal Clear - Tomorrow Again - Keep Walking On - Defy the Laws of Reasoning - The Land of Golden Dreams - All Unwinds - The Door to the Room of Your Heart - Don't Let Me Hang On - The Road Is Long Enough - The Right to Dream

Office Building has done two excellent but little-known albums before this one. Could it be their time now? At least the album is perhaps better than ever before. Their slightly introverted attitude has opened up a bit, the songs are less complicated and easier to grasp. And good as ever! Just check "Flies Around the Fire" or "Tomorrow Again". "Don't Let Me Hang On" hangs on to their earlier material, Pekko K├Ąppi's violin brings shades of their past. There's even something for the fans of The Smiths and people who like country music. Brilliant album. *****
