Album Of The Day-The Mushroom River Band-"Simsalabim" (2002)

The Album Of The Day is "Simsalabim" by The Mushroom River Band.


"Stoned again wearing shoes made of concrete, The Mushroom River Band stomp all over the burgeoning Scando stoner scene like God-f**king-zilla himself. The follow-up to 2000's excellent 'Music For The World Beyond', this sky high, spectacularly well-produced opus does not disappoint, spinning doom rock, fuzz metal and a '70s vibe into one glorious stew.Roaring vocals from Spice (better known as the Spiritual Beggars' frontman) and monstrous riffs from Anders Linusson make 'Tree of No Hope' and 'Make It Happen' thunder and bleed. The Band don't bother with slow songs, simply hot-rodding forward in clouds of diesel and dirt. This is about as good as classic stoner fare gets, so we might as well worship their big, sick machine before it speeds away. KKKK (out of 5)" (Kerrang!)
