Album Of The Day-The Mystick Krewe of Clearlight-"The Mystick Krewe of Clearlight" (2000)

The Album Of The Day is "The Mystick Krewe of Clearlight" by The Mystick Krewe of Clearlight.

With its combination of Black Sabbath's dirgy riffing, Deep Purple's organ flourishes, and absolutely no vocals (!), the Mystick Krewe of Clearlight is a peculiar side project featuring members of Southern sludge rockers EyeHateGod, Crowbar, and Down. It is also undoubtedly one with limited commercial appeal, as the extended instrumental jams on the band's eponymous album will certainly prove a major stumbling block for less open-minded listeners. Forget the short bursts preferred by similar all-instrumental retro-rock combos like Karma to Burn. The Mystick Krewe likes to stretch, and without the commercial trappings imposed by lyrical conventions, its music is free to soar uninhibited for seven, eight, sometimes eighteen minutes. In fact, compulsive head nodding is guaranteed to ensue during standout cuts like "Electrode," "Trapeze," and "El Nino Brown." An interesting journey. (Ed Rivadavia, All Music Guide)
