Into Your Mind
Label: Small Stone Records Co.
This Virginia stoner trio sounds increasingly addicted to early Sabbath, even if the incessantly repetitive multi-measure riff patterns don't quite cohere as automatically as on 2011's Holding On. T.R. Morton sure loves warbling those high Ozzy-esque "oh yeah!"s and "w'allright"s, though. And from "Blood Red Sky"'s wah-wah to "Lost in Space"'s blastoff whoosh to "Waterfall"'s skippity paradiddles to the title cut's deep Danzig drawl, they find ways to vary the plod. By "The Line" they get an almost summery jazz vibe going, and some right tasty guitar soloing near album's end, too.
