If you like your classic seventies rock and think you have the best of the period covered with your Led Zep, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple records, think again. If you dig a little deeper and peek under a few stones there’s treasures there that will blow your brain. Captain Beyond may never have achieved the commercial success of the era’s monsters of rock but their debut album is artistically up their with the greats.
The whole album just buzzes with genius, classic riffs, jaw-dropping drumming and rhythmic percussion and brilliant songs. Stoner rock greats Monster Magnet covered ‘Memorization Eclipse’ and re-invented it for their ‘Twin Earth’ single, exposing the band to a whole new generation of rock freaks. And what’s good enough for Monster Magnet, is good enough for us.
