The Entrance Band, 'The Entrance Band' (Ecstatic Peace)

6
The Entrance Band
Critical Mass
Label: Ecstatic Peace

by Josh Modell

This throwbackin' threesome -- an expanded version of frontman Guy Blakeslee's subdued solo outing under the name Entrance -- kills it when they stick to the classic power-trio formula. "Grim Reaper Blues" towers like Blue Cheer, winking at stoner rock on its seven-minute journey back to the source. And a painfully sincere ode to MLK gets over via sheer psych-rock mania. But eyes drift from the prize as the disc progresses, giving up the balls-out soloing for Cure knockoffs ("You're So Fine," "Lives").
