The Low Frequency in Stereo, 'The Last Temptation Of...' (Gigantic Music)

6
The Last Temptation of...
Critical Mass
Label: Gigantic Music

by Jon Young

Creating good trash rock is tricky -- come on too silly or too smart and you kill the buzz. This Norwegian quartet get it just right on their breezy third album, flinging punk aggression, surf-guitar twang, new-wave angst, and psychedelic weirdness into the same tangy, overheated stew. Highlights include a hypnotic, ten-minute head trip and the giddy theme for an imaginary '70s action flick, as the caffeinated grooves make up for the relatively unformed songwriting.
