CORMANS, THEE:
Halloween Record w/ Sound Effects: LP
The package was so remarkable that I was hoping for something that was not to be. Wacky throwback ‘60s cover art? Realistic magazine-styled advertisements for the insert? In the Red Recordings? Is this one of the newest of the current crop of rock’n’roll purists like Hunx And His Punx and Shannon And The Clams to explore the territory of musical ages long since passed? Well, yes and no. It’s a throwback record all right, but it’s more interested in Dick Dale than the Kinks. I’ll be the first to admit that an instrumental album doesn’t sound appealing most of the time. (Or ever, really. I don’t like them at all.) And I’ll also be the first to admit that I think anything can be done well. As an album of atmosphere, this is really good. I can’t help but be amazed at the album as a whole. There’s a part of me deep down that really loves concept albums and this one works so fluidly between sound effects and songs that I was surprised to find myself feeling uncomfortable during a few points in the record. All signs point to this album being high art. A concept followed to the final step made with love and passion for an unsung hero of media. –Bryan Static (In The Red, intheredrecords.com)
