EDITORS’ NOTES

Gone Is Gone count members of Mastodon, Queens of the Stone Age, and At the Drive-In among their ranks, and these gentlemen realize they're not exactly going to out-aggro their day jobs here. While "Gift" and "Ornament" bring the hot riffs, the most striking moments on their debut are atmospheric ballads such as "Dublin" and "Colourfade," which set aside the thrash to find Mastodon’s Troy Sanders offering up clean, seductive vocals atop reverb-smeared guitars.

Great

Nothing really impressive here

Rock Connoisseur

Not bad by any means but it's not something that really stands out either. You would expect more from a supergroup featuring the likes of Troy Sanders, Troy Van Leeuwen and Tony Hajiar but the result is just an average-at-best stoner rock album that might be an alright listen for 50 minutes or so of novelty but is otherwise easily forgettable.

So-so.

I was excited to hear what they would come up with after their first album that I still listen to quite frequently.
Unfortunately, this is pretty boring. It's not a bad album, but it's not very interesting in any way. Maybe if I was tripping on acid and/or really stoned I could appreciate it more, but being stone cold sober ( sigh ) it's very forgettable.

About Gone Is Gone

Gone Is Gone is an atmosphere-driven, heavy rock quartet built around the talents of At the Drive-In drummer Tony Hajjar, multi-instrumentalist and composer Mike Zarin, Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, and Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders. Founded in 2016, the group issued an eponymous EP in July, with its debut long-player, Echolocation, dropping in early 2017. Both releases were issued via Rise Records. ~ James Christopher Monger
