Album Review

Dredg is one of those rare bands who truly cannot be categorized. Gavin Hayes' vocals cascade like a waterfall over a sea of scratching Latin rhythms, dulcimers, guitars in odd time signatures, and prog rock-inspired drums. Hayes shares his penchant for Bulgarian chants in "Triangle" and "Same Ol' Road." "Whoa Is Me" could provide the soundtrack to all things haunted. Whether it's a piano and strings or Cure-influenced (specifically the Cure's "Fascination Street") guitars, instruments fill the time between songs on El Cielo. They offer a respite from the monotony and the slow-fast-slow style of songwriting. In an odd moment at the end of "Whoa Is Me," a soft-spoken public radio DJ speaks of a jazz number from 1944. The full-throttle rocker "It Only Took a Day" is one of the highlights. El Cielo is unlikely to become a hit on commercial radio, but perhaps Dredg could find their niche on college stations.

The One That Got Away

Few albums grab my attention these days, as i am bathed in quality music from the net, and cds, but this definitely does. Dredg have undoubtedly a most original sound, that cleverly and unselfconciously mixes genres, to create a masterful collection of indie guitars, strong vocals, and beautiful melodies. A must, these boys deserve to be huge, and i'm glad that they aren't yet. You will not be disappointed.

El Glorious!

This is a fantastic album. My friend told me about them, and I didn't know what to expect, but as soon as I heard two songs off the album I was amazed. There is no real 'filler' songs, they all work amazingly well, and the album flows beautifully. The vocals are incredible, very haunting, and this works extremely well. The music itself is fantastic, especially on 'Sanzen' and 'Eighteen People Live In Harmony'. This is an album that I liked when I first heard, and like more and more everytime I listen to it. This is a must have for any music fan, the onlt band I can link to them are Pink Floyd, but only the way the songs flow, sound wise they are unique. If you like Dredg, check out Pure Reason Revolution, a new and upcoming band that are also brilliant!!! Enjoy the album folks.

Perfection

Absolutely beautiful, mixing rock with just about every other genre of music in existence. The whole album is perfect. Exquisite vocals, epic guitars, throbbing bass and snappy drums! Shame dredg's next album Catch Without Arms isn't on here as that is also superb!

Dredg self-released the Orph EP in 1997. The ambitious Leitmotif followed two years late, and it was reissued with the band's 2001 signing to Interscope. El Cielo, Dredg's proper Interscope debut, arrived in...
