Album Review

This third release was bound to disappoint fans of the outrageous Stooges/Beefheart-influenced band. The album swung through a wider variety of styles, including Stones-style boogie rock ("Be Myself Again," "Baritone Street," "Circles"), melancholy ballads ("Golden Age," "Can't Slow Down"), and one genuine psychedelic epic ("Coda").
