Album Review

One year after the release of Darn Floor Big Bite, Daniel Amos decided to secretly reinvent themselves as the Swirling Eddies, complete with pseudonyms and an air of novelty and farce. All this in support of a stunning record that hearkens back to the 1980 DA classic Horrendous Disc in both sound and attitude. Mature writing and rootsy guitars separate this release from the more experimental records DA had been releasing up to that point, along with more conspicuous Southern accents on the part of the vocalists. The analogue with Horrendous Disc is pronounced: The title track easily calls to mind "I Love You #19" and the "Ed Takes a Vacation" suite is reminiscent of "(Near-Sighted Girl With Approaching) Tidal Wave." All in all, however, this is significantly more mature than the earlier works to which this release refers. It offers less oblique references to a Christian doctrine and more poetic lyrics, along with higher standards of musicianship and better arrangements. Whereas Darn Floor Big Bite relied less on synthesizers than previous releases, Let's Spin! goes back even further to more traditional instrumentation. It contains very little echo and a lot of acoustic guitar, and guitars are primarily strummed rather than finessed (à la Darn Floor). Quite a left turn from works up to that point, but an excellent record overall. ~ Mark W.B. Allender, Rovi

Great music

Yee haaaaaawwww

This is what makes I tunes worth having

LET'S SPIN!!!! More Terry Taylor, more Daniel Amos, more Swirling Eddies, more Lost Dogs. Even Surfonic Water Revival is on here. Hey, I've got an idea! How about digging up the Muzak special releases from the fan club?

The Eddies Debut!?!

You have got to buy this album! Groceries, rent, gas, clothes, girl/boy friend and nearly everything else can wait. Funk, rock, pop and a bit of psychedelia await. What's not to like? You've got traces of Beach Boys (What a World. . .), Hot Chocolate (Idea. . .) and Floyd (Snowballs). For me it is the most consistent out of all the Eddies. (Which is not to say the rest are no good, they are. This is just better - or not. You decide) I'm going out on a ledge here - and if you push me I'll fall - but I think you will find this album to be money well spent. (And I know Terry and the gang will agree.) Or. . . you could buy the Berry Vest album and get a whole lot o' Eddies with great bonus tracks like "Like Lazarus", but I digest. I can see right now those dollar bills just begging to jump out of your pocket. Resistance is futile. Buy the album and rock on!

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s

After the release and subsequent disappearance of Daniel Amos' critically acclaimed Darn Floor Big Bite, Terry Taylor began to embark on a solo project, utilizing many of his fellow and former DA cohorts and drummer David Raven. As the songs began to come together, the project began to look more and more like a band project. And thus were the Swirling Eddies born, all members taking on phony names. Terry Scott Taylor was known as Camarillo Eddy. Guitarist Greg Flesch became Gene Pool. Bassist Tim...
