Listen Without Distraction: Review #1

Sometimes, for no particular reason, I like to look for reviews about the Kyuss tribute CD I did back in the day. So, I guess I'll be uploading some reviews from time to time. Most of them are online in some blog no longer active. Also, I'll try to find a few ones that were published in printed media. It may take me a little longer since I have those mags somewhere in my parent's house.

Anyway, this one was published at the Get off My Elevator blog. As usual, the guy doing the review has some prejudice on the fact the CD features argentinian bands only. I can't blame him, really. The good thing is that he end up liking it. Hope you like it too!

"This is a great tribute! I admit, it took some time for a few of the covers to grow on me, but over time I came to respect the effort of every band featured on this CD. If you don't think the idea of 16 Argentinean bands covering KYUSS classics sounds like a good one, I understand your skepticism, but I also know you'll probably change your mind about 20 seconds into CYGNUS' rendition of "Thumb". Highlights? Definitely CRUZDIABLO's merging of "100 Degrees" and "Whitewater", as well as SAURON's "Phototropic". SENDERO LUMINOSO's acoustic slant on "Love Has Passed Me By" is very interesting. Of course, another highlight is the extensive liner notes, penned by the one and only Scott Reeder, but in order to read those you'll need to order your own copy at stonerrock.com.

Before I gush any further, I'll just say that if you enjoy tribute albums, I think this is exactly the tribute album for the G.O.M.E. faithful"

Note: Sadly, stonerrock.com is no longer active and Dan -the owner- is not selling the tribute CD anymore. But you can order it on this site! Just look at the paypal button at the right of your screen.
