Wolf People - Steeple
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 05/02/2011 23:18:04
I find it hard to believe these guys are touring small venues (though they are headlining), given the quality of the music on this album. Their take on "psych-rock" has produced a superb album with their folk-tinged melodies. Silbury Sands and Tiny Circles have been part of their live staple for a while now and sound as fresh as ever here and the beautiful Morning Born seguing into the distorted guitar riffing of Cromlech is pure genius.
This album will certainly appeal to those who appreciate the guitar-led music of the 70s, but is firmly an album for the 21st century. I have seen reviews of this album leaning towards a 7/10 to a 9/10. However, if you see the guys live, you will know why I think this album is worth every point. Plus, the stupidly low price makes buying this one a no-brainer.
