Review by EducateFright

EducateFright I suppose YMMV with this SOAMelt, but as far as I'm concerned, this one is top notch. Freaky, tense, and unnerving. It blows me away every time. Trey playing complete nonsense on the synth is perfect for what it adds to the atmosphere - my jaw dropped the first time I heard it. And then Mike just slays by playing some of the most nasty and angular bass licks I've ever heard him lay down. I really appreciate the repetitive nature of his playing here. This jam is right up there with the 1996-11-02 Crosseyed And Painless (Coral Sky), and in a somewhat similar vein in terms of them both being unsettling, psychedelic jams with plenty of atmosphere. Not sure how many people agree... all I know is this jam moves me. It's burned into my memory.
