"simian split" is a great song, it doesn't rush into anything, yet builds up beautifully.. lyrically it shows a soft side that's unrelated to their bluesy ballads..
"presidici" is the pop that hid underneath the feedback in psychocandy, and the drive munki had..
"mood rider" feels like a young lou reed messing around on the guitar at times, great dynamic tempo here..
"get on home" is pure automatic era, yet enhanced with more textures and 50-something rebel attitude..
yep, the album grows on you..
my final critique would be on the overall production - too polished, and the lacquer buries the finer moments of frenzy and nuance in the sound..
i'm sure they'll make up for it live..
i did say i was happy, didn't i?
