8/10 Brett Staff review, 19 June 2008
I like Grails in my life and here's some more. For me to like. I tell you what, the first track on here is an absolute belter and I think they know it, the little sheet included in the CD digipak has artwork based around it with nary a mention of the other songs. Actually the artwork in general is a weird mishmash of styles from cheesy stoner-rock paintings to a weird collage of what looks like a tiny early 20th century lynch mob at the feet of a giant lovely lady, then the cover artwork is something totally different again. What does it all MEAN? God only knows. Back to that first song then, it starts and finishes with morse code but in between you've got a massive groove with Eastern-sounding noodling over the top, it sounds opulent, indulgent and ominous all at the same time. Like the sharif's court band trying to knock out a jam whilst stoned out of their minds and running down a massive mountain to escape an avalanche that may or may not exist only in their frazzled imaginations. After that it mellows out quite a bit in the middle but the last two tracks ratchet the intensity back up for another couple of really strong tracks (a questionable organ interlude notwithstanding). If you liked the quasi-religious feel of stuff like Om's 'Pilgrimage' and you've not heard Grails before this could well be right up your street.
