Glide Review - Howlin' Rain - The Russian Wilds
Got a review up on Glide.
Give it a Read Right C'here!!!
It is of Howlin' Rain's newest The Russian Wilds.
This is a thick album and one that I am not completely sure I have a formed opinion on. I know that sounds strange, but sometimes albums need to unfold and this one is not easy to see with only a few listens...Initially things were not good, the excess and over the top arena from '75 was too much for me.
Going back I found somethings to like, particularly "Dark Side" and "Can't Satisfy Me Now". They are far and away the simplest tracks here, also the best. The 8 minute wandering tunes just don't do it for me and I like those kind of jams.
Who knows maybe this will show up on RTBE's best of list at the end of the year...or maybe it won't get played again...time will tell. Grab the album here and check out some musical samples below.
"Phantom In The Valley"
"Self Made Man"
