Mushroom River Band, The - Simsalabim
Spice who was the one time vocalist for Michael Amott's SPIRITUAL BEGGARS has pumped out a second CD that's loaded with power. This disc is a powder keg packed with 10 tracks that explode through the speakers once you push play.

Since Stoner Rock has been setting into the sunset for quite some time now, Hard Rock is the way to go. Stoner Rock isn't a bad medium it's just that people aren't doing anything new with it. The title track is a total adrenalin rush to the brain that will make you shake your head and play air guitar. Spice's vocals have never sounded better. Hard driving drum beats with crunchy riffs laced with melody and 70's inspired bands rule the CD.

This is a product that would have worked if it was released in the 70's, 80's and even in the 90's despite the Grunge-rage. But the fact is, we have it now and it's a total kick in the ass! This isn't commercial Rock. This is Rock...the way it should be! (Online July 2, 2002)
