Trouble - Simple Mind Condition
My o my, fans of this band must have felt in so much Trouble over the last years. ‘Would they release their promised album, or wouldn’t they?’ was the main question that must have risen in many metal head’s minds. Luckily for them, Trouble presents. Simple Mind Conduction. Finally.
 
Let’s not get into the details of everything that went wrong during the recordings, label talks etc. Enough has been said already. The fact is that, after Psalm 9 andThe Skull, this album must meet the quality of songs on those records. And unfortunately, it doesn’t. The songs differ from the previous work of the band, because they’re much more straight forward. The (slow) interludes in between the songs have disappeared and made place for decent up-tempo songs. However, especially the guitar riffs, it’s all pretty much basic rock songs without any surprises. Imagine the old Trouble and combine it with a little higher speed and you have the recipe of Simple Mind Conduction.
It’s not like there is just one pattern on the album; the extremities have just come closer. Opener ‘Going Home’ and ‘Trouble Maker’ have such enthusiasm that I’m sure it’ll do pretty nice in any rock bar. However, the slow track ‘Arthur Brown’s Whiskey Bar’ and the title track, with pretty annoying, squeezing vocals make clear to me that the band could not choose a clear direction and as a result, the album sounds a little like an olla podrida. Music-wise it’s pretty much ok. Yet, after waiting for so long and having kept patience for a few years, I hoped for a little more.
