The Shining Path - The Shining Path
The Shining Path from The United States were again unknown to me, but it needs to be reviewed. Their album is self titled and thatís the only thing I know about it. It is really not appropriate music to listen to, stoned, drunk, soberÖ. I have heard this record in every possible state of mind and I still donít get it. I suppose itís some noisy retro-punk, totally psychedelic.
 
This could be interpreted as positive, but for me it really isnít. The music is a weird noise with too many spaced out effects, but the timing is completely wrong. I like Sunn O))) and I can even listen to The Locust, but this is shit, and I am really calling it shit like in shit that is not cool. I donít care how many musicians are in this band and what freaked instrument they play. This is really too much for me.
 
I have this album in my possession for about 3 months now, and the reason why I waited so long with this review is simply because I canít compel myself to listen to it. I have done so now, 4 times actually, and as I said before, in every state of mindÖ I canít do anything with this album. Perhaps it has been an awful shitload of work to complete or create this, but that does not alter the fact I do not like it. Period.
