Volume 567

Another solid contribution by MICHAEL FREYLER, whose vault is open exclusively for us here. Indeed, the brass connection is made stronger by this mind-blowing set, with its pulsating bass lines and that unmistakable horny sound.
I wish to declare my deep-seated rancor against "lengthy drum solos", as evidenced of my editing such tracks going ape shit.  A fucking drum solo, what is that, really? Recordings made by Grand Funk, Led Zeppelin, Rare Earth, Iron Butterfly, etc. of which a track is devoted, for the most part, to a solo drum performance blatantly exhibited lack of critical thinking, if not elegance, in making us suffer inconsequential percussive rackets; and in excruciatingly great measure at that! But, what can you expect? Brilliance is a rarity among homo sapiens. 
Having had a good listen to THE IDES OF MARCH's "Tie-Dye Princess" opened up the floodgates of my wrath upon discovering there's after all a better way to showcase a drummer's artistry. This track demonstrates the musical genius of the group and by interspersing the prominent drum parts with other instruments they achieved finesse. And how I love the sound of the drums! I'm pretty sure John Bonham must have evoked it countless times to those guys hell-bent on having a smoke break while he busts his guts out, pounding alone on stage.
