The Writhing Squares – In the Void Above

Just a bit too much space on the space rock part of things. The album gets stale after the first few tracks, and not even the saxophones can help. The production is terrible, even for a space rock album. Only Balloon to the Moon did anything for me. I feel like there’s just too much emphasis on texture, and not nearly enough on actual content. I mean yeah, it’s cool to hear all of the weird guitar noises, but 46 minutes of that with relatively little else interesting going on just doesn’t do it for me. The jazz parts are really basic and seem to be there more just for superficial flavor, rather than being an integral part of the music. Call me unconvinced.
