The Machine – Drie


The Machine – Drie
Elektrohasch – 2010
Rock/Stoner/Psychedelica
Waardering: ****

Without pausing for a moment’s rest the Dutch trio of The Machine who have been steaming through the psychedelic musical landscape since 2006; truck on. The first album Shadow Of The Machine was released in 2007 and Solar Corona made the top albums list of 2009. At that time the gentlemen already professed they would release a third album in 2010. The third album called ‘Drie’ (Dutch for three/third) has now hit the stores and a fourth is in the making for 2011. Spectacular form guys! This is the way to go; back to that seventies mentality. Create, produce; let the good times roll. Especially when the quality of the songwriting is this freakin good. And not just the mentality goes back to the glorious years; so does the music. We can still hear the Jimi and Zeppelin flag flying high and Blue Cheer and Colour Haze being absolute heroes or the three amigos; with this time around a few more nods towards Kyuss. Psychedelic fuzz, whirling jams, tight stoner and acidic riffing. Incredible record; and with such a quality curve the 2011 record will definitely near perfection!

  2. Couldn't agree more. Excellent album, but weirdly not as good as the first 2 for me. Still great, rocks hard but is a little more polished than the others.
    Thanks \m/

  3. Not yet sure which of the three I dig the most... All three of them got their own things going for them... ;)
