Number 4



Number 4


We're almost entering the Top 3. But first we jump six points from Kadavar and Causa Sui on Number 5 to reach the fourth position. To be completely honest, I had not expected this album (or Number 3) to reach this position. There is no denying they're both damn good albums. But for some reason the feedback had not been that loud when these albums came out. But hey, this band is awesome, dammit! These cats found their way unto the Number 11 spot of the Stoner HiVe Top 20 Countdown back in 2012. And we cannot deny that this record contains 75 minutes of pure unadulterated bliss. More jazzy than its predecessors the album does what the band does best, bring hypnotic jams that are sure to make you dream of that one wild summer of love once again or even fall in love all over again. Or as Tony van Dorston wrote on his insanely amazing Fast N Bulbous: “For the most part, Koglek sticks to what he does best, expansive, jammy psychedelic rock with serpentine guitar lines and sweet, fuzzy tones. The sound seems to have a more up-front live feel, as you can almost imagine the wind sweeping in from the Tyrrhennian Sea onto the sandy hills in Sardinia, Koglek’s favorite place to play via Duna Jam.” Aah yes, wind swept love, strolling together through a luscious field of flowers and burying your head...

  1. "But for some reason the feedback had not been that loud when these albums came out."

    And the 2nd one on position 4? Or still about n°5?

    In Her Garden: most overrated album in its genre in 2017!

  2. It was about Numbers 3 & 4. Both great albums, undoubtly. But I had not expected them this high. Overrated is going to far in my opinion. But I can understand, on some level, where you are coming from.
