You Say: “Set the blue­print that was matched but never bet­tered.” Ken Rhodes, MOJO Face­book Di­nosaur’s true mas­ter­piece was this minia­ture psy­che­delic epic, open­ing with the wah-wah over­drive of Lit­tle Fury Things and clos­ing with Lou Bar­low’s lo-fi freak­out Poledo, while in between shred­ding your speak­ers with its pedal-stomping majesty. This their sec­ond long-player peaks with Kracked/ Sludge­feast, wherein anx­i­ety-driven in­die rock is swiftly torn apart by a steroidal riff of skyscraper-lev­el­ling might, though the lyri­cal, po­etic The Lung, and the mo­ment Tarpit’s lazy-eyed, slouch­ing strum gets swal­lowed by white noise, were also high­lights. Through­out, the in­fa­mously ret­i­cent in­ter­vie­wee Mas­cis proves to be much more elo­quent and po­etic when wield­ing dis­tor­tion, feed­back and noise than when he is us­ing words, and here he de­liv­ered one of the great­est tri­umphs in Amer­i­can un­der­ground rock.
