Another fundamental brick in the prog-rock music wall.
This band started its career by doing artistic cover versions from tunes composed by other people, and this third album presents their own matured composing skills. Earlier "The Beat Goes On" was more like an abstract artsy tryout when compared to this masterpiece in my opinion. The most dominant elements are still the strong organ chord layers, powerful vocal harmonies and very strong emotional load, resembling a state of religious pathos.
1994 proved to be a busy year for the band with two full length studio albums being released for Rockworld. Max Norman helped mix 'Chewing On The Bit' and later in the year the band relased 'One Bad Leg' before Ostergaard engaged in a second RUMBLEDOG album. Henrik is the only remaining original member at this point, but the sound is still unmistakably Dirty Looks. Heavy, sleazy, catchy, rock and roll.
Interplay, Prestige Records' new 5-CD set, containing early collaborative recordings of the peerless tenor saxophonist and visionary John Coltrane, serves two distinct purposes. The first is to offer an extraordinary collection of music that provides an excellent overview of the modern jazz scene during the fertile 1956-1958 period. The other - and arguably more important purpose to the legions of Coltrane faithful - is its rich delineation of the evolutionary process behind one of the most profoundly important and emotionally compelling artists this planet has ever seen.
