Dredg – el cielo

Eclectic Album of the Year
Album of the Year

The following was originally published in our Killer CD's section. 

Review by Scott Slapp

When I was handed this CD by my editor, I took a quick glance at it and saw the Interscope logo on it and thought, “great, another s***ty nu-metal band!”  I couldn’t have been more mistaken if I tried. I was totally unprepared for what was about to explode out of my speakers! 

I’m still a bit speechless; this album is beyond simple words and cliché’s. For a loudmouth with an opinion about everything, this has been a bit of a shock to those that know me. The music can literally take you to another place, sort of like a good Pink Floyd album. Drop a couple tabs and pop this puppy in and you’ll be in seventh heaven. Naw man, this ain’t acid rock. It’s in a class all it’s own.

The Floyd comparison isn’t far off, I’d say take Pink Floyd and put them together with A Perfect Circle and you’ll wind up with a band like Dredge. Their sound is a surreal, mindbending exploration in sound and melody that totally engulfs you and holds you in its grasp. 

I’m in state of utter shock that a major label like Interscope would have enough taste to release something like this. It’s not your run of the mill blandness that we usually get from the majors. Actually, no words can be put down to describe Dredge because regardless of what you say, it still comes up far too short to do the music justice. This album is a modern masterpiece that is simply beautiful. Yeah, I said beautiful.. ok hell ain’t quite freezin’ over but I gotta tell you after attempting to write this damn review for a month, the best I can tell you is to stop reading my mindless dribble, move your ass out of that seat and go buy this thing. I’m tellin’ you right now this album has my vote for album of year! Hands down!  Dude, you still hear?  Come on, you can skip buying that dimebag today, and buy this CD instead. I’m telling you it will give you a much more intense buzz!
