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 couldnt have been more
mistaken if I tried. I was totally unprepared for what was about to explode
out of my speakers!
Im still a bit speechless; this album
is beyond simple words and clichés. 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 youll be
in seventh heaven. Naw man, this aint acid rock. Its in a class all its
The Floyd comparison isnt far off, Id
say take Pink Floyd and put them together with A Perfect Circle and youll
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.
Im in state of utter shock that a major
label like Interscope would have enough taste to release something like
this. Its 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 aint 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. Im 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. Im
telling you it will give you a much more intense buzz!
