3 stars I haven't heard much of Motorpsycho's work (as of yet), but from what I've read they are a versatile band, trying to do a different kind of album every time. However, from what I did listen to (their later work), it all falls under the heavy acid and garage rock moniker, influenced by the likes of Cream, Jimi Hendrix and heavy space rock. Its not all pounding, of course, for the band has a poppier and an acoustic side as well.

I've read that Eggplant was made of leftover material from other albums, and it kinda shows, with songs often ending abruptly, filled with directionless jamming and absent strong melodic hooks. The best of this 5 song bunch is probably Hell (parts 1-3; there are other parts on Behind the Sun, but they are not really related), with its monstrous riff and a cool minimalistic outro, and August, which has a couple of poppy verses before launching into a frenetic jam.

Progrussia | 3/5 |
