4 stars A real nice debut from Heavy Water Experiments; a duo formed by two of the four members of US act Imogene.

Psychedelic, hard rock with strong retro tendencies is what's offered on this album; with driving, energetic drum patterns and vibrant basslines as trademark parts of the compositions; with organ, keyboards and some nifty guitarwork catering for the rest of the details. Indeed, the shifts in style and energy are mostly due to the guitar, with a formulaic approach of using acoustic or mellow electric guitars for the verse segments of the compositions and grittier, distorted guitars for the chorus and instrumental parts. Worth noting is the absence of traditional guitar soloing too - for the most part.

The guitars and vocals add most of the psychedelic tendencies in these creations; and although variable in degree this is very much a heavy piece of psychedelic rock with the basic compositional structure of verse-chorus-verse being the main negative about these tunes.

Highly recommended to fans of vintage heavy psychedelic rock.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
