4 stars These manic studio scientists really hit the mark with this 1995 recording and installed them as among the best new American outfits to be reckoned with. Led by the now famous Erik Norlander whose Emersonian fixation was fueled by the use of a vast array of analog and digital machines, a dexterous stick player Don Schiff and a metronome like drummer, "Brutal Architecture" is not always brutal but its certainly powerful architecture highlighted by 2 memorable tracks , the amazing instrumental "Nether" and the grandiose two-part epic ballad "Mariner" full of hooks of unparalleled beauty. Those LA beaches sure can inspire some interesting musicians , even though this is certainly no laid-back groovy beach bum style. Truly excellent and deserving of return engagements. 4 agenas
