5 stars Perhaps Volume One is without a doubt one of the filthiest rock and roll albums I've ever heard. This geometry rock reads more like a chaotic acid trip than anything else, from the highs, to the lows, to everything in between. It's really 90% composition, and 10% improvisation, and this can be heard in the wailing guitar solo of every song. There's also an exotic sound to be heard, stemming from the use of the gong to ominously foreshadow the journey to come. Truly ranging in atmosphere from dramatic detail to calming minimalism that leads you through the entire album in one fluid motion, PERHAPS definitely acts as a tour guide with Volume One, leading the listener through a series of twists and turns that eventually develop into a resolution for the album. Overall, the album seems to be in the business of drawing sources from a number of genres including acid rock, post-rock, jazz, and even punk. Rhythm and guitar are used more as facilitators of timbre and textures than melodically, which leads to a very interesting, experimentally-based endeavor into the minds of the artists who produced this. A lot of work went into this and it shows. Loved this album!!!
