Mr Krinkle
4 stars Grog, Psicotropia's second cd, represents an improvement in their short carreer. This album shows a mature band, more focused than in its previous work, with a superior quality on recording and production. The most significant change on the band's line-up is the departure of singer Nacho Cuevas, assuming Pablo Tato the role of lead vocalist.

At first, we notice a harder sound, in tracks like "V", "Zas" or "Quasar". But there's also space for beautiful moods and melodies, as we hear in "Leuven" and "Nana Negra". Odd-time signatures and stylistic variations whitin the same song listen are also a main feature on this album. Just listen to the last track, there's about 20 rhythm changes!

Shades of King Crimson, Primus and Tool are evident within Grog. Even bizarre and funny bits, reminding of Mr. Bungle or Zappa.

For fans of experimental prog and the above mentioned bands, this is a must! (my rating: 4 and a half stars)

Mr Krinkle | 4/5 |
