4 stars Listening diary 13th January, 2022: Kingston Wall - III - Tri-Logy (psychedelic progressive rock, 1994)

An album that perhaps should not work. Does mid-90's psych-prog really get anyone out of their seat? Coupled with the fact that it's partly influenced by psytrance? There were a few artists kicking around doing this sort of thing in the 90s, but not many that I can say do it as convincingly as Kingston Wall. And it's all because they write good songs first, before they go and drop acid and jam out the instrumental passages. If this was half the length and all the weird psych bits were removed, it would be a passable alt-rock album with strong melodies, good performances and memorable hooks. The psych doesn't necessarily detract from that - it's more the fact that all piled together there's 70+ minutes of stuff here. But when it's good, it's some of the best that 90's prog got to.

6.8 (5th listen)
