"Cosmic Wool" (Nemesis Records; 2018)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

With a band (and CD) name like "Cosmic Wool," you have to expect that some fuzzy guitar music is on hand, and the band doesnít disappoint.

"Cosmic Wool" (the CD) is eight tracks loaded with chunky, fuzzy guitar and psychedelic songs, driven by pounding bass and outstanding drums. The band gets funky on songs like "Nina Cherry" and "All Alone," but arenít afraid to bring the heavy either, as "Flower of the Garden" and "Hole for a Head" easily prove.

It's almost like stoner rock with an alternative flair but thatís not quite right either. Regardless, if youíre a fan of bands like Fu Manchu and Queens of the Stone Age, my hunch is that youíll find something to like about Cosmic Wool, too.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
