I'm not crazy about the harsh electronic sounds employed in some of the tunes/sections, and for the duration they're used. I preferred the mellower (for lack of a better word) sounds, as heard on the last tune/section for example.
Obviously a talented group.
The sound on this recording doesn't strike me as harsh at all.... But I can imagine system linearity playing a big role here..... There isn't a lot of dynamic compression on this recording.
...the "Moog through a distortion pedal" sounds that dominate a few of the tunes ("Swamp Thing" comes to mind). They do get to squaring those off pretty hard, almost into Atari territory if you will, but listening to the record again through the lens you describe, it still hits my ear mostly pretty gently, and always melodically. I do think the drummer has a lot to do with what I like here. He (Perrin Moss is his name) has an unusually light touch for the genre, and his poise is impeccable. I ordered their first two albums on vinyl today...I'm looking forward to hearing this music not streaming over YT.
I find myself wondering if it's time to get into downloads.
