Track by Track Review


Prophet dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Prophet" is a very pretty and melodic surf instro with a slightly sad melody line and a pristine guitar with shallow whammy chords that drip tragic surf. It's really quite cool. This is an interesting surf instro that is supposedly live, though the audience fades out and fades back in at the end. What's unclear to me is whether it's really the Poor or not, since the live intro credits the Esquires from the "Galaxy Sea of Denver."
