Track by Track Review
Long dribbled lines ride against relatively dry chords and a noticeably compressed rhythm section. The melody line is more bout intensity than melody. It is only the organ break with its glissandos that really has a melody. Nevertheless. "Slippery Slope" is a serious and dark surf ride.
A perfect surf pattern starts "Cold Blooded" off with a bang. It's dramatic, visually stimulating, and engaging. Its form is somewhat reminiscent of Pollo Del Mar, and it's whammy is very cool. This is a fine song.
