Track by Track Review
Slicing and dicing a ten-foot face like a tri-fin, "Thruster" races across a mean wave of reverb and thrills. An excellent surf instrumental with lots of power and dashing flair. Too cool.
A blast of thrashing reverb and drum wrangle shreds the calm and pummels the night. fast double picked surf rage, let loose on an unsuspecting world. Very powerful.
This is a very cool track, smooth and mystical, with a great rambling gate and stereo delayed reverb lead guitar. All this gives it an interesting sound that brings you back. Quite interesting.
