|Homonimo is relatively pedestrian, and is all mono except for one track. The version of "Hava Nagila" is the only track really displaying interesting arranging.|
Picks: Hava Nagila, Buscapie
Track by Track Review
Aptly titled, "Rock Noise" is a thick riff rocker, with keyboard lead. It doesn't really anything special going for it. Very derivative, but it is fun.
Steeped in Dick Dale's influence, there are some interesting production values with the guitar. Some are two guitars hard-panned, others one guitar dead center. The break is led by very moody organ. The drums sound awful, but are played well. All in all, this is a very original arrangement.
Heavy distortion guitar playing a relentless riff, walking bass and surf drums in the distance. If not for the bass line, "El Spaguetti" would be completely dismissible. There's nothing spaghetti about this.
Slow, with long sinewy sustain, and a generally haunting sound... but then, double picked guitar plays a cool melody line with organ pumping. "Buscapie" rocks with gritty guitar and organ and occasional glissandos.
The organ plays a fun version of Booker T. and the MG's' "Green Onions ." While fun, it doesn't stand out among the hundreds of versions out there.
