ECHOES: The Pursuit: CD

Musically, this is heavy on the atmospherics—lots of echo, howling feedback, and the like. All well and good until the singer chimes in with guttural hollering that sounds about as fitting with the music as a fluffy meringue pie with bitumen. I’m all for experimentation and playing mix-and-match with different genres, but this is proof that not all such efforts bear edible fruit.
