GERSCH, THE: Self-titled: CD

This sounds a lot like Acid King. Slow, heavy stoner rock with Fleetwood Mac sounding vocals. When I first heard Acid King, almost ten years ago, I thought it was kinda lame, third generation jumping-on-the-stoner-rock bandwagon same old shit. At this point, hearing something like this is on par with hearing muzak in the grocery store. It sounds so much like everything else, so uninspired, that you just tune it out. Maybe if you’ve never heard anything crazier than Black Sabbath’s Paranoid you might like this, otherwise just avoid it. It sounds like everything else you’ve heard a million times before.
