OKAY PADDY: The Cactus Has a Point: CD

Jun 20, 2007

Reaction to opening notes: what the hell is this smarmy mess? Reaction to entire record: surprisingly good/much better than expected/you dumbass, stop with the instant judgments. This really did surprise me because it’s not often that I come across a relatively mellow (THE word that springs to mind with every song) rock’n’roll record that I can’t get enough of. In a lot of ways this sounds to me, at least, like a subdued version of The Figgs, as if they were to make a record baked on a whole load of weed. It’s so easy to get bored with fast-paced fury at times, and this was a welcome change of pace for me.
