OPPRESSED LOGIC: Ones That Control: CD

Feb 28, 2008

Reminds me of Mystic Records bands like R.K.L., Don’t know, and Scared Straight minus the double bass drums. On first listen, it didn’t really move me. Something in it took me back to the mid-’80s and the local LA scene. Bands like these were a dime a dozen back in the day but they’re probably considered old school today. If this band was local and I had seen them many times live, I would probably have a different perspective. But as a newcomer, I was not blown away. The almost out of tune sound of the guitars mixed with the double bass drumming on this rubbed me wrong.
