VITAL MIGHT, THE: Red Planet: CD

Invoking Bowie’s Law, I picked this out of the review pile based on the title of the first song, “Phantom Spaceman,” totally playing with fire by ignoring the fine print at the end of said law, “NOTE: Any guarantee of swellitude applies only to music made by Mr. Bowie hisself.” As a result, I’ve got a thin, disc-like hole in my rear car window courtesy of my stereo, which violently vomited this go-for-the-brass-ring bit of alt-rock pilf. Lesson learned: Never, EVER fuck with Bowie’s Law.
