KALEIDOSCOPE: Self-titled: 7”

Early Hüsker Dü under the influence of mind-altering substances. There are moments when the songs creep up from behind you and grab you by the throat but then just sort of leave you in suspense. The final song on this record is where things get a little more interesting, but even then the vocals are a tad too soft to complement the intensity of the music. Had some really high expectations for this one, as Katorga Works has had a pretty solid track record up until now. The artwork is magnificent, however. –Juan Espinosa (Katorga Works)
