Superorganism Album Review
September 9, 2013
The music created from the brain of Mickey Hart is something that I would kind of expect from a former drummer of the Grateful Dead, wild, eclectic, and full of rhythm and groove. Even though I do like Mickey Hart from his days on the Grateful Dead, I was very impressed with Superorganism. The sounds that are used in the songs are different with sounds that I just can't figure out how to explain their sound. Given that they are brain wave sounds I don't find it surprising that I can't describe the way they sound. What I can say is that I enjoyed the songs a lot.
What this album does is what I want all albums to do, give me songs that sound different from each other, has a beat that I can get into, tunes that are catchy, lyrics that are meaningful, and a tempo that makes me want to sing and tap my foot. These songs have a wide range of sounds being played where they give a rock song with one, a blues with another, and all are being backed by vocals of Crystal Monee Hall. Her voice is smooth and strong in the songs and is a big reason why I liked this album. There's some noise being played here but it's a stylish noise that just sounds like it has always been played that way.
