Trundle. That’s the word.
There is none of the same quirk as we saw in the psychedelia of the gorgeously bleeping ‘AM 180’ and less of the of the emotion we saw in the heartbroken collection of followups. It's less than what it used to be and yet there appears to be some sort of acceptance about it. *Grandaddy *seem to just be trundling.
They’re using more guitars than ever before now, but still just sprinkling keyboards over the top in swathes of electroglory. Jason Lyttle’s yearning pine is as soulful as ever and almost makes you think there is a little more substance. Sadly, no. It’s not left lacking the basics (nice tune, sound structure, etc.), but they’re not basic. Or at least they shouldn’t be.
I guess it’s my fault for expecting something different _and _good. Bah.
