Voices Of Wonder, 1991
Recorded in December 1990 in the cold lands of Oslo, this is the first album of a
cult band named Motorpsycho. The sound that you can find in their releases canít be
called stoner rock, canít be called psychedelic rock, simply it canít be precisely
defined. In this first release something sounds like proto-stoner, something sounds
noisy, something really psychedelic.
The title song is very short and open the album in a really quiet way, but after a
minute is broken by the heavy riff of Grinder, a song nasty and powerful, with a
screamed voice. Hogwash is one the songs I prefer, seventy oriented, with a bluesly
guitar riff and a hammond that drive you through eight minutes of heavy psychedelic
The other tracks sound really heavy, as the strong mid tempo Home Of The Brave, while
in Frances we got the pop side of motorpsycho, with some strange melodies very
seductive. Finally, I have to underline the W. Blake poetry told with echoes and
psychedelic effects in a hypnotic way, a little pearl for who loves romantic poets.
