"Teaser Trailer" (Illicit
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Man, I didnít know what to expect from Adult Cinema
when the download link for "Teaser Trailer" showed up in my inbox but it
hooked me from the instant it started to the end of its play. Itís a sly,
progressively-edged album whose music reminded me of Pink Floyd (especially
on tracks like "We Sailed Across the Sea" and "Dreamt the Other Night") and
The Alan Parsons Project (as on "Feel Your Eyes.") With its extensive use of
keyboards and /or synthesizers, the ethereal vocals and the occasional
bursts of heavy guitar, this album will mostly appeal to fans of those two
I know. It's been said that Greta Von Fleet sounds
too much like Zeppelin and maybe Adult Cinema sounds a little too much like
Pink Floyd. I don't care. I like Pink Floyd and I like Adult Cinema. More of
what you like shouldn't be a bad thing.
Interestingly, although this album was just sent to
me, I discovered that it was actually released back in 2016. Based on the
strength of "Teaser Trailer," I went on a hunt for other Adult Cinema
titles. Gotta be careful when you're Googling "adult cinema" at work. But
I've found one additional CD so far: "This is Your Life - 2018 Remastered
Version 2018" but it's priced at nearly $1,000(!). Thankfully, the mp3
download is closer to $10.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
