BLIND DOG

"Captain Dog Rides Again" (Meteor City; 2003)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Swedish rock'n'rollers Blind Dog have returned with their high-octane, kick-in-the-ass sophomore release, "Captain Dog Rides Again." 

"Captain Dog Rides Again" is a CD that will take you on a ride rich with stoner grooves - such as the laconic "Follow the Fools,"  and the fuzzed out frenetic rhythms of tracks like "Iron Cage" - and, above all, a memorable trip into some honest, gritty rock. This power trio hits hard and strikes often, exploding into jams that come out of nowhere, yet never fail to rip your face off. 

Blind Dog not only challenges the eardrums, but also urges the brain to remain switched on and (God forbid) give some thought to the world and its eclectic and eccentric events, all the while invading your listening space with swirling guitars, monstrous drums, thunderous basslines and vocals as deep as the Pacific Ocean. 

If you dig Sabbath, Entombed, Blue Cheer, Fu Manchu, and, hell, all those crazy stoner rock bands, one listen of Blind Dog's latest will make you a rabid fan.

Rating Guide:

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.
