ICECOCOON

"The Sindividual(s)" (Owenian Records; 2007)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Icecocoon's "The Sindividual(s)" is an arresting blend of Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails and the Alan Parsons Project. Heavy with synthesizers, "The Sindividual(s)" runs the gamut from relatively smooth, nearly space-rock tracks to raging rockers with crunchy electric guitars and embedded lead solos to effects-laden spoken word sampling segments.

As you might expect, "The Sindividual(s)" isn't for everyone, but it's hard to imagine fans of the above-mentioned bands and bands like Prong and Unsane not finding this CD to their liking.

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.
