"Apollo" (Liquor and Poker; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

As the old adage declares, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it; and no one knows this better than space cadet rock troupe Nebula, whose fourth full-length release, "Apollo," continues the mission to meld spacey blues jams into your collective conscious.

Containing 14 tracks of well-done hard rock, tracks like the acidic one-two combo of “Fever Frey” and “Lightbringer” showcase why this trio is lauded as the galaxy’s reigning dirty boogie champions, while stoner rock fans everywhere rejoice over instrumental gold such as “Trapezium Procession” and fawn over the fuzzy fretboard magic on “The Eagle Has Landed.”

Procuring the art of the tasteful jam while providing contagious riffs like “Ghost Ride” and “Fruit of My Soul,” Nebula’s latest offers little surprises yet yields massive results for anyone that wants to join the tune in and burn out brigade.

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.
