"Sucking the 70s: Back in the Saddle Again" (Small Stone; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Sharing a love of fuzzy guitars and big hooks once more, Small Stone Records unleashes another batch of stoner rock units chewing on their 70s musical fantasies on "Sucking the 70s - Back in the Saddle Again." 

Providing bang for your buck, this twin disc set contains 31 tracks of arena rock gems, disco shimmies, and undisputed classic songs from the era of the muscle car and polyester, all twistedly translated into bong-loading anthems. 

Check out the poignant Scott Reeder rendition of "Two of Us" by The Beatles, the ass-shaking boogie of The Glasspack's version of the AC/DC prize "Rock and Roll Singer," and the crusty spin Orange Goblin places on The Damned's "New Rose" for just a fraction of the Hessian highlights you'll ingest from this collection.

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.
