WE - "Lightyears Ahead" CD-EP
(Black Ballon Records)
From Aural Innovations #24 (July 2003)
Wow... that is all I can sayÖ WE are back with some ass kickiní rock and roll and heavy psychedelic stuff. The ZuZu- Intro starts with some weird noises and then the stadium crowd can be heard as the Rolling Stones, no I mean WE... hit the stage. Kickiní is a totally Rolling Stones rock and roll number. It is a simple but effective song and could be a hit for the band. RíNíR (I put my Life) is next and is down and dirty blues, nasty rawly produced rock song with some cool slide guitar. Love that dirty raw sound. Hit the road jack!!!!!!! Lost Crossroad Found is a very interesting song. Inspired by Lost Highway by David Lynch, perhaps. This song has a killer slow groovy slidiní groove and just builds into an incredible song. I was blown away. I canít wait to hear this one live! The mirror image of Lost Crossroad Found is a 2 minute freaky, spacey intro into the best song WE have ever constructed, Freak Capital Of The Universe. This is a 13 minute journey to the Freak Capital and closes the 3rd chapter of a Trilogy of songs that includes the Galactic Race Track and the Last Stronghold Of The Freaks. Amazing stuff from WE.
