Editorial Reviews

Secret Chiefs 3 have been running covert operations for twelve years now. For a band that tosses their releases out into the mirage of human civilization with little or no fanfare, itOs no wonder that Secret Chiefs 3 have remained off the music medias radar, and have weathered innumerable musical fads without so much as a flinch. History has shown that the bulldozers will eventually come to break up cults like this, destroying their compound and seizing their weapons cache. Secret Chiefs 3 have therefore recognized the need to publicly gather some of their most universally recognizable doctrines into one affirming document. Path of Most Resistance is just such an offering to the public. Unbeknownst to too many, this music is lush, gigantic, heartfelt, and organic, and cant be written off as mere musical gymnastics. People who may not be so geeked-out on the sophisticated hologram of ancient Pythago-quasi-Dastgah or modern western poly-tonal temperaments going on in this music, who judge things more on just whether it's good listening or not, now have a clean welcome mat rolled out, and bodyguards to usher them past the scowling elites, past the annoying zealots, and straight to the garden where the heart of this music beats. Culled from SC3Os four main studio recordings, plus some enhanced CD bonus material (out-of-print live tracks, obscure cover versions, and two live videos), Path of Most Resistance will delight new and seasoned SC3 listeners alike.

Just fair warning--I did not study the amazon ad closely enough to deduce that this is just a greatest hits album. Great music, of course, but if you've got their CDs already....I burned up a quick $15 on it. There are added features, but if you're like me, with no time to watch DVD material, then it won't be worth it to you. There are only two tracks from the hard to find EYES OF FLAME album (including a live version of a song available on later albums), and there are three bonus tracks as well. That said--if you love MOD's Surfing USA, you may not be able to pass up SC3's Good Vibrations. Heroes is delightfully bizarre, and SC3 Christmas music will be a seasonal treat, just not the stuff you're itching to listen to repeatedly.

If you are not familiar with the band, just pick one of their previous records--then if you love it, you'll want the others anyway and won't duplicate purchases.

If you're a fanatic, well, you'll get it anyway, and enjoy!

To call this collection a "best of" is naming such a thing too soon, as those who have seen the Chiefs live on their more recent tours would attest. (If you don't believe me, I have two words for you: Brazen Serpent.) The tracks on this album constitute what I consider the signature sound of SC3, a mix of middle eastern instruments and surf rock with a heavy dose of interesting cover tunes. If you've been curious about the band but don't know where to start this is what you should be purchasing. You should be hooked soon after.

I was hoping for a little bit of an edge from a Trey Spruance led project and was very disapointed in what I heard.. I guess experimental is exactly that.. Thumbs down.
