Thomas Pridgen is one of the great young drummers of the past few years and The Memorials is his new band after his killer stint in The Mars Volta. The music here is mostly seventies infused progressive rock with a strong emphasis on grooves overlayed with space rock vocals. The mix and production is a little raw and sometimes there is a tendency for overindulgence that lessens the impact of some of the songs. Thomas Pridgen is playing great as usual but the material here isn't memorable enough overall to make it a classic album. Highlights include the blistering opening song "We Go To War", the progressive sound of "Natural Disaster", the intense vibe of "Westcoast", and the hallucinating feel of "Give Me The Stuff". Thomas Pridgen and The Mars Volta were a musical match made in progressive rock heaven and both parties have down graded in quality as a result of the split. Although the debut album by The Memorials isn't groundbreaking I can still recommended it to fans of progressive rock and awesome drumming.

I found out about The Memorials like most people via Thomas Pridgen and his involvement in Mars Volta. I personally am not a fan of that band but after seeing one of his Thomas' clinics on YouTube and his energy and destruction of the beat I had to know "WHAT SONG IS HE PLAYING!". Turns out the song was "West Coast" which lead me to the band and this album. This album channels so much of the past and is a bright hope for the future. I hear elements from artists such as Living Colour, Mahavatar, James Gang, Jimi Hendrix, and some James Jamerson which is a hard blend. Most people will talk about the tracks "We Go To War", and "West Coast" and I agree that they are hard hitting, fun and enjoyable and make the album fun to listen too.

My favorite track of the album "Enough" is a love and breakup story that sounds like a funk song but is really a conversation with former lovers. Set against a bounce type, funk metal groove the sound mirrors the same emotion and intensity we hear from the vocalist and propels into this anger filled love affair. As you enter the chorus the vocalists breaks into a haunting "stay with me please just stay with me" that moves the track to being more of a conversation. The bridge and break down evoke emotions of a blow up argument and the self reflection of a hurt lover with such lyrics as "it's masochistic but the pain is all I long for..." which showcases the anguish and loss you feel which is mirrored in the emotion in the vocalist's voice which shows her true, raw power and ability.

My other favorite track is "I Remember" which is an upbeat typical funk rock song. What sets this song apart again is the feeling I get from hearing the band and their sense of loss in the way they are playing.

This album is my rock album of the year. This power trio kicks in every aspects pro drums and guitar. Raw, dynamic vocals and energy for days and days. I look for not good things from The Memorials, but GREAT!

This album is SO GOOD! I listen to it in my car like every day. Every track is a new sound, truly unique rock music here... Anything from heavy odd-time breakdowns to driving party anthems, this album rocks from start to stop.
