So how do you start with reviewing this album? Well, it helps a little I suppose to put it in perspective with their self-titled 1st album, which fans came to call "Blue Garden" because that's the title of the painting on the cover. It was straight ahead blues-rock at its finest. To Chris Goss's credit (and let's face it, he IS Masters of Reality), it sounded like it could have been recorded in 1970 (albeit with improved recording technology), though it was released in 1988. Just after New Wave died and just before grunge. This album was a kick-ass and refreshing stand-out-in-the-crowd album that unfortunately got lost in the Sea of Overproduced Hair Bands. You can still spot used copies on the original Def Jam label, though they are pricey. It's been re-released a couple times in the U.S. and reissues are easier to come by.
The 2nd album, released in 1993, was Goss's shining moment to many fans. "Sunrise On The Sufferbus" (MoR's first on a "respected" label -- and I use that word respected very loosely) actually got some radio airplay for a few weeks with the song "She Got Me When She Got Her Dress On." The album sounded like it could have been recorded by Cream. Goss wrote and produced songs to achieve this effect, even emulating Jack Bruce a bit in his vocal delivery on the album. In the ultimate coup, he hired Ginger Baker as part of the band, who laid down some mighty drum tracks the way only Baker could. After the album tanked, Chris Goss and Chrysalis Records had a parting of the ways. Goss would eventually have to sue Chrysalis for control of his music so Sunrise could be re-released. He finally won, and it's widely available now.
Now on to this album, "Welcome To The Western Lodge.

as far as masters of reality go, i have their first cd and this latest one. perhaps their second cd "sunrise on the sufferbus" is a work of genius. i wouldn't know. so why all of the flak and bad reviews for this disc? i realize that this is a chris goss solo album masquerading as a masters of reality disc, but is "sufferbus" really THAT great? some people just seem to be so disappointed by this disc. what i hear on this cd reminds me of the goss produced queens of the stoneage's "r" cd, both production and songwise. namely, cool sound effects and chromatic chord changes. a little like what the melvins did on their "stag" disc. these songs stick in my mind and i have no problem with the production. i don't understand why there's so much negativity tword this cd. i think it's a very good listen and the only problem that i have with it is that the running time is a little short at 38 mins. i think that fans of the queens of the stoneage and "stag" style melvins will really like what they hear. fans of cream, robin trower, mahogany rush, etc., etc., may not be so pleased.

This record is a classic piece of dense, inspired, and very weird stoner rock. It's simply not easily categorizable in the vast sub-genres of heavy music. If you don't like your Sabbath crossed with a touch of Beefheart, if you can't fathom the fathomlessness, don't bother. These lines from "Take A Shot At The Clown" [a slower track which comes complete with a tune seemingly borrowed from some evil carousel] sum up the entire MOR ethic for me..."He prayed once to God, God gave him the nod...Just do what you do, we're laughing at you". Spectacularly strange. You get it or you don't. Not for complainers.

A colorful grab-bag of ragged, inventive hard rock.

Gravelly, raw and fuzzy, these pithy songs bounce and rattle along groovily, propelled by some fabulously moronic drumming. There's a psychedelic tang, with excursions into jangling folk and eerie spaciness.

Sweeteners are mellotron, fairground organ, and vocal layering and fx. The catchy lyrics are generally impenetrable: no problem, given Chris Goss' (who essentially is Masters of Reality) addictively creamy, winking voice.

Highlight is the sunset loveliness of twinkling ballad 'Lovers Sky.'
