Editorial Reviews

"Lupus Pilum Mutat, Non Mentem" - The wolf may change its fur, but not its nature. This is the sen-timent that runs throughout the new six (6) track album I, Vigilante. It encompasses words of warn-ing and tales of trouble from times past up to the present, songs of standing your ground and stories from our history, for it is only through history we truly exist.

This is one of my favorite albums because I feel like CBP does something very unique in it. The band has a very distinct feel within the first four tracks of the album, which are groove and jam heavy, with emphasis on repetition to add post to the music. I like this approach very much in this case because they use enough variation to keep the songs from getting stagnant. This album is very balanced because of this. I think the last two tracks have a very different feel, based on classic rock, I think. I don't like track five, but I love the vocals. I think it reminds me of Heart a bit. Track six, though, is really cool. Very seventies. Nice theme in the song.

This album is very special. I think the band pulls off a lot of things in it that don't work well unless they are treated in just the right way. I have the CD and the Vinyl record. I'll say the record plays very smoothly and has a great quality. The cover art looks really awsome as well, and the record sleeves seem sturdy. I'd recommend this record to lovers of rock and roll, instrumentation, and genre mixing.

I'm never a fan of sub-sub-sub-genre music (i.e "stoner folk post prog rock" or whatever most people categorize Crippled Black Phoenix) - but Crippled Black Phoenix are a complex band who are truly difficult to label or describe. So in this case, "stoner folk post prog rock" (or whatever) might by an acceptable way to describe them!

I am an avid fan of instrumental/post rock), and although Crippled Black Phoenix incorporate lyrics, they are not overwhelming or distracting. The lyrics don't take away from the music - the music is very experimental, incorporating strings, keys, horns, etc. You can't directly compare them to anyone, but I would put them on the same playlist as artists like: A SIlver Mount Zion, The Appleseed Cast, EF, Junius, Cave In, or Midlake.

The only thing I don't understand is why the 1970's theme to Kelly's Heroes "Burning Bridges" is on the digital album I downloaded. It definitely threw me for a curve, but the album is still fantastic. I highly recommend this album, and will be delving into more Cripple Black Phoenix pronto.

Crippled Black Phoenix' album I, Vigilante is uneasy to categorize. The band produces on this album mostly a dark sound but ends with a very happy sounding song. The opening track "Troublemaker" is a mixture of quiet heavy guitar riffs combined with the psychedelic sound of the young Pink Floyd. The second track is an nearly 11 minute long epic called "We Forgotten Who We Are". The track starts like a smooth rippling brook and builds up to threatening wild river. At the end of the track it flows seamless into the third track "Fantastic Justice" which has the sound of a majestic river. Track 4 "Bastogne Blues" starts with spoken words from an (English?) soldier about a German soldier he had to kill. His words are larded with spooky dentist-like sounds. It's the central epic (12 minutes) from this album and is a track that "grows" the more you listen to it. The fifth track "Of a Lifetime" is a ballad-like rock song (more or less in the vein of the band "Boston") it sounds completely different from the other tracks. The final track is in time the shortest (2:31) and it's called Burning Bridges and it doesn't seam to fit in the album. It sounds like the psychedelic Brazilian band "Os Mutantes" on their album "Technicolor".
A somewhat strange album but I like it a lot!
