CREAM — Disraeli Gears (review)

2.5/5 ·
Warthur
This is what happens when you take the blues and you immerse it in acid under an atmosphere of weed smoke for a month. With psychedelia and blues in perfect balance - said balance embodied perfectly by the way opening track Strange Brew drifts off in a tie-dyed haze to be replaced by the grumbling blues riffs of Sunshine of Your Love - the album captures the spirit of its era in terms of its cover art and influences, but fails to provide equally exciting, colourful and diverse compositions. The closing goof-off Mother's Lament tries the patience a little, but how many will reach it when the preceding songs are such a turgid collection of drab dirges? As good as Sunshine of Your Love is, the album lacks the variety necessary to stop listening to it from becoming a chore.
