Stoner Pop

Stoner Pop

Review by G. W. Hill
I have no question about putting this under "progressive rock." Other than the last tune this definitely fits. Even that one has some proggy elements. That said, this leans more toward modern music, and rather odd sounds. It has a strange pop element to it. Yet, it all works. This is definitely progressive music. It's also very cool.
Track by Track Review
Preachers

Space music, trippy psychedelia and weird pop all merge here. There is definitely an electronic vibe. As strange as this is, it almost feels catchy in some ways.

Running
Freaky electronic sounds are the idea here. This is quite experimental. It's tastefully odd. It's very much a weird prog kind of thing.
You're Never Listening (Get Over Yourself)
Even more electronic, this is really classy stuff. It's a bit industrial and techno.
Monsters
Perhaps a bit more mainstream and melodic, this is nonetheless tastefully strange. It's actually one of my favorites here in its trippy nature. The second half of the tune features some cool electronic jamming.
Fox
Piano leads us out here. There is a definite hip hop element at play on this thing. If there is a song here that's not prog, it's this. It's more of a cool pop tune with electronic and soulful leanings. It's also the only tune focusing mostly on male vocals.
