Non-Prog CD Reviews



Review by Eric Meli

Honky is trio from Austin, Texas who bill themselves as a psychedelic super boogie type band, but to me it seems that there are more elements to their sound than just that. 421 is Honky’s newest release and is full of well crafted songs that keep me listening over and over again. In fact, I think I found my new favorite CD.

Track by Track Review

The disc’s opener is a full-on onslaught of guitar.

Just A Man
This one starts with an AC/DC kind of style and then changes to a bit of a psychedelic sound.
Riddle Cap
“Alluring” would be a good word to describe this song.
I kind of get an Alice Cooper vibe from this song.
Walton County
A cool song, there’s almost a psychedelic quality to it.
The title track is a rocking instrumental with a great groove.
All For Nothin'
A slow hypnotic song, this drags me into its web.
Over Easy
Think ZZ Top at their dirtiest and you’ll be close to the sound of this track.
Woke Up Dead
I could just picture a bluesman doing this track in a dirty old juke joint.
Handful Of Nails
There's a nice slice of Texas super boogie on this cut.
Black Joes's Bitch
It’s a love song, well kind of anyway.
