Non-Prog CD Reviews

Scotty Seed


Review by Gary Hill

The music here is definitely hard to pin down. We get electronic dance music on a couple of the tracks. Even then, the two numbers show decidedly different sides of that sound. The other song is a space rock tinged, punk rocking, grunge styled piece. While this is all starkly different, somehow it works together in a quirky way.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2019  Volume 2. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
Faust (I Can't Escape)
Electronic techno textures open this, and it works out to an EDM dance number that has a real Prodigy vibe to it in a lot of ways. This is energized and rather weird, but in an intriguing way.
Starting a bit more in melodic ways, this has more of a mainstream EDM vibe. It almost reminds me of something like The Buggles in some ways. I like this one more than I liked the opener, and that one definitely had its charms.

Now, this is completely different. It isn't even an EDM kind of number at all. It's an echoey rocker that has some space rock along with grunge and punk built into it. Personally, I think that it might have made more sense to put this one between the other two tracks, to separate the two that are more similar. Then again, when it's only three songs, sequence is only so critical. This is an angry tune that has a real edge to it.
