At A Glance
The follow-up to "Blue Cathedral" is an earthy, more accessible, and downright beautiful album. "Avatar" veers from swinging, bluesy explorations to piano-laced, progressive power balladry to pure tribalism, evoking everyone from the Allmans to Quicksilver to Procol Harem to some insane Fela/Sun Ra/Crazy Horse hybrid, yet remains wholly Comets On Fire. Though they play cleaner and clearer, their firepower is evident and abundant.
This is the Bay Area band's third album and first for Sub Pop; it's also their most varied and richly textured. On "Blue Cathedral", their trademark modern psychedelic sound is enriched by more structured, keyboard-driven jams, churning out Blue Oyster Cult-ish chooglers and slow burners reminiscent of "Harvest"-era Pink Floyd. "Comets On Fire deserve our gratitude...for their distillation of all the best rock riffs since High Rise's take on Blue Cheer..."--Julian Cope.
