Simplicity in the hands of masters can be deceptive. A seemingly simple song can squeeze complex stories into a bottle. Decades in the making, through hard lessons learned on the outskirts of notoriety, this album was largely recorded in just a few days. Not all of those lessons have been taken seriously. Some of them were outright ignored, as if by naughty dogs best swatted by a rolled up newspaper. Longtime fans have come to marvel at the kind of thoughtful revelations lurking within these songs; qualities here can teach many a teenage wannabe rocker what youthful exuberance truly means.
Thirty years can Gehenna - The Cynics - Spinning Wheel Motel in a flash; for some, it is a lifetime. At some point, in my listening of this album, it occurred to me; two guys have kept the name of The Cynics true for over two decades. What does that take?
Adherence to a principle: Gehenna - The Cynics - Spinning Wheel Motel songs of meaning, stick to the fewest chords possible. The quality of Jim Diamond's recording here is as taut as the rhythm section's playing. You would think that such discipline would result in monotony. Instead, long-term fans have been treated to continually surprising revelations.
The New album by The CYNICS is a spinning, whirling, joyous dance into rock n' roll's traditions and contradictions and has the immediacy of a singular, impromptu performance. Decades pass in a cymbal crash, a lifetime is portrayed in a three-minute ditty.
