    [ Geezer Lake ]


    Feet in Mud

    This record sounds a bit rough and the vocals are almost not present, but the music simply is incredible. The songs weave and wind through a wide open maze of confusing passages and sparsely populated fields; switching moods in between expeditions and capitalizing on the listeners point of view. Basically, a wonderful album for candles, rice, incense and poetry. Plus there are some really disturbing samples.

      Geezer Lake-Hearts Won't Try This  

    Hearts Won't Try This, picks up where Feet in Mud Again left off. This time the band has a better sounding recording and have done more production wise. The songs are more together, which may or may not be a positive thing depending upon where you are coming from.

    The first two tracks are by far my favorite Geezer Lake tunes. I cannot get the driving bass line out of my head from the second track. I lost the CD back so i do not have the song titles at my disposal. But this record has really pushed Geezer Lake out of the local band stage and into the national touring circuit. The instrument execution has greatly improved since the first record, as have the ideas behind the songs.

    The vocals finally make their presence known on Hearts.

    The melodies and harmonies are exquisite as well as the rhythmic interplay between the drums and the rest of the band.

    Harrison Cannon even uses an upright bass on a few tracks. But do not be mislead, Hearts Won't Try This, is still Geezer Lake and still has that wide open dirty grinding sound with a nice glaze of calmness and serenity sprinkled subtly on top.

    Hearts Won't Try This is like a huge soft vanilla ice cream cone smattered with sprinkles. But inside the rather oversized indulgement lies a piece of rusted metal.
