Album Review by Joseph Timmons: Xombiewoof Magazine
I am not usually one to be overly judgmental of bands that have very young members with flashy art covers, I try not to be a “Music Snob”, but in honesty, 9 out of 10 times, the music is just not up to snuff, there may be great emotion, but the content is bland or the music is over sampled, the music scene is filling with so many wanna be bands with stars in their eyes and no talent in their bones.
When it comes to ACIDIC, I am SO WRONG it makes me want to revisit all the reviews I have ever written, and see where I became so jaded.
The album Creatures by ACIDIC is a fantastic romp through the energy of youth, something that can be forgotten and is only experienced by the young in body, spirit and mind. These are four very talented and exuberant young men that have some serious potential to make some big noise on the stage.
CREATURES is ACIDIC’s third collaboration with multi-platinum award-winning producer John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers), and the follow-up to previous albums, 2013’s “Copper Man” and 2011’s “Chronic Satisfaction".
ACIDIC are Mike Gossard, Matt Whitaker, Josh Bennett, Max Myrick, and they are already making some waves in the scene, playing literally all over the US and between the local halls and the multiple festivals, leaving behind many satisfied concert goers everywhere.
High powered and spunky rhythms, connected lyrics and music that flows like the perfect wave on a summer’s day, ACIDIC is on a feeding frenzy.
Top Songs in my pick are “Chicago”, “ROLL.X”, “Rad”, “Pop 2”, “Beautiful”, “My Town” and “Miles from Home”.
There is a very spirited anthem in this album, one that shines inside, like the warmth you feel on your face looking into the sun, with your toes in the sand feeling like you could live forever, or walking hand in hand with the one you love, yes, I know overly soppy and way too poetic…. Hell, you listen to Creatures and tell me I’m wrong, I seriously doubt you could.
Anyway, get the album Creatures, crank it up and find a spot for yourself in the eternal summer vacation that life can be!
