    Like an appetizer for the main course that will be the second Black Mountain disk, Axis of Evol tastes great, but doesn't fill you up. A fun mix of acoustic spirituals, and fuzzy programmed beats, the album feels like getting stoned and playing music on your father's four-track on a boring sunday.

  1. Axis of Evol may not be a great album. It remains prey to some of McBean’s obnoxious corner-cutting. But it is his most resolute outing to date, certainly the first record he’s made that can be heard front-to-back, repeatedly, without losing most of its shine.
  2. A set of tracks that sound akin to an amalgamation of John Frusciante's early solo work and the great Skip Spence.
  3. Although this isn't the masterpiece that the self-titled Black Mountain disc was, it certainly gives devotees lots more music to listen to until their next disc comes around.
