    Cosy Moments moves slightly toward pop-and-hook than the last Kinski album did, but more than maintains its integrity as an outsized purveyor of aggressive guitar rock.

    This is Kinski’s most straightforward rock album, and certainly the Kinski album with the best, most concise vocal songs. If anything, the cranked-up, low-tempo instrumentals are now where the band fares worst.

    The band’s timbres are more distinctive than its songs, which means that even the shorter tunes are best when they let the instruments do the talking.

    The first half of Cosy Moments may pale placed next to Alpine Static, but for those who may be put off by that album’s sprawl and punch, Cosy Moments prolongs the slightly gentler, less fuzzy nature of this restless sonic beast.

    Chris Martin’s voice is unremarkable but inoffensive on the non-instrumentals, and while some of Cosy’s tones are satisfying, they don’t redeem its shortcomings.

    The charmingly-titled "Skim Milf" and unwittingly apt "Riff DAD" epitomize the band's predilection for chopping out any of the exploratory sounds of their earlier work in lieu of mercifully short, chugging dad rock riffs.

    Workmanlike from start to finish, only the brain-stretchers bear lasting distinction.
