Giant Crab - Cool It...Helios (1969)

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 1:34 AM

Consistent follow-up by late sixties soul drenched sunny popsike crew.
With eight short FM-formatted songs per side this seems like their ultimate (or desperate) grasp for stardom. Except for the 1st narrated 'soundtrack' intro, the songs definitely sound chart-friendly and obviously bear strong hit-potential; some tracks should have been, some might have been, but most simply weren't, which is a shame because they're all compact and cleverly composed. The main themes emphasise won and lost love and the obvious sikedelik escapism from it all. A big plus goes to the vocals which are crystalline clear, powerfully strong and lavishly arranged. A professionally produced and remarkably fresh sounding album.
