Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Black Mountain" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by Canadian hard rock/psychadelic rock act Black Mountain. The album was released through Jagjaguwar in January 2005. "Black Mountain" features 8 tracks and a total playing time of 46:27 minutes. Black Mountain is a five-piece act with guitars, bass, drums and keyboards as the main instruments (there is a bit of sax on the album too). There are both male and female vocals on the album.

The music on the album is late 60s/early 70s retro styled rock. A band like Jefferson Airplane comes to mind very often during the album´s playing time. Black Mountain is not a Jefferson Airplane clone though (Amber Webber is nowhere near Grace Slick in attitude and skills, although she is a decent enough vocalist). The musicianship are generally strong on the album and the interactions between the male and the female vocalists work well. I wouldn´t call the music on the album groundbreaking in any way but the quality of the material is pretty decent.

The album features an organic sound production, which provides the music with an authentic retro sound. So the album is a quality release on most parameters, but the lack of an original sound is a minor issue and it´s not all tracks that stand out equally much either, which is another slight issue. Fans of late 60s/early 70s retro styled rock and especially fans of Jefferson Airplane should probably find lots to enjoy there though. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

3 stars This is a pretty solid attempt at modern psychedelic rock, clearly influenced by Black Sabbath and Jefferson Airplane. The music is mainly slow to mid-tempo with fat, syrupy guitars dominating the proceedings. The vocals alternate between male and female. The lead singer and songwriter, Stephen McBean has a decent voice, but I much prefer the vocals of his counterpart, Amber Webber. Her voice has a slightly hazy, drugged out quality that would be disturbing in a friend, but works well with the music. Actually, her singer rather reminds me of Judy Garland for reasons I can't quite explain. And that's a good thing.

Standout tracks include Don't Run Our Hearts Around, a slow metal dirge that picks up steam towards the end and rocks far harder than anything else on the record. Also, Set Us Free and Heart of Snow are attractive for their lyrical melodies and somewhat desperate delivery. You can feel the pain behind them. Unfortunately, these are balanced out by a few missteps like the overly cutesy Modern Music and the downright bad No Hits. Still, it's an enjoyable record and somewhat of a refreshing throwback in these modern times.

2 stars 'Black Mountain' - Black Mountain (3/10)

The debut record from this Vancouver-based psychedelic hard rock band, 'Black Mountain' starts the group of the same name on a three album journey that would arguably culminate with a song of theirs being featured on a Spiderman movie soundtrack. In any case, they have remained of interest to the psych rock underground, although if this debut is much of an indicator as to the quality of the rest of their music, I would be hard pressed to figure out why. Over the course of eight tepid tracks, Black Mountain presents themselves as a mix of recycled retro rock riffs and new school indie whine. Although a few of the less songwriting-based elements of the band's sound show a glimmer of promise, 'Black Mountain' has left me feeling doubtful about whether or not checking out the rest of the band's work is worth it at all.

Although travelling back to the 70's or 60's is a fairly stapled trait with so-called progressive rock, there are usually other things going on in the music that make it worth the trip. Black Mountain starts off their album with a plodding indie rock mess of songs, starting with 'Modern Music' and, where the painfully simplistic blues riffs, poorly executed tenor saxophone, and a whiny drone of a vocal performance going off about some equally poor lyrics. Hearing what sounds like a de-clawed Arcade Fire sing a fairly meaningless sequence of numbers makes me cringe, and the male to female vocals here constantly sound like a pathetic knock off of that band.

Luckily, Black Mountain begins to break out of their pathetic retro indie rock sound by the time 'No Hits' rolls around, and while the last three songs are still nothing special, they do show some promise as hymns of retro psychedelia. 'Heart Of Snow' is without a doubt, the greatest thing that the band offers here, a slow and simple acoustic track that finally uses the female vocals somewhat well, and carries some melancholic emotion to it. But with so much throwback hippie nonsense to speak of on the record, there is little to no reason to recommend it to anyone. I can only hope that Black Mountain focuses on their more successful traits with their future albums, or I can expect to write some more negative things about them, if at all.
