How good are these guys?!? That’s rhetorical by the way because the answer is obviously ……. AWESOME. I’ve been sitting on this album for way too long. This is Stoner Blues Psych at its creaminess with massively heavy overtones. It’s like Hendrix’s on steroids but with a way better voice. (no disrespect intended) I’m lovin’ the seventies’ vibe mixed with the new millennium drop-tune. The best of both worlds I’d say.
Favorite track: Paralyzed In Paradise.
This is one incredible album not a bad track to be found .I am having a problem pining their sound down. All the tags are here. Strong song writing ,vocals are outstanding. The musicianship top quality .I guess what I'm trying to say is that this record is good ,real good.
Favorite track: W.
Limestone Whale’s self-titled debut album is an eclectic record that combines intense heavy psych blues from the late 60s with driving hard rock elements from the early 70s and floating melodies in the vein of 90s alternative rock.
On their first full-length the young and experienced musicians convince with skillful songwriting and an unique and characteristic sound somewhere between the golden era of rock and modern approaches.
This album definitely is a breath of fresh air in the growing retro, psychedelic and stoner rock scene and because of its special getup the vinyl version is a highly recommended collector’s item, too!

I love the fusing of Pink Floyd and sludge metal grooves on this album. That description is true, but leaves out the crafty songwriting and personal touch inherent in the songs. Recommended. Tim Halbur

SGT Thunderhoof has become one of my favourite bands…..ever. And if I was held at gun point and asked which was my favourite albums from them, it would be this one, Ride of the Hoof. I listen to ST a lot but my go-to album is this one. If I’m not careful, I don’t give the other ST albums a fair go and that would just be depriving me of the greatness of all their other awesome tunes. With only a limited number of hours in the day, this posses quiet a conundrum. Harry Harrison
