Neil Kernon strikes again, turning an excellent Coldwave act into nothing more
than a glorified Metal band. Gone are the grinding electronics and the
melodic sequences. Instead, the Clay People have gone the way of the commercial
Rock industry and scrapped all of their electronics. Even the reworked version
of 'Mechanized Mind' doesn't due justice to the original version
produced by George Hagegeorge of Urania on "Stone Ten-Stitches". The only
remnant of this once great band lies in the stunning vocals of Dan Neets.
Even amidst the sundry backdrop of power chords and guitar solos, Dan still
entices us with he gruff throatwork. His vocals alone are the only thing saving
this album from being yet another Alternative Rock band of the week. One can
only wonder if the Clay People are now doomed to Rock infamy, or can they drag
themselves back from this heinous effort with the next release?
Clay People are: Brian McGarvey & Daniel Neet
