Masters Of Reality - ‘Pine Cross / Dover’

Masters Of Reality - ‘Pine Cross / Dover’ Cover

MOR have never been the heaviest mob in town...

Chris Goss’s veteran Seventies-obsessive collective have been digging into some more hipshaking than usual territory for their fifth album. Goss says Matavishu Orchestra and Public Image Limited are the chief inspirations, and you can see what he means in the record’s many expansive instrumentals, offset by claustrophobic loops of murderous bass. But for all their Sabbath-referencing ways, MOR have never been the heaviest mob in town, and some of the best moments here come not from death disco, but the real deal: somewhere around the funky core of 12-minute closer ‘Alfafa’ you’ll feel the need to strut, and hard.
