Building upon their past releases, with The Return of the Sun Kings, the band has achieved a uniquely rich organic connection with each instrument an essential ingredient in achieving a majestic internal coherence. Today’s featured song, Getting Higher, is the album’s midpoint and a full-bodied THC-induced workout. Carried rhythmically with its head nodding backbeat, the track quickly opens up to a wall of tasty phychedelic sound, dipped in a drastic elements while keeping a consistent melodic heart.
Black Leather was my introduction to these guys then the awesome Tom Boy, blistering Serpentine and cool as s Medicine Man. This album should've sold 5 maybe 10 million copies, not a bad track on it and still holds up to this day. If crappy Poison can sell millions of their garbage not to mention phony ass Nickelback, then I can only blame marketing because these guys had a great, edgy hard rock sound with attitude that would be welcome and fresh sounding if played on today's rock stations.
