5.0 out of 5 stars The Meadow rocks hard - again March 5 2005
By SystemStructure - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Profound and awesome! Good, good rocking tunes with a different angle this time. Rather than repeat the same formula they took a lighter, more spacious tone on this one with emphasis on twang and vocal delivery. It's Dead Meadow with a slightly different sound and it still blows away nearly all of the musical flotsam which clogs the airwaves these days. "Heaven" is a new take on one of their best songs. Get this, love it. One of America's best bands straight from the nations capitol Washington D.C.! Music for a spiritual adventure or a soul quest. For fans of Led Zepp and/or Tom Petty.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Forsaken Garden May 5 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SpacemenSabbathRideZeppelinVerveFloyd. There. Now that the mandatory nod to this album's stylistic forbears is out of the way, we can move on to just how phenomenally _good_ it is. While looking at various reviews of _Feathers_ recently, I was struck how no two reviewers seem to agree on which song is the "highlight" or "centerpiece." That's telling of the kind of depth and consistency that this disc possesses--any one of about five different songs on it could have been the keystone of a lesser release.

On _Feathers_, Dead Meadow accomplish the rare feat of taking readily-identifiable influences and crafting something satisfyingly new out of them. It's not really revivalism, nor is it tongue-in-cheek; it's deep, sincere, and massively heavy work in the grand (and surprisingly vital) tradition of dark psychedelia. Having never heard them before, I was expecting at best a worshipful cultist's recreation of Sonic Boom's guitar tone or Blue Cheer's production values, but instead I got..well, listen for yourself. The record needs little further cheerleading.

As an aside, I see little basis for some people's grousing about how DM have "sold out." It's just the kind of I-was-there-first sanctimoniousness that happens whenever a cult band threatens to break out with a broadly appealing album. I haven't heard a lot of earlier Dead Meadow, but what I have heard sounds rather brittle, aimlessly repetitive, and undisciplined compared to _Feathers_.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Feathers July 13 2006
By J. Rossi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is all about space. Not space in a 'Hey, we sing about the cosmos and have a bunch of weird saltellite sounds everywhere,' but space as in wide open expanses. Where DM's previous albums were dense and earthy, "Feathers" is airy and open and somehow a little bit higher in the sky than its previous efforts.

Case in point is opener 'Let's Jump In.' It's starts off sounding like DM in that the wah pedal is in full effect, but you'd have a hard time distinguishing four musicians. Then about 2/3 through a teriffic and sudden shift comes in and Jason Simon's vocals take a back seat to some serious soloing over a two chord dirge in the background. In that respect, the song is quintessential DM.

But DM touch on several different styles here. 'Such Hawks Such Hounds' is a breezy-yet-forboding jaunt; 'Get up on Down' starts with a shimmering guitar crescendo, settles down into a lightly-layered movement for a while, threatens to disintigrate entirely then comes full circle at the end. Lead single 'At Her Open Door' is nothing more than a pop song with two interlaced guitar figures, but it doesn't sound forced.

There's no mistaking this for anything but DM, but the band has infused different elements into their trademark style that was delectable but becoming staid.

This version of 'Heaven' pales to the one on "Shivering King" but fits well here; 'Eyeless Gaze/Riverman' resurrects classic DM in a two-part suite; 'Stacy's Song' dabbles in some of the Jesus and Mary Chain's quieter moments and sounds like nothing DM have done before, but it suits the band well.

That's why this review emerges so long after the release: This is the band's growth spurt and maturation, and you can't apsorb a piece of work like that in one or two or 30 listens. But give this album even six or eight spins and its subtle nuances will grab you.

In that regard 'Let it all Pass' may be the apex on this album -- it starts off sounding like some other songs on "Feathers" but then mixes those elements with class DM as the song chugs to a close. The drum circle thunder of 'Through the Gates' would be a throwaway, save that it segues seamlessly into one of the band's live versions of 'Sleepy Silver Door,' and a flawless version at that.

"Feathers" my not immediately entice old fans or newcomers, but over time it emerges as another musical gem from one the best bands around.
