Our Lady of the Broken Spine

by Reverend Glasseye



"If 2005 was a signifying year for the impending doom of scourge from above, then Reverend Glasseye's Our Lady of the Broken Spine should have been due its credit and made the soundtrack. As the third album from this amazing Boston band, Glasseye's latest release is an experimental stride, to say the least.
Not only have the songwriting and production progressed, the aesthetics have become finely-tune to a unique, impacting musical craft apt of truly altering the listeners' perspectives.

This is one more suitable for punk rock funerals or moonless carnivals. Wavering singing can often play off of the lyrics or manifest the crux of the dynamically narrated songs. Aside from Reverend Glasseye's vocal contributions, Piet Masone's vocal range and the female harmonics also add to the intoxicating madness of it all.

Horns of different calibers bring a rich booming to many tracks and provide a rolling force for others. Solid drumming from one of the young greats Tim Maher ignites every track. There's always a bad-ass frenzy of guitar and the bass stands out solidly-two factors definitely stood out to the crowd that voted Reverend Glasseye last year's winners of the notorious Boston Rock N' Roll Rumble.

In the end, Our Lady of the Broken Spine is a musical revival. I know I was led to it by a general apathy of musical output today-specifically that of the mainstream's. It's got everything going for it; this one is definitely worth its weight, whether it's in the car or at a party." - M. Maiero, Yahoo Voice.
