Final Gravity

Title - 'And the Earth Bleeds'
Artist - Erik Scott

Here on And the Earth Bleeds, former Alice Cooper bassist Erik Scott explores unconventional terrain filled with the mystical and haunting sounds of gypsy violins, celtic melodies, steel guitar, and fretless bass ala Pink Floyd. And always with the deep groove of a space-age swamp.

Yup, I had no idea what 'space-age swamp" music was until I heard this incredible album, trust me! But once you get to grips with it you know it's a highly-addictive musical winner, that's for sure.

The first track is 'Gypsy Mother and the Royal Bastard,' and is one that orchestrally sweeps in the other tracks in a very ceremonial manner. 'Free' hits the Celtic spot very nicely, before the gentle tom tom sway of the title track is upon us.

'Weightless' is next, with 'Loco Amour (I Could Be Crazy)' following along behind it. The lyrics are unexpected, but delightful when heard alongside the lush orchestration overall. Performing all the bass work, generated sound FX, keyboards and drum programming himself, the Celtic appeal is back for 'The Battle for Neverland,' with the vocal 'Let's Do Something Cool,' the freeflowing beauty of 'Run,' and then finally 'The White Mouse' bringing this wonderful, truly wonderful album to a close.
