MEAN STREET MAGAZINE Review of Brave New World
 


JANUARY 2008
VOL 18.06

INTODOWN
Brave New World
([intodown])

From its smoky, hazy cover art and liner note tagline of “down is an altered state of being, a different reality,” Dallas psychedelic rock act intodown makes no secret about its intentions to create a mind-bending experience cut from the same ‘60s cloth as Jimi Hendrix and 13th Floor Elevators. But the band’s Brave New World album is no mere nostalgic (LSD) flashback or pastiche. Moody and atmospheric enough for the Tool/Pink Floyd freaks but with enough stoner-friendly, sprawling arrangements (“Nostradamus” clocks in at nearly a dozen minutes) for the Sleep crowd, Brave New World takes you down a very pleasant rabbit hole.

Grade: A+
