The Great Sabatini – Goodbye Audio


On the surface this is a well-recorded and played album of Melvins-inspired music. However, what sets it apart is the fact that the songs are strong. If they were to be played acoustically they would still work – the sign always of a good song. Moreover, the band have their own identity, and I can see a lot of music fans warming to this. Definitely a band that deserves to be better known.
