The Pink Mountaintops are the solo brainchild of Vancouver musician Stephen McBean, who is also a member of ramshackle rockers Black Mountain. The Mountaintops' second album expands on the lo-fi promise of its predecessor, with nods to sonic explorers like the Velvet Underground on "Cold Criminals," post-punk outfits like Sonic Youth on "New Drug Queens," and anyone who's ever had too much acid on "Plastic Man, You're the Devil." Though McBean's songs occasionally seem like casually tossed-off rock & roll vignettes, their unabashed hedonism is addictive.
Uncut (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] downbeat, solipsistic but utterly beautiful amalgam of mood-altering substances and 1980s alt.rock; the nod to Sonic Youth in the title is no coincidence."
Magnet (p.110) - "[S]et to dirty-needle Velvets rumbles, Jesus And Mary Chain chainsaw squall and ghastly slow-motion psychedelia that could scare fellow acid-fried freaks Dead Meadow and the Gris Gris into rehab."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Informed by a life in music and smart enough to count higher than his influences, McBean remains a fascinating prospect whatever colour mountain he comes round."
