For the last couple of years, Clutch have slowly been heading towards a much more bluesy direction then their earlier work and it all came together perfectly of Beale St to Oblivion. Here though it's pulled back a bit more, now with the organ gone and everything focusing more on the guitars. Not a bad album, but a lot of the quirkiness that makes Clutch who they are is gone here making this album seem a little less interesting. Worth hearing, but missing a lot of the aspects of something like Elephant Riders. An easy album to skip completely.
