"This second long-player continues to explore the psychedelic and classic rock templates with which they worked on their s/t debut, an incendiary mix of self-aware stoner jams ('Spacewash') and progressive rock time shifts ('Cold Comfort') that recall each of the musicians' previous projects. For most of the 1990s, Dave Brylawski and Steve Popson played in (the recently-reunited) Polvo. In the late 1990s, Grant Tenille joined Brylawski in the primarily folk-inflected Idyll Swords. While many bands in the current hard rock revival mindlessly ape their idols, Black Taj deliver an intelligent updating of these conventions, and prove again that the twin guitar attack of Thin Lizzy and the muscular riffing of early ZZ Top still has legs. If you have been wondering what one-half of Polvo has been up to over the last decade, look no further."
