We'll have more on the EP in next week's paper, but until then, take a listen to the song "Mystic Haze" and after the jump, read a sneak-preview snippet of Christian Schaeffer's review. After listening to the five songs, Chris is right: LOGOS sounds like Pearl Jam ca. Ten crossed with Rush -- and that's a good thing, in my book.
At first blush, all the classic-rock set pieces are in place on this five-song EP: the trio uses double-neck guitar, tricky tempo changes, and even pulls out a Frampton-esque talk-box solo on “Mystic Haze,” a song that resolves after a few minutes of serious high-necked riffage. Singer and guitarist Cullen O’Donnell and bassist Zach Czajkowski are only eighteen, but have already digested a lifetime’s worth of riffs and poses. O’Donnell’s vocals are strong and confident, veering a bit more towards modern rock’s Vedder-fied modulations than Robert Plant’s wails and screeches.
