Ghosts of the Russian Empire The Mammoth

Ghosts of the Russian Empire, your Mammoth album would more aptly be titled The Spectre of OK Computer. I know Radiohead are awesome and one can’t help but be influenced by them if attempting "artsy” pop rock in this day and age but if you keep biting their chord sequences because you can think of anything original, your guitarist probably deserves to lose his fret-board hand in a deep fryer accident. Don’t despair though, GOTRE, it’s not like you’re sloppy or technically inept; in fact the musicianship on The Mammoth is quite astute, because after all, OK Computer isn’t an easy album to pull off, and it sounds like that’s all you’re attempting to do. Please try again when you’re finished emulating your idols. (Thirty Ghosts)
