“Pine/Cross Dover” by Masters of Reality

It’s been 5 years since Masters of Reality’s last album, the folk inspired Give Us Barabbas. Pine/Cross Dover takes a spin in the other direction, taking an entirely electric guitar approach. Chris Goss’ signature haze laced production adds an otherworldly spaciousness to each song. You can feel that the boys are having fun with each track, the drums being especially perky and in the forefront. From the raw groove of “King Richard TLH” to the 12 minute spaced-out jam session album ender “Alfalfa“. There are a few dark moments and some lively jams that hint at some of MoR’s previous works, but manage to stand out completely on their own.

Masters of Reality have set out to create an album they haven’t done before. Chris Goss proves once again that he can make some killer music. The stoner rock god is back! Electric, eccentric and eclectic: Pine/Cross Dover is Masters of Reality’s strongest and strangest album yet.
