A band from Germany. Must be some kind of power metal, I thought before I had heard the music of Red Aim. No, no and no. Red Aim are a spicy stoner rock/rock'n'roll act from Germany. They have already released quite a few albums, but this is the first one I get to hear so I can't really give a comment on their development to present day. Their groovy stoner rock is rather easy to get into, but it also lasts a lot of consecutive listens.

This kind of rock'n'roll isn't exactly my cup of tea, but the more I listen to the album the more it keeps on surprising me. Maybe they're not the most original band around but they certainly have managed to create some damn catchy and groovy tunes here. The first three tracks especially stand out; "Salamander" that builds up with the help of children's choir and an excellent chorus. "Almost Night Train" is one that instantly grabs you by the throat and never lets you go. "Ghost of Beluga" is yet again an exemplary tune for everyone wanting know how to just simply rock!

The production of the album is excellent. On the other hand it sounds like a sleazy garage-recording, but once you give it some thought you may notice the thick crunchy layers of guitars, the pounding drums and the Hammond-sounding organ that certainly adds a nice dose of freshness to the output. It is very difficult to find any weaknesses on this album, at least for me since I found none.
