Fires Which Burn Brightly
After a four-year hiatus, Donovan's Brain returns with more brightly psychedelic pop.
Opener "The Same Mistakes" is a slightly sixties era evoking joyous pop cascade of some distinction. "You Gotta Go Now" is driven by ringing guitars and
a harmonic yet attitude-laden vocal. The band sounds right at home with it, as if they've never gone away. "Last Acid Rider" is typically dreamy yet trippy,
the band paying homage to the era of rebellion and change in a great fashion.
"I Saw Your Light" is a strong yet melancholy song that puts the emphasis on the band's melodic strength. It's an album worth treasuring, and they are a
band for the ages.
