Ian Astbury – High Time Amplifier


Single Review by EDF

Taken from Astbury’s album SPIRIT/LIGHT/SPEED this single does not help promote the album. It starts off well enough until the crunching guitar riff, sounding like it’s being put through the electronic shredder, try’s to be like Nine Inch Nails but ends up virtually killing the song. The lyric and tune, if you can find them, goes nowhere.

Other tracks to be found on the single are TYGER in its demo form to the one found on the album and also a remix of HIGH TIME AMPLIFIER by Witchman. TYGER is a bit strange while the Witchman Mix is not bad.

The Cult will be releasing an album in 2001.
