Humus - Humus (1994)
The second album from this Mexican band.
Humus was a sextet with a lineup of guitars, synths, bass, piano and drums.
I reviewed their 1992 debut album Tus Oidos Mienten three weeks ago and liked that album. You can find my review here.
Humus is a psych/space rock band. They are also a very obscure band who has released seven albums. The cover artwork on those albums are as eclectic as the cover artwork for this album, see the painting above.
This album is forty minutes long. It gives us a mix of space rock and some more eclectic music. All of it is instrumental. Well, everything here is psych rock, but also with some experimental metal and rock too.
The guitars is sometimes very harsh and distorted. There are also some nicer half-acoustic guitars here.
There is a lot of ideas here. Ideas which is not particular developed. It seems like this is an album of ideas and not an album of end products. It is a drawing more than a painting, if you get my drift.
The album is decent enough, but just that. It is also a step in the wrong direction from the debut album. I hope the other albums is better than this one. I will soon find out.
