Karma to Burn [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Karma to Burn released one of the most original hard rock albums of 1997 with its fantastic self-titled debut. The West Virginia combo is usually associated with the "stoner rock" scene because of its reliance on '70s-style hard rock riffs, but unlike most bands in that genre, Karma to Burn merely dabbles in fuzzy distortion and psychedelia.

Karma to Burn released one of the most original hard rock albums of 1997 with its fantastic self-titled debut. The West Virginia combo is usually associated with the "stoner rock" scene because of its reliance on '70s-style hard rock riffs, but unlike most bands in that genre, Karma to Burn merely dabbles in fuzzy distortion and psychedelia. When guitarist William's somber tone and minor chords are combined with song titles like "Bobbi, Bobbi, Bobbi -- I'm Not God" and "Waltz of the Playboy Pallbearers," the result is both cryptic and hilarious. Singer J. Jarosz was only brought aboard as a compromise, and it shows, as his contribution is both unspectacular and largely unnecessary. In fact, the most interesting vocal contribution comes from the female voice on "Patty Hearst's Closet Mantra." The double parting shot of "Twin Sisters and Half a Bottle of Bourbon" and "Six" helps make this album a must-have for enthusiasts of original and challenging hard rock. [Metal Mind's 2008 Limited Edition included five bonus tracks.]
