String Cheese Incident
by: Peter Laursen, August '05
Label: InsideOut Music
Style: Jam Rock
rock is a phenomenon, which in
alone, already has a well established audience of millions. The String
Cheese Incident is a high calibre act from an emerging genre that
takes it's cues from The Grateful Dead, blues, jazz, country,
bluegrass, folk and rock 'n' roll, - it's difficult to categorize jam
rock - but I can tell you right away, that The String Cheese Incident
isn't hard rock or heavy metal!
me as a metal fan The String Cheese Incident is a bitter
disappointment! The music is a mix of "relaxed country
blues" on "Big Compromise", jazz style on "Rainbow
influenced on "Betray in the Dark", and when I listen to
track 7: "Drive" - then Dire Straits comes to mind. The
music is well crafted; no doubt about that, but this kind of music
just doesn't do much for me!
jam rock is your thing, then check these websites out: www.homegrownmusic.net
and www.jambase.com and do take a
listen to this album as well ... to all others - listen carefully
Recommended track: “Swampy Waters"
