MIDWEST RECORD REVIEW

COYOTE POETS OF THE UNIVERSE/Strange Lullaby: The Colorado jam band that nobody can seem to pin a tag on is showing the 60s are alive and well. All the young ‘uns miss the point in that there's a Jefferson Airplane meets a ‘we ain't commercial' hippie 60s vibe colliding here that makes it all feel like an acid trip. Mixing in some 60s roots music to complete the effect, this is a great two disc soundtrack for those times when you want to know how it feels to get small and get mellow. While this is no recidivist, hippy dippy trip, it's prog psychedelic chops may want to make you frolic naked in the mud uncontrollably or inexplicably. Crazy stuff that's a wonderful antidote for crazy times.
