The Eternals Heavy International
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: Aesthetics
The postmodern rhythm junkies return with a whirring dose of dubbed soul and funked-up jazz that will probably do nothing to further categorize either their sound or their legacy. "Am I moving forward?" frontman Damon Locks wonders in the rambling "Astra 3B," and the answer to his question seems to be "yes." "Patch of Blue" buzzes with skewered beats, while the sedate activism of "Feed the Youth (Stage a Coup)" and "Too Many People (Do the Wrong Thing)" could form the backbone to the most chilled of revolutions. A head-scratcher for sure, but one with depth.
