Opening KON TIKI with a jarring blast of backwards tapes, Cotton Mather launches into the euphoric jolt of "Camp Hill Rail Operator," sounding like a lost track from The Beatles' REVOLVER, and that's not the last time that obvious touchstone will surfaces here. Much, if not all, of this disc resembles that landmark recording. Though many have aped The Beatles down through the years, Cotton Mather brings something different to the table; an earnest passion, zeal and just plain old crunch that gives their performances life and urgency. Some may protest that this is an old, tired formula, but Cotton Mather makes it sound fresh and bright. It's some mighty handsome music from some mighty ugly guys.
