Trippy Wicked: Going Home
Trippy Wicked - Going Home Review

Trippy Wicked: Going Home

Heavy/Stoner/Psychedelic Rock
3.5/5.0

Trippy Wicked (& the Cosmic Children of Knight) bring another platter of fuzz-busting psychedelic stoner rock with Going Home. Not quite the straight heavier rock of their alter ego Stubb, Pete Holland (g,v) and Chris West (d) give Trippy Wicked a more prog, even experimental, flavor.

Trippy Wicked: those crazy Englishmen.

But largely it's big riffs, and even bigger riffs, pushed along by a hearty rhythm section, and infused with Holland's expansive guitar solos. Sometimes the former is greater part of the song as on the opening title track, with Holland only elaborating near the end. Sometimes the Trippy can get their groove on as on the brief Ain't Gonna End Well. This is picked up on the clever Hillbilly Moonshine, a fuzzy busting charmer of chunky riffs, and some near Southern stew.

Mostly, however, Trippy Wicked wiggles between groove, psychedelic, stoner, and heavy rock for nearly prog sound on Going Home. In other words, it's typical Trippy Wicked, and sometimes it can drag a bit as on Change Your Mind. Yet fans should dig it.






In Short

Trippy Wicked delivers the stoner rock goods, with helpings of groove and psychedelic rock thrown in for good measure.
