The final El Rayo-X
record, while lovely, does not exactly contain the power and fury of the first two. On Very Greasy
, David Lindley
and his cohorts explore a myriad of lighter, more Caribbean rhythms and textures, rendering a very pleasing album. Some great covers such as "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" and "Do You Wanna Dance" are pleasant enough, but the fact that hard rock Warrior drummer Ian Wallace
-- who was such a big part of the power of their second CD, Win This Record
-- is missing results in a weaker record. All in all, a very nice, eclectic slice, but not what this fine band was really about.
