It’s remarkable that a band can be this good while still getting better on their ninth studio album.
Strange Cousins from the West continues on the organic progression Clutch has been making on each album since their inception. It takes what was good about From Beale Street to Oblivion and makes it better, which Beale Street did with Robot Hive/Exodus, and so on.
Awesome album and congratulations to the band on self-releasing it. I’m glad to know my money’s going straight to the people who deserve it for once.
