Odor of Pears - _Crown of Thorns_
(Independent, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
I don't know how we snagged a copy of this to review, but this is one of those borderline records to review in CoC. Does it fit the mold? Is it metal? Is it extreme? Where does it go? While I am at a loss on why the band would choose such a bizarre name as Odor of Pears, their music is a haunting trip through emotions, darkness and electronic/industrial-tinged offerings. The music is coated with a surreal state of sound, a sound emanating rhythms that'll sink deep into your psyche and cause you to feel bizarre and tingly all over. Odor of Pears is a cool band to take in stages, as their hypnotic guitar playing and '80s gothic inspired song patterns require a lot of concentration to get the full effect, something no doubt lost if there were to be repeated listens. Not for everyone, but definitely unique and no doubt a sonic stew of ideas for those who find comfort in bizarre music to relax and unwind to.
