Review: Spacehog – In the Meantime (Rock)

This review covers the alternative rock track Spacehog – In the Meantime.

This track was released in 1995 on the album Resident Alien.

The track starts off with some guitars and an additional synth. A drum kit and bass guitar then comes in. Another synth then comes in. After that, the lead guitars come in as the vocals come in in a non-lyrical manner.

From there, the track then drops back as the vocals take the track into the first verse. The lead guitars then come back as the vocals take the track into the first round of the main chorus.

After that, the vocals then take the track into the next verse with the lead guitars dropping back again. The lead guitars and the vocals then take the track into the next round of the main chorus. The vocals also extend the main chorus.

From there, the main chorus is then repeated. The vocals extend the main chorus a bit off beat from the drums. An additional guitar comes in as well in this section. The additional guitar then drops out. The The remaining lead guitars then lead the track out for the most part. A piano element is left behind and this element just fades out after a bit.

For me, the lead guitars are decent enough. They aren’t amazing, but they are decent enough.

Meanwhile, the vocals do sound decent enough on the surface, but once you get into the technicalities, it’s where things unwind for this track. Towards the end, the vocals seem to drift out of sync with the drum kit. This makes the track sound a bit amateurish. Additionally, the mastering of the track means that some of the lyrics wind up getting drowned out from the other elements in the track. As such, the meaning gets a bit lost in the track.

Overall, this track is OK, but suffers from a number of problems. The guitars sound decent enough and the actual sound of the vocals are decent enough. Unfortunately, they drift out of sync from the drum kit towards the end and the mastering done on this track means that some of the lyrics get drowned out from other elements. So, it ends up being OK, but nothing huge.
