The time has arrived in the career of Satanís Pilgrims to put out best of set, and it is about time. Plymouth Rock- The Best of Satanís Pilgrims celebrates 10 years of successful recordings in the popular yet underrated genre of instrumental surf music. I am getting further and further away from referencing the surf influences, but it is a necessity because that is where it all started and why bands like this carry on and continue to make such great basic rock Ďní roll today.
CD 1 offers 20 tracks of the very best from the boys and CD2 is nothing but new, rare, and unreleased music with a bonus video section. They should have left out the videos; they are of very poor quality both visually and in sound. The music is the most important thing so, other than the video extras, this is fine two-disc set.
There are not a lot of new things to say about this kind of music unless there is some experimental mixing of different styles going on. It is pretty much the same every time out. However, only the great bands cover all the styles within the genre, and this band offers up that smorgasbord of sound. I happen to enjoy this music very much. Itís a necessary, well, evil - I guess I should say that considering their name, but seriously, I always considered these guys as one of the best, right up their with their peers. This is pure unadulterated fun, and that has always been the attraction for me with this kind of music. And the added benefit of nostalgia and the culture that goes with it makes it more colorful, as well. This is well worth picking up if you love surf-instro music.
