CD Review – The Tunnel (Soundtrack to a bunch of dark movies)
The Tunnel’s second album reminds me of a lot of different movies. “Fathomless Deep” could be the backdrop of a scene set in a seedy, foggy back alley in London. “Strange Haven” would be right at home on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack.
“The Beast-Catcher” sounds a lot like the anti-folk of The Butchers and The Builders with the half-sung vocals of Jeff Wagner and the cryptic and semi-tragic plot: Trying to catch a “beast” (my guess is the Chupa Cabra) in an old Mexican city. “King of the Impossible” has a distinct Queens of the Stone Age feel.
After listening to this album, you’ll come away from this feeling a little dirty and probably a lot drunk.
