High Rise - Dispersion (1992)

| Psychedelic Rock | Noise Rock | Garage Rock |

Dispersion is another live-studio recording from the 'psychedelic speed freaks' High Rise (other albums here). Though it doesn't sound as loud and as fast as their "Live" or "II" stuff, here we have great performances from their most psychedelic songs.

"Outside Gentiles" is my favorite track from all their discography. A stunning fast and loud song, though I like the "Live" version more. "Sanctuary" is a stand-out, a not-so-fast track, with a cool distorted guitar riff, and calm singing. It's a strange song, if you take the fact that we're listening to High Rise, but it's a great song in overall. "Mainliner" is explosive as hell here, with furious solos attacking everywhere. "Nuit" is a very dense, despite being short, song, with a awesome heavy bass line. "Deuteronomy" is another awesome track, starting with a sorrowful and lonely guitar line, followed then by a bass as heavy as fuck and a slow, strong and loud drumming attack. The song grows in a fucking awesome way, that always makes me shiver, into lots of noisy and sharp improvisation.
