Dumb Angel - Glamour For Sale II (2005)

In 2005, Dumb Angel's Glamour For Sale II was recorded at The Psychedelic Daycare Studios in Fayetteville,AR and Tulsa,OK at Jeff Smothers compound. Sessions were notoriously marathon style sometimes writing and recording three songs in one evening. This album shows DA exploring through dark, heavy and ambient rock&roll except, unlike Glamour For Sale I, this album has a depth that truly captures an atmosphere. Vocals are huge and held up by a massive army of guitars and string arrangements. "Blackout" is an explosion of powerful vocals and Queen like guitar layers. "Like Medicine" is probably the darkest groove I've ever heard. "Personal Crime" is a perfect example of setting an atmosphere with beautiful string arrangements and haunting lyrics about witnessing a suicide in Central Park, Dumb Angel also cover Velvet Underground's "New Age" on this stellar album.
