The Troll - Animated Music (us psych 1978)
The Troll - Animated Music
This Chicago-based group cut a handful of mid-'60's singles for ABC-Paramount as The Trolls before cutting this disc for Mercury's Smash subsidiary. The material ranges from the hard rock of "Satin City News", "Mourning of the Day", and "Werewolf and Witchbreath", to the more novelty styled "Have You Seen the Queen" and "Professor Pott's Pornographic Projector". This album owes more to Sgt. Pepperthan it does to Surrealistic Pillow, but it does contain one psychedelic masterwork, "I've Only Myself to Blame". The album was reissued a couple of years back on 180-gram vinyl by the Radioactive label in a 1000 copy pressing. That's still probably the easiest way to find it, if you're so inclined.

Raw crude Heavy psych with it's moments but the lack of any production hinders this from developing into the monster it could have been. Track" brave New World" is a monster that surpases the bad production or lack of it. I Love the crazed shouted vocals a lot! Wild!

Only for dedicated fans of this genre, rest of you will hate this.
