Trumping up with their third release, Milans King Bong are no novices on the field of instrumental Stoner Rock, a stylistic drawer you will open intuitively when hearing the band's name. Despite its humorous approach though, the trio sounds refresheningly serious, even eclectic with its refusal to cater to expectations.
On the other hand, they are no virtuosity-driven friends of Progressive Rock either, as you may come to think due to the album title which brings Khan's cult classic „Space Shanty“ to mind. Lasting (in the truest sense of the word; you have to endure this one) 15 minutes, the opening „Even 50 Feet Hamsters Have Feelings“ is a very slow display of mostly soft, but at times more forceful guitar playing. Andrea, the man responsible for this, repeatedly feints having found the one and only motif for his tune, but then thinks again and tries something else. Thus the rhythmic backbone is the only thing which keeps the track together up until its noisy ending.
