It’s a long way down
Released only one year after their psychedelic debut, The Fallen Angels’ sophomore album, ‘It’s A Long Way Down,’ lays it all out on the line. Unfettered by label interference, The Fallen Angels’ second and final record highlights all the band has to offer. Off-kilter time signatures, experimental soundscapes, and white-hot guitar licks abound across ‘It’s A Long Way Down’s dozen tracks, with lead singer Jack Bryant’s vocals serving as a guiding light through the paisley-patterned tunnel. Album high points like ‘Poor Old Man’ and ‘Something New You Can Hide In’ tease early signs of progressive rock with their weird and winding melodies, and impress with rock-solid instrumentation. An early marvel of psych rock that holds up to this day. Mastered from its original tapes and pressed at RTI on red vinyl, in its original gatefold design.
