SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO ‘Demo II’(Demo 2004) Signal To Noise Ratio

Are you single, male, the wrong side of 45, with a penchant for orange underpants? Does your pockmarked (vinyl) collection start at A for Amon Duul II and finish at T for Tangerine Dream. Do you consider that the zenith of rock history is circa 1972-3 and the plethora of Germanic bands with names unpronounceable and music just as obscure?

You sad f---. But you will like Signal To Noise Ratio. In short they will allow you to broaden your geographical, if not musical, horizons and head east, this time for Poland. This band have obviously not caught up with the 21st century, but the album starts almost promisingly. I mean, if you are going to add flute to progressive jazz rock it will invariably end up sounding like Jethro Tull. And 'Eden' does indeed, but in a new twist it could almost be a (bad) sixties secret agent theme.

Things go progressively down-stream from here, with the following tracks being nothing but spaced out navel-gazing of the sort that got a very bad name in the seventies.

If you think it's worth disinfecting the orange underpants, whilst under the influence of smoked banana skins, check this out. Otherwise, avoid.
