Kashmir -- No Balance Palace

Now here is a tough, wicked little masterpiece. On No Balance Palace, Danish rockers, Kashmir, bring some darker-toned electric-guitar picking to the forefront of their once sunnier sound, and tell a subtle tale of light vs darkness in everyday city life. The devil lives in an apartment at the top of a black, abandoned building on the corner, throwing trash from the window onto the street below. Almost everyone parties the days away under a disco ball, oblivious, never noticing that sometimes Lucifer has come down to stand in the corner and watch. Best to drive on. Just don't pass up this album.
