our score: 3.5 out of 5.0
from Scotland, this foursome's first album proper was a
critical and personal failure. However, this self-titled
album was quickly forgotten with the release of their second
full-length - Hot Shots II. Focusing on a combination
of musical styles from Hip-Hop to Reggae to jam-rock, The
Beta Band have quickly become a critics favorite.
band's most notable work, however, is their rerelease of
their first three EPs - entitled The Three EPs. Newcomers
to the band are best picking up this disc, featuring the
now-classic "Dry the Rain." This is a band still
working to find it's best work, which will be fabolous given
what they've done so far.
