Well, I wouldn't mind the lyrical-musical vibe of _ST_ but maybe with
rather better production?  I just can't get into the _thin_ sound of the
early albums (and its a testament to the actual material on them that I
still like them a lot :)

Which isn't to say that I think BOC should sound like Kyuss :)  That
would be silly.  BOC should sound solid and powerful; not too fuzzy and
_definitely_ not to _thin_! :)

Damn, they should get that guy who produced that Bruce Dickenson album,
Chemical Wedding, to produce!  What was his name?  Roy Z, I think ....
Great sound on that album.

Thinking of Bruce D. plundering Blake, BOC could do worse than point
themselves back towards the likes of HP Lovecraft ....
