Caked in layers of 2012 grime, Lantern prevails yet again, only this time encapsulating the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll. Dream Mine is the soundtrack to replacing your parents’ family wall photos with staples and their severed ears. And “Out Of Our Heads” is just the perfect example of how Lantern kicks off their embodiment of rock ‘n’ roll via Dream Mine. Actually, it’s the second track, but the first “song.” The album’s first track is a fellah stating “Don’t say much,” and then it’s eardrum-rupturing motorcycle-revving for around a minute.
Just, if you’re into rock ‘n’ roll or are looking to make the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll album, take notes from Dream Mine. Shoot, take notes from “Out Of Our Heads.” It’s like, get your nobs at the level of almost blown out and then crush. The ambiance and world built in this album is inescapably face-tearing, and your forced fist-pumping will end up causing some type of damage, somewhere. Thank you, Bathetic!
