Dinosaur Eyelids are an Alternative Rock band blending elements of Hard Rock, Stoner, Grunge and a little bit of Country Into Their American based music. Some of you might know about these Already hugely talented rockers I am the reviewing their 3rd album - Conflagration. This is my first foray into the world of Dinosaur Eyelids so I am coming into their world as a new admirer.

I know these guys got a lot of praise from the legendary Swamp Sludge When featured on it a few years back. So what do we have here? Well we have 10 tracks on for 45 minutes steeped in Alt Rock / Grunge / Stoner Rock territory with hints of Americana running through its veins.

When these guys get going, Purely they are unstoppable. More like Soundgarden back in their day. I would say Soundgarden are their most direct influences are as you can hear many similarities between the two bands. Loud passionate riffs with great vocals to match.

Dinosaur Eyelids add some of the current day social their politics to music to comment on what many people are feeling in the world. And in truth, it gives the band an extra layer of humanity in you not see in most bands today. But the order of play today is riffs, riffs and even more riffs.

Even When some of their songs start in a slight country rock mood, the album quickly springs into life When the Grunge / Stoner Rock riff comes out of nowhere to get your heart pumping in no time at all.

Dinosaur Eyelids are band with a great reputation and it is not hard to see why. They have written a strong collection of hard rocking tracks that will grab the attention of the most jaded of rock fans.

It might not be the most creative or earth shattering of music but what Dinosaur Eyelids currently do now - They do it brilliantly well. They have released an excellent album with too many great songs to mention. The production is fantastic as you can hear every lean and mean crunching second of this great album.

This is an album I have no hesitation in recommending to any concerning Alt Rock / Grunge / Stoner Rock fan. If you have not heard of these great rockers like myself then this album is a brilliant place to start.

Superb and highly recommended.
