It's not every day that the best psychedelic band around right now makes an entire album for people who think that "Rain" was the best Beatles B-side. As opposed to the power-trio creaming of Innerspeaker, Lonerism doesn't spend all its time trying to convince you you're listening to three amazing musicians jamming their nuts off. Rather, it attempts to convince you you're listening to Rubber Soul being played inside Syd Barrett's medicine cabinet on a radio made of amethyst. A wobbly, avowedly-Anglo jelly of psych and drone.
