Equal parts psychedelic and psychotic, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats take listeners on another mind-melting, proto-metal journey on their trippy third outing, Mind Control. Every detail -- from the sound that feels as influenced by the harmonies of the British Invasion as it is by the ominous blues of Black Sabbath, to the archival-looking album covers -- helps to give the album the feel of some sort of forgotten gem rather than a modern invention. And while listeners might not find much in the way of innovation on a record like Mind Control, there's plenty of trance-inducing fun to be had, making it a must-listen for those who like to spend their days in the psychedelic end of the pool.
