"Based on simple riffs and often tropical and latin imagery, "Jalamanta" slowly unwinds its grooves and trips without ever raising its voice to a shout. With Brant responsible for all the instruments and songrwriting (except for one song), you could say that this is the yin to Kyuss and Fu Manchu's yang."
"JALAMANTA is easily in my top ten albums of all time. The only thing I dislike about listening to it is that it ends. Its just smooth groove after smooth groove. It almost reaches a euphoric level. I have had Jalamanta since its release and a week rarely goes by without several listens. It will be the soundtrack to my summer night smoke sessions, I can tell you that much. There is no one label that can be placed on this album. All I can say it that if you are a fan of rock music on any level, you should own this masterpiece. Brant is the man!"
"This thing actually belongs in the motherfucking CLASSIC album review forum. Holy sweet fucking fuckity fuck does this slab of vineeeeel sound soooo damned good or what? Pick up this double 12" immediately or regret it later. Jalamanta has been my favorite thing Brant has ever done and my CD copy has had its case melted in the dessert sun, been dragged accross hundreds of miles of road trips, and been left on repeat for hours upon hours of love makin nights, drinkin nights, smokin nights, or just plain "fuck I'm tired and beat down play me something to soothe my soul" nights.
