My patience for listening to weird bands is up this morning. I don't know what the hell Ocean Mind are trying to do but it doesn't work. Maybe I need to wait five years like I did with Mohinder the first time I heard them. They start with an accordian which I'm all for if, if it wasn't then followed by poorly constructed experimental rock. They throw in a few tracks and then are not sure what to do so cover House of the Rising Sun. For fuck's sake. I've skipped through the rest and it doesn't get any better. Then I find out there's a second CD; this thing is two hours long in total... There's a 37 minute track on it which sounds like Odd Clouds or Raccoo-oo-oon at the start but then goes off into it's own little world. I'm going to go listen to The Mars Volta right now and pretend this never happened.
