Album Balf Quarry is astonishing keen to follow the gauge set out by preceding album Boss. A jolting guitar riff begins this album, punks up a little, rushes in the piano middle-set. But please don't call Balf Quarry a repeat of BOSS, Magik Markers' excellent 2007 album. Balf Quarry has its own character. It leads this duo's loud leanings into simpler songs without offering the band's bright energy. Balf Quarry is lyrics sad vindictive with the rare spots of hippy-baiting melodies.
