Ozone Mama – Cosmos Calling – Album Review

Oh mama! This shit is gooood!

Hungary’s favourite sons Ozone Mama have returned with Cosmos Calling, a beautifully rendered paean to late 60’s and early 70’s hard rock and an album of such class, you’ll be kicking yourselves for not having heard of them sooner!

Recalling the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band and all manner of psych-rock meets prog rock inspirations, these freakishly talented lads seem to find themselves lumped in with the stoner crowd when they’re simply re-working the pioneering sounds of the legends of the scene.

Soulful and bluesy, intrepid and organic, Cosmos Calling is the sound of rock at its purest, unencumbered by inhibitions and revelling in the sheer joy of making a beautiful, beautiful noise. Each track has a lick, a vocal hook, a juicy riff that’ll capture your heart and soul and there’s not a second wasted and while it sounds like we’re gushing, Cosmos Calling warrants it.

From the Eastern-tinged, Zeppelin-esque “Evil Ways” through to the spacey Pink Floyd meets Soundgarden-isms of closer “Moon Pilot”, you’ll be hooked by this outstanding album, enthralled by the honesty of Ozone Mama’s sound and ready to listen to the whole damn thing again.

Beyond impressive, Ozone Mama have set their sights on the big time and with Cosmos Calling as their calling card, they deserve to make it. Frankly, hard rock in 2018 has no right sounding this fresh! 9/10

Cosmos Calling is out now via Ripple Music.
