A sequel that’s faster, flashier and more bombastic than the original
Nebula : Charged
Beyond stoner rock, Californian group push riff envelope
So, it's a guitar trip: to the desert, into a lava wheel, to Detroit, often in the space of one song. 'Do It Now' sets the co-ordinates, freewheeling through the proto-punk era with the help of lysergic solos and a chorus so brilliant, it's virtually autistic: "Let's do it/Do it now". For all their shared stoner pedigree, Queens Of The Stone Age aren't really Nebula's most obvious reference points. 'Travelin' Man' suggests a bong and a boogie 'round the campfire with The Black Crowes, while 'Ignition' finds Nebula in a grunge moshpit, slick with that conviction that huge fuzzy guitars are all you ever need to hear - past, present and future.
And, you know, they could well be right.
