Terminals, The – “Little Things” – [Last Visible Dog Records]
This reissue of the third album (1995) from the New Zealand quintet is special because it represents the last true outing from the band. The vocals, guitar, and keys on 7 create a great mood and are highly reminiscent of The Doors. With some exceptions (such as 8, which is a fast-paced and quick song), these are dark, slow, weirdly melodic rock songs with great lyrics. Track 10 is a cover of a Roxy Music track, and 11 is a live recording. Brian Cook is on guitar, and he offers premonitions of how his current band (The Renderers) sounds.
