Ramp buy CD music Customer Reviews
After falling for the twisted music of Howe Gelb with Giant Sand's recent studio album Chore Of Enchantment, "Ramp" has re-affirmed my views about the quality of Giant Sand's music. First track "Warm Storm" is astounding which is a shame because the rest of the album, although very good, can never quite live up to it. This is definitely the album to try if you want to dabble in their earlier as it is probably more accessible and melodious than the likes of "Swerve" and "Centre Of The Universe" Ramp - An unheralded classic.
