My knowledge of ambient rock is very limited. When I say very limited, I mean that I never listen to ambient rock. Maserati's "Pyramid Of the Sun" was a refreshing change of pace in the musical genres I listen to regularly.

The cd starts out with the song Who Can Find The Beast? which has a very spacy/trance feel to it. This song takes you on a peaceful, captivating journey through its two and a half minute playtime. The next track really starts off slow, but towards the end really starts to pick up. The guitar work demands your attention while the drumming of Jerry Fuchs seems to be driving the whole band.

The change in pace for each of the songs took me for surprise, sometimes going at a snails pace, then bursting into something intense, and full of emotion.
The highlight track has to be the last one, with the band demonstrating its full potential and holding no bounds. While the cd is definitely impressive in part, I couldn't help but notice a lot of it was incredibly repetitive, with some parts of songs sounding almost identical to its predecessor track.


Pyramid Of the Sun was the last studio album this band put out in a decade long run before the sudden passing of their drummer, Jerry Fuchs. This only leaves me questioning whether or not what the future of the band is going to be. Throughout the course of the album, Jerry almost seemed to be the backbone of the band, which, if the band decides to, make a new album interesting and definitely worth taking note of
