Staring Back at You cover art

Artist: Transmontane
Title: Staring Back at You
Catalogue Number: Sick Room Records
Review Format: CD
Release Year: 2012

The press release starts with “Transmontane is a mystery” an ends with a comparison with Neil Young. Could this mystery actually be the second coming of the singer songwriter?

Actually, no. “Staring Back At You” is just another collection of badly recorded dull songs played with such lack of imagination and skill that you have to wonder just why Transmontane – whoever he may be – even bothered (but I suppose self-indulgence is its own reward?)

Painfully dull, this album is more sonic masturbation than music.
