For Bride's clique of fans this offers completists the demo tracks from the 1997 'Jesus Experience' sessions. Only one track, an unplugged "Alive", has been released before, and then only on a compilation limited to 1000 copies. There's an organic feel to the tracks, almost as though they were recorded in one long session. They're tightly played but don't sound finished. "Break My Spine" shows some nice changes in feel as it progresses and "Cosmic Christ" has sparks that made me wonder what it might have become had they worked further on the song. The same might be said of other tracks - "Cover Dry Bones" just settles into a groove and sits there for ages before breaking out for a while and slipping back again. It's a good groove, but just needs that bit more, really. They're certainly doing grooves well here. If you're a fan of Bride, then this is the best of the three 'Lost Reels' CDs. If you're not, then it's probably better to check out one of their other albums.
