Cynics- Twelve Flights Up LP. This is a reissue of the second album by seminal Pittsburgh Garage band the Cynics originally released in 1988. The Cynics second album shows the band in a slightly lighter mood, combining scorching guitar tracks with some of the Cynics more pop material. Great originals like “Yeah!” and “Took Her Hand” combined with awesome renditions of 60’s nuggets like the Paragons “Abba” and the Nighcrawlers “A Basket of Flowers” show that the Cynics aren’t just three-chord wonders by weaving some intricate guitar lines with excellent harmonies; reminiscent of some of the band’s earliest singles. This release also has its share of classic crushers from the Cynics. Cuts like “Creepin”, “Erica” and “Nothin'” features a great wall of fuzz guitars and swirling vocal harmonies. This release shows the Cynics maturing and expanding their musical horizons without abandoning their garage roots that helped garnered them a following in the first place. A true classic and finally being reissued here with slightly different artwork!
