Jack Rabid over at The Big Takeover
has some nice words about Error:
Nowadays, instrumental bands have a tough road to find attention. But this Dallas outfit is smart enough to bring back the time, as late as the ‘60’s when vocal-less incursions in the charts were amusingly common, and the jaunty practitioners like Herb Albert and his Tijuana Brass could cross over hits like “Spanish Flea” into the Dating Game Theme. I.e., Experiment is modernly-produced, vintage fun from all over the spectrum, with happy organs you used to hear at sports arenas, the western-guitar rock of the Duane Eddy and the Shadows, bits and pieces of spaghetti Western films, lot of Henry Mancini (the Walkin’ Baby Elephant” kind) “Music To Watch Girls By,” Tex-Mex, and shades of Alpert, The Cars/Devo, and a primary ‘80’s precursor, Wall of Voodoo. With this kind of upbeat joy, you don’t need singing.
