Twenty-three minutes into the first track of Rock Dreams, the real sonic bludgeoning begins. The rising action of "Feedbacker" is meditative and enchanting -- an invocation, intoned at the pace of advancing glaciers, to the aural firebombing that ensued during this live performance captured at Tokyo's Earthdom festival in 2006. Merzbow adds tasteful, even understated (for him), electronic elements throughout the set, especially "Evil Stack," and becomes like a fourth member of the band. "Rainbow" is a nod to the narcotic psych rock of the 1960s.
