We gave it a B+

Brooding, guitar-imploding psychedelia from raw-throated androgyne Thalia Zedek and partner Chris Brokaw, who over four records has emerged as a compelling tag-team frontperson. More sprawling than 1996’s near-perfect Near Life Experience, Gently Down the Stream boasts plenty of prickly beauty and tortured grandeur, and when the guitars engage, it’s a thrilling thing. When they don’t, it’s not. But their average is pretty good. B+
