The Coyote Who Spoke in Tongues by John Garcia
Guerino’s rating: 9/10. I’m a long term fan and lover of JG and I appreciated almost every single album he published or where he simply contributed with his wonderful voice. In this disc, however, he really managed to convey a tsunami of emotions and the balance between new and old tracks is definitely satisfying.
The Coyote Who Spoke in Tongues is an acoustic album which contains new songs and some wonderfully rearranged tunes from the Kyuss era.
From Blabbermouth: normally you would expect some heavy guitars, pounding drums and fuzzy tunes from Mr. Garcia. But not this time, as his new effort is something extremely special and presents him stronger and more emotional then he has ever been. Recorded and mixed by Steve Feldman and Robbie Waldman, mastered by Gene “The Machine” Grimaldi at Oasis Mastering in California, “The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues” offers an emotional acoustic ride through Garcia’s solo work as well as songs by Kyuss in new arrangements like you have never heard before!
From Metal Injection: while I have doubts that there was any intention in creating something that would top his past main project, Kyuss, the way that Garcia approached these re-recordings was tasteful and creative.
