And the subtitle- Heavy Psychedelic Ballads and Dirges- points to an intriguing vein of music; more intriguing yet is the aim of collecting variations of it from five different continents. But when you're working with psychedelic rock, one of the most uneven genres when it comes to old, small-press, and private-press releases, even the best intentions can result in a bit of a mess. The good news with Forge Your Own Chains is that listening to it all the way through will leave you with both positive first and last impressions

Forge Your Own Chains, a compilation released by Stones Throw offshoot Now-Again Records, is a treasure trove of such lost songs, lining up 14 diverse and heady tracks of psychedelic rock. Some are more obscure than others, though according to the liner notes, no track was chosen specifically because of its rarity. The music on display here comes from all corners of the world, from the United States, to Columbia, Sweden, Thailand and Iran. The first track, Song of a Sinner, comes from Middle American rockers Top Drawer, a sprawling, organ-heavy ballad that stands among the most gorgeous and mesmerizing tracks here. The good news with Forge Your Own Chains is that listening to it all the way through will leave you with both positive first and last impressions
