The time has finally come. After eleven years of waiting, a new Doctor Explosion album! They keep their punk and garage attitude but unfold a thousand more nuances in this album - solid riffs, psychedelic atmospheres, anthological lyrics, and superb arrangements.
Would one call Superioridad Moral a mature record? That's a complicated term to associate with Doctor Explosion. Still, this album shows Jorge and his band playing at a high caliber level.
You can't just label Superioridad Moral as simply “a garage album,” it was written and arranged without that intent and is more than that. It’s an encyclopedia of the best rock music in which huge songs follow one another. But could it also be a record about maturity written by pathologically immature folks? Yeah, that sounds about right.
Superioridad Moral was recorded and mixed in the legendary Circo Perrotti studios of Gijon and by the usual procedure: analogically, on tape, using all kinds of old-fashioned machines, but sounding real, direct, and, therefore, in your face. The record was mastered by Frank Arkwright (New Order, The Smiths, Joy Division, Oasis, Arcade Fire) at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
