      Bongzilla's fourth album (2005).

      'Amerijuanican' once again tackles the issue of marijuana culture with the usual subtlety that can be expected from a band called "Bongzilla," and it continues in the same impressive style as the previous 'Gateway,' only slightly less enthralling overall. The sound is still incredibly heavy and slow, and even if you avoid the seemingly prerequisite drug intake yourself, it's at least essential to play this incredibly loud, otherwise there's little point.

      One major change here is the move away from gimmicky voice samples, which I never enjoy no matter what the genre, but became particularly irritating within the Bongzilla discography considering they were all on about exactly the same thing all the time. This encourages Muleboy to squawk his lyrics more consistently throughout, while he and Spanky turn increasingly towards stoner rock in their enjoyable and simplistic guitar riffs, the rest of the band easily keeping up to speed - considering the speed is glacially slow on occasion.

      There's less variation here than on the previous album, but variety isn't the most important requirement of an album designed primarily for people to get stoned to. 'Cutdown' is a fairly long and impressive instrumental while 'Stonesphere' is far too long and uneven, but still enjoyable in a daft sort of way. Bongzilla never set out to change the face of stoner rock, but have at least provided a few decent offerings for similarly loyal pot fans and anyone else who fancies a listen. The music's a lot less silly than you might expect.
