Album Review - The Malibooz: Living Water (The Surfer's Mass)
by DJ Johnson
John Zambetti and his band have been around the surf scene forever and ever, but this release is nothing like what they'd done before, which was primarily vocal surf-pop in the Beach Boys tradition. Living Water is their own religious experience preserved on CD, a series of devotional hymns to God and Ocean, which they seem to feel are one and the same. If you feel a spiritual connection to the ocean, as many of us do, this music may just bring tears to your eyes. And if you don't give a rip about tides, it might just move you anyway because it's beautiful music, plain and simple. One thing's certain, if you have any spirituality at all, this album will reach you.
