Album Notes
Originally released in 2007 as a limited vinyl run of only 500 copies, the Linus Pauling Quartet's "All Things Are Light" is now available via digital download.

Ned Raggett sums up the album nicely in his AllMusic review:

"The Linus Pauling Quartet continue to follow their wry and righteous muse on All Things Are Light, a short, powerful album dedicated to the principle that lysergic insanity is not merely a sonic means to an end but a fine end in and of itself. In this context, starting off with a song called "Alien Abduction" makes perfect sense, as does making sure it has a series of core monster riffs, perfectly paced getting-ripped-while-driving-down-the-highway rhythms, and echoing vocals about the titular event. About all a listener needs is the mescaline. From there the Texas group explores a variety of psychedelic diversions, ranging from "Southern Pine," initially gentle enough to appear on a random shoegaze mix CD-R then increasingly more fraught and sprawling, to the horn-driven "Enchirito," almost a tribute to Psychic...Powerless-era Butthole Surfers (but the back and forth between a drive-up fast-food patron and the working stiff on duty is all their own). However, a core point about the Linus Pauling Quartet isn't merely that they're a great psych band, but a great band period, able to embrace a lot of styles and moods and work them well. There's plenty of heavily energetic muscle on display throughout the album -- "She Bad, She Thowed" is the kind of country-blues-funk that one could almost expect from the Lone Star State, tight and snarling from the word go. In contrast, "40 Oz.," a backhanded celebration of being wasted and stretched out on the ground with said bottle of cheap beer, makes for a great lost slacker anthem delivered with understated ease.
