Looking for Today is the debut full-length by Los Angeles trio THE RARE BREED, and as thick as the band lays it on in touting their love of Sabbathian ways - and why not; Mountain of Dreams takes them to near-Sheavy levels of Sab worship and they named their album after a BLACK SABBATH song - it's hard to listen to songs like "The Stranger" and "Rusted Diamond" and not think of more modern, UNCLE ACID-style garage doom swing. "Visions" has more of a later-Ozzy-era vibe, and "Echoes" positively gallops in the drums, but in its shuffle, closer "Witches Lore" has some of that now-tinged rhythm as well (and some gallop of its own to boot), so there's more going on than just "we heard 'Sweet Leaf' and decided to start a band," however much guitarist Oscar de la Torre's vocals might be derived from the work of a certain Mr. Osbourne.
