“It is tempting to judge Gorilla as a performance disk; the nature of an audio/poetry meld has long been claimed, at least in popular fashion, by slam poets (RE: vocally dynamic performance poets). However, you aren’t getting performance here. You are getting poetry, only subtly enhanced by vocal acuity and background music. This distinction allows a welcomed confidence with the material. Not that performance necessarily masks sub par work when used in slam routines, but the potential is there, much more than with Gorilla’s comparatively straightforward delivery. John Dooley’s vocals lull at times, inspire at others, but satisfies always. The disk’s forte, if it has only one, lies with mashing Dooley’s confident, frank speech against lines like the following, from Circus Never Comes to Hell, creating a much appreciated dissonance: "There are days, as you may already know, that move slower than unpunished murder. There are arsonists who make more money than you."”
