5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra impressive sophomore album 20 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm a recent convert to this 'post-rock' movement. In the past, pummeling riffs, passionate vox and driving rhythms were my forte. Recently I started listening to the likes of Mogwai, Grails and such, and have latched onto this 'post-rock' thing with both hands.

And so we come to this. I have purchased a lot of albums this year (the aformentioned Mogwai album 'Mr Beast' being just one) and I rate 'Every Red Heart...' as being one of the best, if not the best, album released this year. I am of the opinion that this beats the new Isis album 'Absence of Truth' hands down.

As each listen passes, the depth of this album increases, the emotions conjured listening to these vocal-less, epic tracks become more passionate to the extent now where, one day last week, on my way to work, on public transport, I almost wept. It is a dark, brooding affair that will leave you exhilarated and exhausted at the same time.

This is an extraordinary creation, the whole being so much greater than the sum of its parts. It is infinitely better than the debut, which I found a bit too light and airy. The claustrophobia this album develops is enveloping and intense - as it should be for an 'epic' release.

Try to listen to the LP version. The greater fidelity offered by the vinyl format does wonders for the sound.

As a rawk n roll convert, this album is essential. For those of you not yet moving through post rock, doom and the like, this is a perfect introduction.

Incredible.

As a big fan of heavy music, and also a big fan of post-rock, the new red sparowes release should be a big deal for me. Ostensibly a heavy music super-group (featuring members of Isis, Neurosis, Angel Hair and occasionally Pelican), Red Sparowes should have the recipe for success. Unfortunately they also seem to have the power to disappoint too; at the soundless dawn had elements of excellence, but also had a distinct air of being a band who hadn't met their potential yet.

When I first got this album, I automatically felt enthusiastic- the long song titles, bizarre subject matter and narrative structure were still there. However, on first listening I was slightly perturbed- the band seem to regularly go down routes, spiralling, but then not quite committing to any sort of real crescendo. Unlike their genre predecessors God Speed! they never go all out. This perturbed me, and on first listening i was unimpressed; so, I did a bit of research...

If you start to explore what they are trying to do, if you look up the story of the eponymous: 'Red Sparowes' (the tale of Chinese cull of Red Sparrows and eventual mass starvation because of a plague of locusts), then you can actually learn that they aren't trying to do that. The story doesn't grow to the biggest crescendos, as the story doesn't allow for that. The more downbeat songs are only natural, as they're trying to track a tale with natural ebbs and flows.

It's only with this effort that I truly engaged with the album; one needs to search for artistic intention here, as it's not obvious. They aren't handing it to you on a plate, you need to fully attune yourself to the mood to actually work it out.

I saw the band live recently, and they used visuals to actually get across the structure. To some extent those visuals should be included (they aren't) to get the message across.

If you're a fan of pretension, then this is one of the albums that you should buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every red heart shines 12 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the second album my post rock band red sparrows. This is a long album reaching 1 hour in length and it is an instrumental album. The tack names are stupidly long and on the back is lumped into a paragraph so if you don't know what the songs start with you may not know what you are listening to but I can see why they did it as they wanted to do a concept album about the great leap in china where the people were told to scare the sparrows away from their harvests but this let insects that the sparrows scared away eat the harvest and that meant many lost lot of their stock and many million died because this.
The album art is amazing with the swarm of sparrows over the cityscape and the cool gold and red sky. The music on this album is a little diffident to some post rock bands and allot of the songs use the same instruments. The music isn't exactly slow like some bands but each song does build up momentum as the song progresses slowly getting heavier and more sounds thrown in the mix to give more of a wall of sound. Allot of the songs are very relaxing to listen to and there are not real instruments they use that make your ears ach as I have found with odd songs in my post rock collection. The album is well made and has had allot of detail to the music. All but 1 song on this album is over or on the 7 min marker so is a set of lengthy songs but if you have the patients you can easily do this album in one sitting. There are some more outstanding songs on the album like ""Annihilate the Sparrow, That Stealer of Seed, and Our Harvests Will Abound; We Will Watch Our Wealth Flood In."" Which is a low build up to the wall of sound then is Broken down to a slow until the drums kick in again rather suddenly.
