Without doubt the best album i have bought in some time. Before I go any further, I will outline that I have listened to this album about 30 times in the last week. Thats probably comparable with the life time of listenings to many of other cds I have bought in a while.
This is the sort of album whereby you listen to it, and one song pops out (Rapt. Dept), then you listen again and another one pops out (Schteeeve) and some more listens down the line a few more seem to have some great hooks and your not sure which one you cant get out of your head at any one time(Team Radar, Fivefour and Yesterday Head). And then, a week later, someone tells you that one of the other songs is the best song. And guess what (17) it probably is!
Maybe its this feeling of discovery that makes me buy albums...
Ignoto is a complex collusion of some seriously inventive musician ship. Think down the same lines as Oceansize and Vex Red for the sound, but perhaps Biffy Clyro for creativity. Only its different. There are so many hooks and catchy bits that you wont be able to resist fondling the rewind button just to experience it over again.
If you have bought any of the albums from the bands I list, or that Amazon recommends on this page, then you WILL love this album. If you like creative albums or 'growers' or just fancy something a bit dark and rocky without going to far in any direction, you will enjoy this. For some reason I find it emotional in parts, in the same way listening to Deftones or watching The Crow has done in the past, but then that might just be me.
Will this album go down in history? Maybe. Will this be a long-term favourite of mine, definately!
