it is brutal, it is sublime, it is the single most passionate hardcore cd i've ever heard. it will make your ears bleed - in the best possible way. there's awesome stuff here from the blistering speed of distance and meaning, to the fury of phoenix in flight and the almost soothing hell to pay.
but the epic title track is for me the stand out song and it contains elements that sum up this cd: complex guitar movements weaving together the raw and the smooth, scrunchy basslines and punctuation drumming ... stoked up by the alternately hard and soft searing screams of singer/genius jacob bannon; and one of the most haunting finales i've ever heard - its 11 and a half minutes of bruising beauty. be generous with the volume controls - your neighbours will hate you but hey that's ok ...
yes, it's hardcore and not for everyone. but even if you don't usually go for this type of music, don't please dismiss jane doe. there's something alot more here that goes very deep, and the more more you listen the more you get it.
by the way the lyrics are pure poetry - you won't be able to hear many of them and their reproduction in the cool cd booklet is fractured and artistic.
This is no doubt my favourite cd so far.
I recommend it to anyone who enjoys metal (especially hardcore, for this band is probably the best hardcore band around) and for those who recently suffured a bad relationship. This album is no doubt inspiring, and nothing short of absolutely brilliant.
Compared to their earlier albums, Jane Doe is a positively scar-inducing experience. The production here is at first deceptively messy and grating, but soon reveals itself as being a pinpoint balance between extreme cold mathcore and human warmth experimentation, and the individually recorded instruments are powerful beyond expectation. Kurt Ballou's guitarwork here is all over the place in it's ferocious energy, and the coils of Nate Newton's bass strings are time bombs of thumping power. Ben Koller's drums are so over-produced that they sound like The Velvet Goldmine destroying a drumkit with grenades, and Jake Bannon's vocals are matched only in their anger and confusion by that of a new born baby screaming life into their fluid-filled lungs.
The first two tracks are comapnions to each other, and lead into themselves with breathless fury.Read more ›
If you're new to Converge, you have been warned: buy this if you have an open mind, a love of technical, complex music, and a true punk spirit. This album is incredibly heavy !
Jane Doe is a tale of loss, of hate, of grief, of anger, of smiles forgotten, bonds broken and of pure undiluted regret.
