5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Coma - Into a Second Lifetime... 11 May 2012
By Bill B
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Beast returns in triumph... A timeless classic. Everyone who appreciates First Utterance will wet their pants over this masterpiece. It has three new songs (all of a most edifying length), beautifully recorded, including the title track plus The Malgaard Suite. This last is from a 1972 live concert, recorded with just a hand-held cassette recorder, the tape having languished in the outer darkness for forty years but despite the apologies in the booklet and Roger Wootton's explanation, it sounds better than many bootleg recordings of other bands and is a stunning piece... As it says in the booklet, 'soaring', 'majestic', 'a lyrical sonic fever dream'. Yes, and the rest.

The new songs show Comus have taken up where they left off First Utterance (and The Malgaard Suite) and produced this strangely beautiful and powerful work as if those forty years didn't count, and why should they? What is time anyway? Experience? Gestation of genius? This music, with its rare and darkly thrilling quality, is to die for, or even to die to.

And guess what? I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album 14 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
I approached this album with caution, but I can honestly say that it is a triumph from start to finish, all the new songs are very much in the style of the bands first album and not their poor second album, Comus had an edge and originality that set them apart, this album confirms it. The live track from 1971 The Malgaard Suite is epic and contains all of the odd and other worldly elements that Comus excel at, I love this album and I rate it as highly as their first, if you are a fan of First Utterance this is for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Entity or band? 6 May 2014
By feral
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Comus have always seemed more like an entity than a band, something imagined by Algernon Blackwood on an especially dark day. Anyone who has seen the band live in recent years will know how seamlessly the old and the new mix; with The Return, perhaps, the equal to anything on First Utterance. I've always thought that your taste in art defines you as a person, not sure what that says about me and you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Listen to their other album instead! 3 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Their 'other' album (TO KEEP FROM CRYING) has some quirky and poppy tracks you MIGHT like but this is poorly conceived and the recording is lacking in finesse. They clearly didn't adapt to working in the studio very well.

Their 'other' album has some great guests but these guests DO NOT shine through and don't buy it on the basis that these guests might be worth a listen... It is well recorded and mixed though, something that "Out of the Coma" is definitely NOT.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Night Was Sultry 7 Feb 2014
By Lazlo - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Thanks to James Morgenstern for recommending this. It's like the original 1970s "Wicker Man" house band Magnet only slightly more gypsy jazz influenced. Maybe I could also compare them to that first Process church house band Changes. But a lot of obscure comparisons aren't going to describe Comus's sound that well.

The really nuts thing about this band is the philosophical, I'd conjecture, heathen lyricism they managed to evoke in the early to mid 1970s. I'm not much of a lyric reader but it's sinking in and I'm finding it pretty in a slightly ghostly way and so is a perfect wrap-up to a youth spent drinking nougat nectar.
4.0 out of 5 stars Yay! More Comus! 4 July 2013
By Caelligh - Published on Amazon.com
Discovering this album was a wonderful surprise! I really like "First Utterance" but listening to it is always a little bittersweet because it's a unique album and I want more of it. Now I have more! But I would like more still because I am shamelessly greedy when it comes to good, creative music, so, please, Comus, keep recording! (Maybe attempt The Malgaard Suite again?)

About the album: "Out of the Coma" contains many moments in the instrumentation and vocals that link it directly to "First Utterance." There are particular phrases from, say, the violin and particular harmonies that create this link. The saxophone (a soprano sax?) is a new voice, and it lives up to the high standard for musicianship set in "First Utterance" and continued in "Out of the Coma." The band overall is as sincere and brave as ever. Yay!
