4.0 out of 5 stars
A Silver Mnt Zion-Vinyl, 8 Nov 2011
This is their debut album. The whole album is dominated by an experimental mood, no lyrics ,just instrumental parts. Great compositions in duration, intense melancholy, silver mount zion lament the loss. Two songs in each side, more than 20 minutes each one. First side "Lonely as the Sound of Lying on the Ground of an Airplane Going Down" is a slow song that starts with piano,in the main theme stars the violin with a melody that is repeated in the rest of the song.Stately melody... nice. Second side with the nice title "The World Is SickSICK; (So Kiss Me Quick)!" is a too experimental song...Listen to that several times, and later maybe it will be unterstood...Hopelessness... In that song we found a few lyrics...!!!!
Not their best album, but here you can find some melodys that they used in their next albums.In my opinion, better start with an "easier" album(Horses in the sky), but if you are a fun, you know what to expect, and don't think it twice.
