This review is from: Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue (Audio CD)
Kayo Dot are not your average run-of-the-mill rock band. No, they venture into the avant-garde and come up with things that can change people's whole perspective of music. I first got into Kayo Dot through leader Toby Driver's old band maudlin Of The Well. Their album Bath was one of the most breathtaking albums I've heard and Kayo Dot continued this opinion. Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue is their second album, after 2004's Choirs of the Eye. Dowsing Anemone With Copper tongue has a higher emotional peak than anything on it's predecessor and raises the bar on progressive music.

Kayo Dot use an array of instruments, not only do they use normal rock band instruments but also use clarinet, alto sax and many more classical instruments into it's sound. The songs are long, with the shortest being 8 minutes and the longest being 18 minutes (!). This isn't a listen for the casual listener, instead people who love large sound landscapes and intense climaxes will jump right into this and love every moment.

Every track here has something new and it would be hard to pick out just one amazing moment. Anyone who is looking for something new, original and something that is completely devoid of any proper classification should look into this worthy buy.
