4.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful album, 6 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asleep On The Floodplain (Audio CD)
Longtime fans of Ben Chasny's work won't be disappointed with this one. After a couple of albums recorded together with extra musicians, Asleep on the floodplain is a new home-recorded solo outing on which the acoustic guitar and occasional soothing voice takes the central role again - at times supported by sparse additional instruments and layered drones. At first & second hearing, these new songs may sound a little underwhelming after the more 'dramatic' approach on Luminous Night, The Sun Awakens and particularly Shelter from the Ash, but nevertheless this is a rewarding album indeed. The atmosphere of these recordings is warm, poetic and melancholic as always, the quality of his guitar playing exquisite. In a way Chasny picks up where he ended on For Octavio Paz & Dark Noontide, though it's undeniable he has grown as a songwriter & instrumentalist. An evolutionary and maybe unsurprising album, but a delightful one. Not to mention a great starting point for those new to Six Organs of Admittance.
