Splendid record!...though not as good as 'Kollapse'...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything (Audio CD)
On this album the band have created a heavier sound for the first half, followed by a softer more melancholic sound for the second. The title of the album leaves a lot to be desired...surely one of the worst the group have ever come up with. The first track (also the title track) starts promisingly, but then has a pretty awful middle section whilst the hideous FOGFWPLOE is chanted over the top, however, the song then breaks into a sublime, powerful coda which is every bit as good as the groups highpoints in the past. The second tune continues in a similar manner, as does the third. It is not until the fourth track that there is a break from the heavy sound, as beautiful minimal piano creates a new atmosphere, which is then followed by the best track 'What We Loved...' which is the emotional highpoint of the record, even if it doesn't build to the great heights of past tunes such as 'So Some Lonesome..', 'Ring Them Bells...' and 'Could've Moved Mountains' etc. The last track is a great experimental sounding closer to an overall pretty good record.
As much as I love this band it is a shame they have lost the instrumental chamber sound of their first 2 albums and have gone more rock orientated. '13 Angels...' from the first album remains my own favourite piece the band have recorded.
If new to the band I advise getting the albums in this order;
1) He Has Left Us Alone...
2) Born Into Trouble...
3) Horses In The Sky
5) This Is Our Punk Rock...
6) Pretty Little Lightning Paw EP
7) F' Off Get Free...
8) 13 Blues...
