This review is from: Background Music (Audio CD)
Really. This is beautiful music. Not beautiful in the fragile, delicate and intricate sense. But beautiful as in intense, poetic and passionate. This is everything you ever want form a hardcore CD. The lyrics are at the forefront of AN's aka the ghost's music, as Wes' words are personal, articulate and amazingly poetic. He uses amazing imagery and word play to create strong pictures in your mind, that combined with his amazingly intense voice - you don't need any more convincing that AN are the real deal. Musically, the guitars buzz and rip without letting up, with the odd breakdown now and again, and the drumming pounds away, and is actually, upon closer listen, very good. If you want raw passion and emotion - look no further. On a trivial note, the artwork, directed by Jake of Converge is nothing short of stunning. Background Music is an all-time classic.
