5.0 out of 5 stars Ocean-like, 7 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Self-Preserved While The Bodies Float (Audio CD)
Only time I heard the band live was after the release of Frames and were they loud! Pity that keys and vocals completely drowned in waves of guitar and drum noise. Then came the disappointing Home & Minor and I thought I'd had it with the band. Till recently, just browsing on the net, reading reviews on Self Preserved. Oceansize were, of course, also the hard-working band that gave us Effloresce and Everyone Into Position, so should I not give it one more try? And, yes, Self Preserved is mind-blowing. Just in time, after I heard initial fears coming true (the opening songs are very good but also loud and heavy, quite prog-metal actually) there came some ballads. Well, Ocean-like ballads. Heady stuff. More varied than ever. In fact, their best effort since long. One every new or settled act would be proud of. But again not the breakthrough they had hoped for, because to everyone's surprise they called it a day recently. Hearing all these sub-standard acts around that do make it, one can't help thinking it is an unfair world. Anyway, they leave us with an incredible work. And no one can ever say they did not try.
