Do not buy this expecting 'real music' with vocals and song structure ect. ect.. This is just one long track, but it is way more than a 'bunch of noises' and yes, more than just 'ambience'. This is a beautifully haunting soundscape and work of art in my opinion, but thats the point of this album. Opinions. Some will love this and call it a piece of art, and others will hate it and call it a piece of garbage. It is completely according to your own personal definition of music. I cannot reccomend this album, because even though it works for me, I cannot say with conviction that it will work for you. If you are open minded, and looking for something unusual and original, look no further.. on the other hand if you are looking for 'music', then walk on by.
Then wait until its dark, turn off all the lights and prepare yourself for the experience of a life time. Just think of it as one big song. Listen and learn, you mat be dissappointed but see beond the current guidelines of music and you will be impressed. I was!
This release has more in common with Mike's 'Pranzo Oltranzista' than, say tracks such as 'Cape Fear' or 'Omen' from the last album.This is no bad thing of course.....ambient layers of noise punctuated with crashes of guitar and drums and screaming vocals create such a nightmarish soundtrack, you'd think it was from a David Lynch movie.
In fact, go out and buy Eraserhead, turn the volume down on the TV and put this album on!
Fans expecting something closer to Tomahawk will be dissapointed, but this release is not worth missing, it demonstrates once again, just like Trey Spruance, how creative Patton, Dunn and co. are.
My only criticisms would be that to claim the release as an 'epic 75 minute track' is misleading, as the last 20 minutes are nothing but a loop of near-silence, which I found over-indulgent.
At times you get the sense that other quieter spells on the album lose their way a little and go on for too long, but these are easily forgiven as ther are always followed by a tremendous force of sound, leaving you wonder what will come next.
