Pelican have been around for 8 years now and this is their 4th album. Their sonic evolution from pummelling riffage on the early EP and Australasia to City of Echoes' more stripped down and textural approach has been topic of discussion of many a heavy music fan. You see - lovers of Pelican's music can usually be separated into two camps; a) the heavy sh-t and b) the swirly psychedelic progressive sh-t. I myself enjoy both aspects but tend to lean towards the heavy stuff. The monstrous riffing on early tracks like `The Woods' and `Drought' is hard to ignore.

With subsequent albums, Pelican have become masters of weaving instrumental guitar passages in and out of one another: of spiralling intertwining distorted melodies up into the heavens where the God of the Almighty Riff nods his approval. Yet, nothing really seems to happen anymore. There aren't any tension and release moments - no big build-ups into cathartic crescendos. Sure, it's fun listening to their riffs bob, weave and uncoil for 7mins at a time but us fickle listeners need a reward at the end of it. The early material was so brutally simple and powerful in it's sheer relentless heaviness that it was cathartic in itself - no crescendo needed - you're already in one my friend. The newer material - particularly their previous album, City of Echoes, sacrificed the simple, heavy riffs for the (actually quite stunning) intricate guitar interplay that they're now renown for. The primal factor has been overthrown by sophistication. Whilst it's impressive and still brilliant music it's just not as engaging as before.

What We All Come to Need definitely continues in the same vein as City of Echoes - textural, intricate and generally shorter track lengths.

This is the first Pelican album I bought and really was a bit of a shot in the dark. I like Isis and Cult of Luna so at a fiver I thought I would give it a go. £5 well spent! Its superb. Mind blowingly good. Not as dark as Isis but heavy, absorbing and atmospheric. Just one track with vocals. The rest is instrumental. Highly recommended.

I have never heard of the group and only discovered them when I Googled a reference to them in a book I was reading. I liked the fact that the albun only has one vocal track, the weekest in my mind. Best played loud.
