4.0 out of 5 stars A very accomplished EP, 31 Oct. 2012
This review is from: The Stolen View (Audio CD)
Leech's The Stolen View opens with the stunning `Silent State Optimizer' a song that sounds like it could have been made by Air had they laid some huge prog-rock guitar riffs over some of Moon Safari's sleepy numbers. This is an awesome instrumental, both subtle and powerful.
`The Man with the Hammer' is filled with echoic guitars and down-tempo drums that are occasionally punctuated by glockenspiel rings. At about the half-way point, the song goes all prog with swooping guitar solos and clunky metal riffs. It's a highly detailed and textured piece of music that brings to mind some of the indulgent metal riffs of Coheed and Cambria.
`Inspiral' uses beautiful layers of arpeggio guitar and sci-fi synths building to backward-masked guitars, pulsating feedback and chiming bells. By the end of the piece, the music becomes reminiscent of some of the more epic moments of Smashing Pumpkin's Siamese Dream, with literally dozens of fuzz-laden guitars washing over the mix and creating a feeling of warmth and energy.
`Totem and Tabu', at over 20 minutes in length, is epic in every sense of the word. It is musically somewhere between Mastodon, Slint and Shellac: it is deliberate, fractured and moves through a number of phrases and themes. It's an incredible piece of music that could at one point be described as face-melting metal, and at another as lush and sublime.
