This album is an experience not to be missed. If you do not have access to a butt-kicking stereo, then save your money and see them live. The experience does not translate to mp3/iPod.
The songs are generally slow-moving soundscapes painted with the textures of saturated tube distortion, analog synth and improvised drums. It is not, however an ambient album, nor soundtrack-like noodling, nor heavy metal novelty. The album has a classical arch structure, and the compositions themselves have all the elements of carefully composed “art music”. Transcendent.
