This is definitely one of the best albums of this year. I would also like to say one of the most engrossing “metal” albums I have ever heard. It is so engrossing because it owes more to the classical compositions of the fifteenth century chamber music and Alice Coltrane/Pharoah Sanders than an early Earth record. I would say that anyone who has not liked Sunn O)) before should definitely check this one out. I was never a fan before (and I still don’t like their other records even if I respect where they were coming from) and I am completely in love with what they have done this time. I really hope they expand on what they did here. The highlight of the album for is definitely “Alice”.
