Rating: 8 Absu is probably the only american BM band I've ever listened to, so I decided to try out their whole discography. This, their first is pretty damn good for a debut. Although the production (unsurprisingly) sounds raw, it can be overlooked by the atmosphere created here. 'Fantasizing...' is an absolute epic in its own right and closer 'An evolution of hearts' is symphonic yet eerie at the same time.
