Guest review by

Two years down the road after Pelican's third release Echoes and they are back yet again to share with us their crushing instrumental metal. As a reminder, Echoes stirred some controversy among fans, many of them blaming the band's shift into a cleaner and less dense sound while others were accepting the slight change and were able to get on with their lives. Hence, it doesn't come as a surprise that the expectations for What We All Come to Need were like a bag of mixed nuts. Many different assumptions and feelings were involved before the release of the album. A dramatic and confusing time for the internet it was. As we fast forward through time back to the present a few months after the new album hit the shelves, I can safely share my impression on it.

  This album is ok I guess. Just listened for the first time a few minutes ago.

Its weird, I know its good, but I did not feel the same excitement of Australasia and March Into The Sea This one is gonna need more spins.

  This stagnating and involuted post-boredom slop definitely isn't what we all come to need.

Rating: 8 The track Ephemeral is amazing and very very surprising
