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.

member of the true crusade against old school heavy metal, early 80s thrash, NWOBHM, traditional doom, first and second wave black metal, old school death metal, US power metal, 70s prog rock and atmospheric doomsludgestoner. o/

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