05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
01. Big Noise 02. Outrider 03. Sweet Child Of Reeperbahn 04. Gunfight 05. Audio Whore 06. Cut The Costs 07. Sex Soldier 08. When Two Spirits Touch 09. Pull The Trigger 10. Foxy Lady [Jimi Hendrix cover]
Pretty good songs. It still sounds like Blue Cheer, but the band has started to lose its character here — it's not like in its old days anymore. Anyway, this stuff works too. I like it, but miss their old sound a bit.
