Staff pick by
!J.O.O.E.!

16.05.2011 Ok ignore that last classification, that was just a bit of self-indulgence. Then again who knows, it might catch on. This is something that positively vomits underground mass appeal; the kind of thing if more people were aware of they'd be frantically sprinting to the nearest tattooist to get the cover art etched into their forehead. Planet-sized dirges (appropriately enough) that melt into epic cleans and deep ambient nuancing over a monolithic 75 minute journey of dripping atmosphere, texture and melody with the odd Jesu and Cult of Luna inflection.

Quite possibly the only album you'll need this year? Oh yeah, they're French too. Quelle surprise.

Thanks for the link.

Collin was kind enough to fix that problem for me.

I was pleased with what I heard so far.

Rating: 8 Well, this one sure draws you in, doesn't it? Much of this album seems perfect and beautiful. They could teach a class on setting up atmosphere. Although there are a few moments where it starts to drag a bit, it always picks right back up where you left off. Excellence.

The last song is fucking monumental; Just crushing keyboards and samples. It makes you want to come back and listen again if you know what I mean

I love this album


I listened to 8,426 albums last year and when all the dust settled (like the play on words ) this album was the pinnacle...

Rating: 9 Excellent album and I'm surprised that I'm still playing it since I heard it last year.
