Review

Staff review by

Rating:
7.0
And the "Living In A Box" crown for repetitiveness* goes to… Ea, lord of the deeps, for the Ea, Ea, "Ea" trifecta. Ea features one lone, solitary, monolithic track with a two letter name in which the band plays some 47 minutes of doom.

Perhaps it was a case of exceedingly high expectations, but I found this ambitious piece disappointing.

  Has anyone else listened to this yet? I didn't even know it existed. :/

I still haven't heard it either. But I do know it supposedly out. But my guess is it will more of the same.

Craig has it from Solitude to review. I'm personally hoping it's more of the same but I suppose I'll have to listen for myself.

I actually found ea to be on a very very very slight downward slope since the debut. And it's something we've heard a lot before, which for this kind of funeral doom is killing for me.

Ya I know where you stand and I agree for the most part. Objectively I can quantify their accessibility going up and their boundaries shrinking, but on a personal level I happened to identify more with Au Ellai.

Rating: 7 Gotta say, although I haven't been listening to it all that closely, this isn't really grabbing me.

This is something a certain someone will go apeshit over

Funny you say that because that also occurred to me not long ago

Rating: 7 I've listened to it probably a dozen times, but always lights out when in bed*... still have not heard it through entirely conscious.

honestly, perhaps it was a case of really high expectations, but it's disappointing.

review will be coming out at some point.




* i sleep with mp3 player on, if i wake up at 4, just restart the track and fall back asleep.

  Gets much better towards the end, will probably listen to this 3 or 4 times (3 or 4 enjoyable listens) and then bury it alongside the old ones.
