09:01 - Apothecary Everything in Enslaved's discog is pretty engaging and high quality if you ask me, they're remarkably consistent. Only one of their full lengths has below an 8 on here, and even then it's a 7.9. That says a lot
08:56 - Stereolab42 The lower-rated Enslaved albums are lower-rated for a reason. Blech. They have crazy-good highs and boring-ass, sleep-inducing lows.
07:27 - Apothecary I might prefer only AOE to Monumension, but I've been listening to the latter a lot over this past weekend, and I'm thinking that may change pretty soon
I have to ask, because well, they both are female doom duo's.
Not in the slightest. MoT are uptempo and caustic, Undersmile are slower and heavier (the guitar tone itself must weigh as much as the moon). Vocally it's primarily overlapping twin-female cleans, but of the very weird, off-kilter, psychedelic chanting type, much like Bloody Panda.
Argh, still can't get over how much I should love this, how much I want to love this, how much I actually love this when I put it on, and how I'm pummeled to the ground exhausted by the time I'm at track 4. Way too long for its own good, which is a pity. I love it but I find myself spontaneously listening to it very rarely since it's such an investment, both of my time and my energy.
