On the morning of August 12, when I went on Bandcamp eager to listen to this new Horseback album in full, I saw a little blurb in the upper right corner that described it as music where "the distorted swagger of Neil Young's Crazy Horse sits at a table next to the haunted dronescapes of Sunn O)))." I burst out laughing then and there at how ridiculously silly this description sounded. But I would later regret it upon entering the realm of Horseback once more, and realizing just how accurate that label truly is.

Such a low rating already. Criminal. Reinforces what I've said in the past about how it feels as though many people downvote albums as soon as they can. Sure this puppy isn't as heavy and metallic as some of the prior material, doesn't mean it's shit. The core aesthetic of the band is definitely still present. Excellent release

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

Well it's really more like somewhere between 8 and 9 to me now after a few re-listens... closer to the former, actually, might change the rating.
It's certainly not 6 or 4 material though, I mean goddamn

Hard to go give ratings that fast. I still tamper with my ratings from last year

I find myself changing my ratings on things now and then, but not that often. I should say it definitely happens more with those really complex, multidimensional type releases that blend a lot of different genres together. Because they're the types where how you feel about them is likely to change the more you discover what the album's really all about, for better or worse

This album completely transports me to another time and place when I listen to it. Probably my new favorite Horseback album and one of the best releases this year imo. Would've given it a 9 if it went through some editing (cough, that last track, cough)

I am pretty curious about the downvoting of this album too. Personally I voted as the best ambient album of 2016.
