Album Review
Reviewed 2009-08-13 
Gloom, gloom, gloom. Slow guitar rock -- not metal -- with a serious air and simple, ritualistic beats. You won't rock out, but you might nod your head with some tracks.

Spare guitar chiming, thick church organ, bits of noisy noise. Male and female vocals, mostly indiscernible. I couldn't tell you what the songs are "about," but didn't hear any FCCs.

1- Spazzy, dredging, loud, in bursts. The exception.
2- Shimmering drone, ominous chiming. Real slow ending.
3- Downcast. A bit of spaghetti western twang.
4- Actually tuneful. Slow, chantlike. Spazzy screeches later
5- Robotic chant, quasi Buddhist chiming. Later, it rocks a bit
6- Buzzy slow organ, rustling noise background. Minimal vocal
7- Folky mid/slow riff. Witchy whispers
8- Pretty little vocal, quiet under tough guiar and squelching buzz. Spazzy final minute. (With a brief lyrical nod to Devo.)
9- Tense pulsing. Later forebody, slow organ. Fades after -4:00
HIDDEN- Track 9, starting -2:30 -- Single sad keyboard. Last 15 seconds REAL quiet.
