Review: “The first thing you hear is an ebbing and flowing of a wall of sound…”

September 10, 2011

The music blog Is This Revolutionary? posted a review of “Hymns of Mare Nostrum” yesterday.

Here is an excerpt:

“The band itself has a very unique style. Not sticking to either the previously mentioned ambiance, an intense And So I Watch You From Afar sound, or anything else in particular, it’s very hard to describe what they were going for, which I think it good, all in all.”

The writer did not like the theremin on “Practical Applications in the Metaphysical” though. He writes:

“The last track, however, annoyed the shit out of me… It really would have been an incredible piece if not for that high-pitch whatever that just kept making noise over a really good baseline.”

He gave us a rating of 3.5 out of 5.

    The guy wrote, “baseline”, I’m not a linquist or anything, but do believe it is bassline or bass-line. Not knowing the difference discredits the guy 100% thus 3.5/5 is now 4.9/5. I think the guy has high “baseline” levels of crack in his system that he free “based” off some tin foil before he wrote the article. I’m “basing” these comments on how awesome all the basslines and bass drums are through-out the album. Eh, but what do I know? I’m just a musician, well and a mathematician. Namaste.
