pretty fucking hot.
A lot more noise and doom influenced than their other efforts- the Sunn O))) influence is pretty clear to me - but still has some colossal riffs and eastern style segments. Album of the year very possibly. Good to see that instrumental rock isn't dead in the water in terms of evolution and experimentation.
I hope they tour over here at some point.
Great band, fantastic record.
i first listened to it when i was driving through death valley, it was pretty darn fitting.
My favourite Grails record since Black Tar Prophecies.
warmed to it yet. I was naively hoping for Burning Off Impurities 2 which it clearly isn't.
Not sure if noise really fits them as their brilliance has always been the subtler, more delicate side of instrumental music.
Still, I'm hopeful that it will slot into place soon.
DAMN YOU CASHFLOW, DAMN YOU TO HELL
but I'm not sure how much yet. It's nowhere near as instant as Burning Off Impurities, and needs a few more listens I think.
I'm glad they're over for ATP, I think I would've probably voted for them anyway.
'Burning Off Impurities'. Possibly their weakest album. I reckon:
The Burden Of Hope > Black Tar Prophecies > Doomsdayer's Holiday > Take Refuge In Clean Living = Redlight > Burning Off Impurities
contains Silk Road, which is one of the finest instrumental songs ever produced. Enough said really.
but we're talking about Grails, and all of their albums have superb individual tracks. Even if I though Silk Road was their greatest ever tune, I'd still rate Burning Off Impurities behind all their other albums.
