The Retribution Gospel Choir represent catharsis, for both performers and audience. However, that’s not really the same as being a dynamic artistic force and prosaically speaking, 2008’s Retribution Gospel Choir debut already answer the question ‘what would Low sound like if they were loud?’ 2 doesn’t really alter that answer, and thus doesn’t quite have its predecessor’s impact.»
