GENRE DEFINING ALBUM NOW RE-ISSUED ON CASSETTE!
This album is most reminiscent of early R.E.M. in that both use harmony to maintain a mood regulated by the dramatic extremities of vocal and guitar performance. Ambience derived from repetition over time and tension sustains an atmosphere of emotional darkness with internal complexity that turns the monolithic repetition of angst into a flowing narrative of lives beyond time. Fear this dark virus, but take it seriously: a masterpiece.
