title track is too beautiful for this world, everything else is decent.

Nobody is out of place on this record

i mean they're out of place in a good way; like "cruel bloom" with von till and "wretched world" with genghis are obviously far off from what you'd expect from a converge record, both in terms of who's playing on those tracks and how they sound, but they're still phenomenal

What do you mean everything else is "decent"? Dead Beat is beautiful as fuck too. And Ben Koller's drumming, holy fuck.

You can just say perfect. But yeah, this is one of Kurt Ballou's finest productions.

...which means nothing. You don't say someone is not good at what they do based on the bad stuff they've done, especially when the good far outweighs the bad.



I don't get the gripe.

Kurt is generally involved in good stuff but I find that his production often sounds the same on many of the records he works on. Can sometimes feel kinda boring.

yea but that was ages ago and the production definitely sounds different to his recent work but a lot of his newer stuff is just that same super slick hi-fi crossed with noisy rough sounding instrumentation.

heard it man bleeder is 8/10 but it's kinda got that same ballou production yet sounds sufficiently different because of the non-hardcore style

btw the riff on "gnarcissist" from the EP is one of the best riffs of all time and i think about it like once a week without even listening to the record do you agree that that riff fuckin rockksssssss?
