If Marrow was any indication we all knew that this wouldn't have brilliant riffing, and while it still isn't fantastic there were more riffs in this song that I liked than were on almost all of Marrow.

Good - very good, in parts. Still (like Marrow) found lacking when compared to their previous work.

Yeah the production is good, the heaviness and intensity is good (and rather unexpected), the atmosphere is good - but now that I've finished it I can say that nothing really blew me away. Still very solid, though.

"I can say that nothing really blew me away. Still very solid, though."

my thoughts exactly, it's nice, but I can't think of too much more this band can do that would be innovative to their sound

I REALLY want to love Agalloch. But every time, there is something about them that I just can't grasp. "Ashes Against the Grain" is one of the most incredible albums I've heard, but the My Fortress is Burning trilogy just kills it for me. I really don't like those songs, though the rest is flawless. This is a 21 min song that would be really cool without the corny spoken word stuff and the gritty vocals. For me, at least. Still a great song, better than what I was expecting to say the least

Nees moar acoustic. Seriously, it was like 21 minutes of the same. I'm used to long tracks, and anything under 10 minutes seems pretty short to me nowadays... Yet, it was just too monotonous. Good, but kinda boring.

I find this song a lot like Marrow only that it takes listen upon listen upon listen (with undivided attention) to get into. This wouldn't be inherently bad... but Agalloch is already a band that requires multiple listens to click - they're just alienating prospective fans/fans that don't LOVE them

feanaro
June 27th 2012

They're also alienating fans who do love them by putting out music that just isn't that good.

so it went from "meh, with some pretty good parts" to "fuck yeah this is awesome" after the second listen. marrow of the spirit is the only disappointment in their discography so far.

Their first albums are some of the most up-beat, almost "positive" BM I've ever heard. I liked this song but I'm not afraid that they're running out of ideas. It's not like they haven't used their EPs to experiment with different styles before.
