Yeah. Definitely gonna be one of the albums of the year, without a doubt. Totally well worth the wait. I've always loved their tone, it's so unique.

If they can keep up the quality of the first song we got some AOTY shit incoming.

AOTY granted to a proggy post-rock album that goes nowhere and achieves nothing of worth, HOORAY FOR SENSATIONALISM.

Jesus christ you all need to develop some taste.
You disgust me.

Blue Lambency Downward is a wonderful experimental chamber-jazz/rock/etc. album that experiments heavily with unique forms and subtle climaxes...I don't see what that has to do with Jakob putting out another bland post-rock song that goes all twinkly and then all BWWOOOAAAARRRRRRR whilst still remaining pretty and then ending pretty again.

blue lambency is dull as hell tho

Not really, but I would expect that from someone who has only rated the two albums by Kayo Dot that are widely popular and more accessible than their other works.

i've heard all their full-length albums and rated every one of them except for blue lambency, which i need to digest more (now it's around a 2.5). but yeah, choirs and hubardo are their most accessible ones and also the only ones i've been able to fall in love with

lmao you could boil any song down to that kind of simplicity if you wanted to

besides that, it's not structure that makes this song so great - it's the layering of the guitar effects and the unique tone that jakob has. plus the great drumming, and i find their style of melody really evocative.

The drumming was pretty average.

in terms of technicality maybe but i think they subtly keep the momentum going really well

idk, everything just melds together well and i find their sound to be really powerful, i mean solace is my favorite album of all time
