Review Summary: A beautiful, interesting contender for Unwound's best album.Leaves Turn inside You
is the ultimate October album (hence the song, October All Over
). It creates a feeling sadness, but makes one think about things they rarely think about. At least that was the way it was with me. Unwound took a big step from their punk/noise rock fury that was their earlier albums, and create a beautiful masterpiece that is often overlooked.
brings back memories of the more aggressive Unwound, while still keeping the depressing and emotional feel of the present album. Below The Salt
is possibly the best song on the album, certainly the longest. Terminus
has a beautiful orchestra section of the song, something I'm very glad Unwound experimented with. Look A Ghost
is probably the most upbeat song on the album, and it's quite good. A giant leap from earlier Unwound songs, Justin experiments with whispered vocals, and they blend perfectly, telling a story of, well, a ghost. Other song topics include demons, summer freezes, and december. Which just increases the feeling of cold and gray that the album already potrays.
Leaves Turn inside You
is an excellent album by an excellent band that is often overlooked. It's a good listen, but gets very depressing.
