Wow, Mono must really hate their parents.

3.0 goodEli EMERITUS | August 16th 12

If I had to pick one band that is doing the least in progressing the genre, it would be a close race between rExplosions in the Sky and Mono. But what Mono lacks in originality (this is the exact same album they've rreleased over and over again) they make up for with their dramatic and emotive delivery. Bland, uninspired, rand derivative, "For My Parents" isn't going to change anyone's opinions on this band, but am I a sucker for rdem climaxes.

1.5 very poorJonny Hunter CONTRIBUTOR | August 18th 12

Couldn't help but cringe during some of those crescendos. The title suggests this album might have some personality, but it's utterly lifeless and dry. blegh.

I could write a horribly negative review for this, but it'd be pretty much exactly what Eli already said

2.0 poorDarkNoctus CONTRIBUTOR | August 16th 12

more of the same but less. tepid, linear and without what made what mono so formulaic before forgiveable. it does very little outside what your every day hollywood soundtrack would do. :[r""For My Parents" isn't going to change anyone's opinions on this band, but am I a sucker for dem climaxes." what climaxes? this album barely even utilizes any real or satisfying climaxes, which is one of my biggest issues with it. ]:

1.5 very poortomlop | September 17th 12

I can't begin to understand what it was they were trying to convey with this album. I was a huge fan of Hymn to the Immortal Wind, but this just seemed underwhelming in comparison.

I think we need more post-coital and less post-rock

Nobody listens to Mono for something radically different from the post-rock norm. I think it's wise that we keep this in mind.

Bump

4.0 excellentdnpnts | August 24th 12

This album sounds like the end of the formula Mono has been using for the past few releases. Which I think is a good thing as they should be pursuing different textures and sounds.

3.0 goodMatthew D. French | August 20th 12

i used to agree with you, jared p =[

5.0 classicvenonoso | August 20th 12

This album is nothing short of a masterpiece. Mono better themselves with each and every album and "For My Parents" proves it. This album is uplifting, devastating, mesmerizing, poignant, and absolutely breathtaking. Words feel inadequate to describe this musical experience. Each and every track is brilliant.rMost Favorite Track: Nostalgia

@DarkNoctus I've never heard Hollywood produce anything similar to this, so if you could provide exactly what you're comparing this to...

Bump

4.5 superbIanDavila | August 17th 12

With the commitment of make a tribute to the formers of any generation, Mono delivers an ensemble of symphonic hymns of joy and nostalgia, focusing on the ambience and spectrum of sound rather than the assemble of explosive climaxes, Mono take their landmark sound to an honest, strong and personal statement.

Bump

4.0 excellentStagnantwords | August 16th 12

More of the same, but when the same is consistently this beautiful, why would you even want change at all. Record is more comparable to Explosions In The Sky then any of their previous records. Unseen Harbor may be my song of the year at this point
