Alright. I'm gonna start off by saying that i only got into Mouth of the Architect not too long ago, but i am far from disappointed. This band captures the essence of music that I've searched for forever and only come up short to find. Once I finally discovered Mouth of the Architect it was awakening in my musical spirit. "The Ties That Blind" is literally like nothing else i have heard on Earth. With the exquisite tuning that changes from riff to riff and the vocals that brutally open you up and seem to physically scar you, this album packs an emotional twist to a powerful sound.
The song list starts with the best song on the album, "Baobab". "Baobab" goes from heavy to soft and then kicks back in again with a solo to end it off. "No One Wished To Settle Here" is up next, and it delivers repetitive but lingering riffs that lead you farther, seemly trying to make you see further into the song before it happens. "Carry On" delivers an extremely slow start that kicks in and intricately designs the strong finish around the constant thematic mood. "Harboring an Apparition" is the fourth track that gives the harder riffs a chance to unfold, and doesn't disappoint. "At Arms Length" comes at a strong point features Brett Hinds of Mastodon which is one of the very reasons I chose this album over all the others on ITunes. Let's say this vocals never let me down. And the finishing blow to the masterpiece is "Wake Me When It's Over" which is the longest track. this track is a great summation to the mood expressed and effectively closes out the album and its main progressions.
All in all, "The That Blind" more than suffices for a great sound and unbelievably great design in the music world. Mouth of the Architect is at the top of the Atmospheric Metal genre and will continue to appear to all whom it appelas.
