A great debut on any level. Portrays a raw attempt at what eventually became The Acacia Strain's signature sound.
Brutal lyrics with low-tuned, cleverly timed, meaty breakdowns. I still have no idea why a raven is like a writing desk
but neither did Poe. The conclusion of Sloth Loves Chunk makes my list of greatest Album Movie Quotes ever.
An unfortunately overlooked album. Eclipsed by their later works, espically 2008's 'Continent', '...And Life Is Very Long' stands as a sturdy stepping stone for The Acacia Strain. This is riddled with both faults and brief sparks of brilliance. Doppleganger holds host to one of this albums distinguished acoustic sections.
This record showed they had something to offer, and some really great tracks. But didn't have enough great tracks to make this a great album, but instead showed that their next album would probably be great.
