5.0 classicTurnerinc | April 24th 08

I bought this album on a whim, it was a friday and I thought hey what the heck, I'll pick up an album I've never heard before. Was pokin around, saw the cover, turned it over and saw they were a local band. I thought, for 13.99, I might as well just giver.

Well, I get home, spin up a joint, pop this bad boy in, and was blown away. Theres not one track on this album that I didn't enjoy, even more specifically, theres not even one portion of music I did not like. As soon as the end of "Queens Will Play" kicked in, I knew I had a new top 10 favorite band
---
It's almost as if Portishead had become close friends with the Black Keys, and they travelled back in time together. I can't say enough good things about this album. Buy it.

Eclectic and accessable. It's great to hear a band that does not fit any genre. This Vancouver-based band will satisfy most who enjoy expressive, soulful, grinding, beautiful music that doesn't take itself too seriously. Dark, brooding, and hopeful --- full of contradictions - After you're done listening you really feel that you've experienced something wonderful and organic. They've been compared to Black Sabbath, which is not really accurate. They just will occasionally break down into a killer, heavy riff as a transition to the next musical idea --- just listen. It really is worth it and Black Mountain's "In The Future" holds up to repeated listenings very well. (their first eponymous album is also great, although not as good as this one) --- spread the word ...... these guys deserve to have a greater audience.
