I'm digging this way more than I did New Bermuda. They just seemed like they were on autopilot there. Seems like they've started to toy with different aspects of their sound again, and it's really helped the dynamics of their songwriting.

I will say, though, anyone expecting an album of riffs will be supremely disappointed. The album is almost This Will Destroy You-levels of chill and atmosphere.

"I will say, though, anyone expecting an album of riffs will be supremely disappointed. The album is almost This Will Destroy You-levels of chill and atmosphere. "

the fuck are you talking about? the overuse of obnoxious lead guitar riffs and solos are one of my least favourite parts about this album. i find them obtrusive and mood-killing more often than not.

last 3 tracks are definitely the best here.

without looking - i will guess that most songs are around 10 minutes, guitars play the same two mid-high pitched chords the entire time, blast beats, incomprehensible vocals so low in the mix that you can hardly tell they are there.
How close am I?

they were good on sunbather/demo when he was trying to be raspy and black metal, then on sunbather it sounded like he got into screamo all of a sudden but wasn't good at it.

not sure yet how it compares to sun bat her, but this is easily better than New Bermuda. it was still good, but that album was just loaded with these weird, jarring transitions and the whole thing just felt kind of underwritten. this one feels way more thought out.

"Why do links never work for me on sput :/"
Because https:// links (which are the common standard now) don't work here, but http:// links do, and just redirect you to the https. So, fixed (by deleting the "s").

nah the solos in the second half actually got better and worked with the chord progressions in the rhythm section to make an actual atmosphere and consistent melodic movement so it was better. Not a great song but dec. Thankfully im on Honeycomb now tho and i already know it's pretty dec.

@zar you'll get more annoyed with the solos/lead guitar as you go. they're one of the worst bits of the record easily. most of the time they have absolutely no idea where they want to be and they kill the mood so quick.

you never know whether they'll come out with a great riff (canary yellow) or completely ruin a track's momentum (last half of glint)

I think this is def the most interesting work they've put out since Sunbather, I think they could def shave off some time to make the songs a little less ropey but it's got more standout moments than New Bermuda imho. Def looking forward to how they progress from here.

hot take (apparently): new Bermuda is good, and on certain days I prefer it to sun bat her. maybe its just where I was at the time when it came out. but the same could be said for sbh tbh

also, I enjoy this. its their happiest sounding, too bad the lyrics here are so...whats the word...damn I dont know. they're not concrete enough for me. ill have to read more interviews

yeah I will admit this was underwhelming having heard it 3 times now but it's better than new Bermuda but not by much. also yeah ive been saying they sounded like a parody of themselves on their last album but yeah that still applies here
I don't know why they threw in so many odd(in a bad way) leads and little solos all over this. those were some of the worst parts of their last one (baby blue, gifts of earth) and they seemed to have capitalized on it here, welp

This is infinitely more interesting than New Bermuda. New Bermuda just felt unfocused and incomplete, OCHL actually feels like the band actually cared about making solid songs from start to finish. I also think their Post Rock sound is just flat out better than their Black Metal formula, not saying it's weak, but their Post Rock sections absolutely destroy bands like Explosions in the Sky.
