Had to listen to this about 20 times before I could begin to wrap my mind around it. And
it still feels like I've only glimpsed a much greater landscape of emotions, so many of
which like determination, hope, and acceptance, I did not expect. It's going to take me
years before I fully grasp what happens to me when I listen to this, if I ever do. rI
honestly believed Perfectly Calm was the ultimate doom album, that no grander range of
emotion, with no greater soul splitting impact was possible. And Closure just blows that
away. Every aspect of the music, from the songwriting, to the instrumentation,
progressions, breaks, builds, vocals, lyrics, everything has improved but none so much
as the ability to produce a soundscape that conveys emotion that is concurrently clear
and vague, precise and imperceptible at the same time. rI'm listening to the title track
as I write this and even though I feel like I "get it", somehow I know I really don't.
And I will listen until I do.
