0.0 Space Jester | July 10th 17

Did that guy just complain about too much drone on a Boris album

3.5 greatXenophanes EMERITUS | June 23rd 17

Claims of revolutionism aside, it is very nice to hear Boris drone again.

4.5 superbComatorium. | July 7th 17

4.5 superbMeridiu5 | July 30th 18

make boris drone again!

4.5 superbRisodo | February 2nd 18

Incredible, intense, wonderful and at the same time cold, lifeless and utterly desolate. My first experience with Boris music is the best possible in this moment. The sound of damnation and the feeling of being faced with the end of times is intense in this album. All aspects are well harmonized and there is no need to use more weight in the instruments sonority. This is very noticeable on the disc which is just not perfect for reasons i can not explain in words.

Claims of overused quotes aside, it is very nice to hear Xenophanes use a dated Sput meme again

5.0 classicdecoyoctopus | July 15th 17

The best Boris album in years. I rank this album at the level of other Boris classics such as Flood, Feedbacker and Pink.

to much drone totally ruin it for me except for a couple of songs

3.5 greatErwann S. STAFF | December 11th 23

Dear starts off with slow sludgy drony shizzle (yeah that's Boris?) to slowly turn into slow sludgy drony shizzle that is fucking engaging, culminating in that apex of a musical moment that the solo in "Dystopia" is.

Bump

2.5 averageTheManMachine | November 11th 17

Upped .5 after seeing em perform it live. Plus they're Boris

Bump

3.0 goodthurs | October 18th 17

It's good, but not particularly memorable, nor particularly compelling. Some very heavy stuff as well as some good experimental stuff, but overall a lot of the same old Boris heavy Orange sound with soaring cleans and fun drumming. Feels like a lot of B-sides off their better albums, but done with some of their best musicianship and production.

Bump

1.5 very poorBRAman22 | August 28th 17

I found this to be quite a boring album. Sure it has its moments, the climax of Dystopia comes to mind, but these moments are buried under so much tedium that getting to them doesn't really seem worth it. Obviously, I'm not a Boris fan and this album has done nothing to sell me on them.

When life gives you diarrhea...

Bump

0.0 nocuffin | July 7th 17

realistically (given sput's fetishisation of metal and generally positive-skewed rating distributions) this should
flatten out at a 3.4 but since they're from JAPAN this'll be an insta-4+


"we're still sorry for the bombs, we just don't know how to prove it to you"
