4.5 superbSabra Net Wore CONTRIBUTOR | October 18th 14

The title track takes a long time to get going, but everything else is absolutely on point here. That 3.5 average is a damn crime against humanity, seriously.

4.5 superbPatchworkNeurology | May 24th 08

Wow, where to begin with this? I feel as if i've listened to this enough times to give a breif oppion, but I believe my bad grammar and spelling will do this an injustice. This album is more or less an experience, personaly I kind of figured the band would go in this direction.
Kayo Dot is expiermenting with different sounds and wandering away from their old "Metal" tag they were pinned with. Finding Toby Driver now focusing on composing material which sounds like modern day classical music, instead with crushing guitars and an assortment of other insturments carfuly and curisouly displaying their moments to shine and guide you through this monster of an album.
If you think Kayo Dot without the heavieness will be interesting the definly check it.

Most of Blue Lambency Downward doesn't really do it for me, flowing by in a kind of haze, too slow and meandering. Toby Driver has stated that with this record he was attempting to make meaningful crescendos without resorting to tempo/volume increases or layer additions, and I'm not sure he fully succeeded. It's difficult to say whether these songs crescendo or not, which, I suppose, means that they don't. I appreciate how Driver isn't repeating the same album over and over, but the bottom line is that I just don't find this particular effort a very interesting or enjoyable one. 2.3

One of my favorite albums by Kayo Dot--although they're all good, IMHO. Creeps the living
daylights out of me though, for some reason...
