Excellent album! It sonically descibres landscapes and surrounds you with a wall of sound. Everything is both original and incredoble. Take, for example, the way the riffs are both heavy and crushing but as ambient as your average post-rock band in the same breath. It must have taken them along time to create a sound which is the child of mogwai and the melvins. Its amazing. I really want to hear panopticon!

I saw scpttrerulz's review and disagreed so i just had to sound off for the first time to offer an alternative view. Melissa Auf Der Maur has a very impressive alt-rock CV as bassist for Hole and Smashing Pumpkins. However i think there's a lot of substance to her solo outing which earns it at least an excellent rating. Ok a lot of people will be put off by the apparent sillyness of certain songs but the vocals and music both come with a haunting quality. The guitars are given a lot of potential, using certain styles associated with everything from Hard Rock and Metal to MBV style indie and lashings of her previous act the Pumpkins. A Kyuss influence rears its head in certain of these songs, something which i couldn't quite place my finger on until she mentioned it in a web zine, giving them a heavy undertone, which seems to have been counterbalanced by her own indie style sophistication. I heartily recommend it.
