the only bad thing about this album is that it makes every other thing I listen to completely and utterly obsolete

I went into this wanting to like it, but never quite succeeded (not yet, at least). After fairly many listens, I still feel relatively neutral towards Deathconciousness as a whole. While it has incredibly powerful moments, i.e. Bloodhail, Earthmover, it has just as many moments devoid of this power. I feel like many of the tracks could have benefitted from more vocals. The instrumentals are adept, but aren't quite interesting enough to stand alone, and merely provide a backdrop for the better music on here.

For some reason, you will no longer be the person you believed you once were. You'll detect slow and subtle shifts going on all around you, more importantly shifts in you. Worse, you'll realize it's always been shifting, like a shimmer of sorts, a vast shimmer, only dark like a room. But you won't understand why or how.

The Tallest Man on Earth The Wild Hunt
In a year where I inexplicably (and somewhat embarrassingly) resisted the inevitable hype behind certain rrecords and flat-out refused to hand out a 5 to any in particular, The Wild Hunt is certainly the most-rdeserving of all the thrill surrounding it. Guitar on his lap and sweet, wavering voice on hand, Sweden's rKristian Matsson crafted 2010's most enchanting album. There's simply nothing to hate and everything rto love when it comes to The Tallest Man On Earth. From the sweet, soaring imagery to the jangly, upbeat rrhythms of Matsson's virtuosic guitar-playing... each part is a perfectly interlocking piece of the puzzle rthat, upon completion, adds up to the best album of the year. With every croon, every offbeat, wistful rmelody, I'm reminded again and again why folk was the genre that pulled me into music in the first place, rand why The Tallest Man sits atop the genre today. There's a fine line between what makes an album rexcellent and one that truly separates itself from the pack, from the drooling onlookers that couldn't rquite reach the levels of intensity, of strength of feeling, of catchiness or consistency. In 2010, The rWild Hunt defined what it meant to be on the other side of this line.
