I really don't know why but this reminds me of Dawn of the Dead movie a lot. Maybe it's the spoken part in Storm, seems like you're in the supermarket during a zombie apocalypse. Horrifying album. Fantastic movie.
The greatest instrumental rock album and the third best instrumental album (after Kind Of Blue and A Love Supreme) IMO.
The opening track "Storm" conveys a lot of different emotion in just one track. The beginning is victorious with trumpets and thundering drums making it sound like the most fantastic thing ever. The song then takes a dark turn and gets downright scary, before it end with some beautiful piano in the end.
The next track "Static" is more mysterious and starts and ends with static noise. In between where the actual instrumentation is, the track slowly builds itself up to a chaotic, unsettling climax.
"Sleep" is built around a beautiful and sad melody, that gives me tha feels all the time, and than the album ends perfectly with "Like Antennas To Heaven...".
Where their debut (F♯ A♯ ∞) was a brilliant dark, moody album, LYSFLATH takes it to the next level. It doesn't convey a single mood as well, but it wins on variety.
"Storm" hits you like a brick. An amazing brick.
When I first listened to this album, I knew nothing about it except that this site loves it and it has really long tracks. No other album has surprised me the same way this one did. I didn't even know this kind of music existed before I heard this.
Listening to this album is like watching a movie. It's a journey, and one that I would happily go on again and again.
They made it long, because 1 minute intro wasn't long enough
I wish I knew more about this album... to bad their isn't wikipedia about it... hehehe... no I mean like more commentary. I think putting context to things like this help A LOT. The AM/PM think really made me think... sometimes they are just trying to make money and sometimes they are super pushy... like give me money now you rich bastard (even though I'm not carrying cash). I guess I was thinking the whole time how the system is messed up. Wish I knew Spanish.
Because of the nature of this album it's not something spinning a lot, not terribly intriguing in the sense that I get it stuck in my head/has memorable melodies, etc.
BUT totally thought provoking, totally high quality art and worth a spin once a year or so.
This album is good.
Most of the people I know seem to prefer F# to this, but I've never quite understood why. This doesn't have the unnecessary intermissions, flows better and is generally a much stronger album than their debut, and while it may not be as consistent, the highs are higher and the lows aren't as low. The opener, "Storm", introduces the album's apocalyptic sound with one of the most powerful buildups in rock music. Although it sometimes teeters on the brink of excess, the album is one of my most-listened and retains a high standard lost on their many imitators.
