Cheery album title, eh? Indeed, this album starts out in pretty mournful mould, reminding me of one of the more sombre string sections from a Godspeed or Silver Mt Zion record. (There’s also something Constellation-like about the track listing, which contains wonders like “Dislocated Harmony i. into small Cold EYES ii. Several Miles Above”. Well, that or Rush-like, I suppose…) It’s compelling stuff, dense and elegant, and develops a rich complexity across it’s long tracks. The tone does subtly shift as the album progresses, and I find the ethereal drones of the final track (called simply “Ceremony”) to be quietly but persuasively uplifting.
I bought this from Boomkat. They call it Home Listening / Modern Classical / Ambient.
