sample the album:
A beautifully building release of guitar and percussion, one long track that adds intensity through minimal chords, ringing cymbal tones and shaken percussion, over time breaking through to Fripp-ian chords and driving drums. It's quite a journey, music that quietly sneaks up on the listener to slowly enveloping them in a hailstorm of ferocious sound.
