Have you heard the new True Widow LP Avvolgere?


#1

I think it is really awesome. The bass sound in particular is really nice. What to you guys think?


#2

It’s alright. I can’t really pinpoint any real problems with it (though the drummer does the same pattern on like every track), but I think it’s simply that their other albums are better. Their formula is already limited and it feels like they haven’t really grown at all.


#3

i think this is a fair summation. i don’t think its anywhere near as impressive as their other records and there aren’t too many stand out tracks. big fan of F.W.T.S.L.T.M. tho

i don’t think that they use the dual vocals anywhere near as well or as much as the previous records, which is one criticism…


#4

Okay, to be fair, I am not really familia with the older stuff. Seems like I should definitely check Circumambulation out.


#5

The drum sound is part of their appeal; to be mesmerizing, hypnotic or any other word describing consciousness.

It’s a fantastic album. I’d say their sound has matured like a fine wine.


#6

And just to avoid cliche, I mean.

In a Joy Division rather than Steely Dan kind of way.


#7

It strikes me as simply repetitive. This is true of past releases, but the stronger material made up for it.

Others have done better with less.
