Review

Staff review by

Rating:
8.5
If you were to ask the average person, it's likely that "black metal" and "technical" may not entirely be two things they would think of as going very well together. Fortunately for Chicago outfit Murmur, however, this fusion appears to be working out just fine, with some pretty splendid results. Brace yourselves, kiddies: the sun is colliding with the Earth, and we're in for some heavy weather.

Rating: 6 The drumming on this is particularly impressive.

  Initially, I thought it is new Murmuure and was surprised, because that project is defunct now.
Anyway, let's check this out...

Haha, yeah shame it's not the other band.

I actually deleted the staff pick; I'm not as keen on it as I thought I would be. It's a little aimless and not that enjoyable to listen to.

Rating: 7 Huh, I didn't expect a rating this low (6.8 currently). I have to say I like this album, but it's nothing amazing.

You mean you didn't expect a rating that's only 0.2 lower than the one you gave it?

Hahaha. Well, I'm kind of torn between giving this a 7 or an 8. After only 2 spins I don't really feel it's worthy of an 8, so I went with the 7 rating.

Rating: 9 Impressive stuff. This is like King Crimson gone dirrty, that cover at the end makes a lot of sense.
Can't believe the overall rating :/

Seems to be my first impression as well.

Rating: 8 I like this album quite a bit- I think because of its uniqueness but I'm not sure. Once I turn it on, I'll listen to it for days and it doesn't get old. Definitely different.
