So Sunn O))) seem to have been taking a liking to collaborations as of late. This in itself is not a bad thing, as Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley have already proven themselves as versatile musicians capable of adapting their sound on multiple occasions. This time around, however, the duo chose to work with Avantgarde musician Scott Walker, the results of which were unfortunately a bit like mixing oil with water.

Fun fact: a fellow immortal actually sent my review to Stephen O'Malley on Twitter and he didn't entirely take too kindly to it ("I don't see the point in sending this to me if you all neither liked nor understood our work"). I think the Lulu comparisons got him pretty salted

I'm sure a lot of people understood it. It wouldn't be getting all the bad reviews it's got if they didn't.

Surprisingly enough, I haven't really been able to find any more reviews of it even remotely like mine online (if you have, please link up). Most people have been praising it!

Life was a commercial for itself, endlessly replayed.
Nothing changed, it just spread out farther and farther in the form of neon ooze.

Well, then I was wrong. I assumed with the universally negative reviews on here, it must be similar outside.

Then again, I assumed the same thing about Aevangelist's latest two albums.

No. It is quite good despite the weird mix.

^ THIS.
The Drift must be one of the most frightening experiences I've ever had. Jesus effin Christ.
I still like this album and don't get the backlash it's had on this site, but ooohh well.

The Drift is the most terrifying album I've ever listened to. I honestly have a hard time listening to it at night. Awesome album. Tilt is pretty awesome too.

Unfortunately most metalheads will never check out Scott's music because they refuse to listen to anything that isn't metal. They probably hate this album because it's not metal enough.

If you like Walker's vocals then you should definitely check out some of his solo work like Bish Bosch, The Drift, and Tilt. It works far better on those three albums in my opinion.

Yeah, but maybe that's why it doesn't sound so bad to me on this album.

Finally got around to listening to this, and I enjoyed it enough to not hate it, but didn't really find it super interesting. Overall a "meh"
