Album Review

Come's music has always been a bit difficult to come to terms with, but it rewards repeated listens immensely. Nowhere is that more true than on their fourth album, Gently, Down the Stream. Although it's a lengthy, dark album, it's arguably their most accessible, since the rage that flowed throughout Don't Ask Don't Tell and Near Life Experience has turned into a resigned bitterness, and that means there aren't as many all-out sonic assaults.

It's not as immediately bracing as Don't Ask Don't Tell, but it's worth the extra effort to deal with Come's ambitious, difficult music.
