Haunting, Soulful, Stunning
I use soulful for want of a better word - this album cuts to the core, and fills you up with a sorrowful contentment. It feels like the moment after a horrible devastating loss - the pain and the anguish fills you, energizes you and takes you over, eventually leaving you calm and collected by the end.
The album envelops you like a fog right from the start - smoothly and completely, but not quite their usual jarring open. "Fire Walker" is a beautiful and dark track (and reminds me at times of their cover of Jace Everett's "Bad Things").
"Let the Day Begin" was released a while ago, and is an outstanding, very BRMC sounding cover of The Call's original. A direct nod to their sound engineer Michael Been, their extraordinarily talented sound engineer, former member of The Call, and father to bassist Robert Been (of BRMC), who passed in 2010.
"Lose Yourself", the final track, is one of the most powerful songs I have heard in a long time, and resonates with you long after the last chords (also the first chords!) fade away. It hums like the Raveonettes, and has a build a bit like the one in Bloc Party's "Sunday".
Truly an outstanding album, though sure to prompt some fans to ask "what happened to my BRMC"? Just when we thought it wasn't possible, it got even better.
Fan from the get go
High quality head phones, dark room, TV set to nature channel, let your eyes almost close so the changing light of tv comes through, give it a good listen. Fu!?#%g amazing!
Heard it live at the Troubadour
First and foremost, this band is the best live act/band at the moment hands down. Moreover they played a handful of these tracks, such as openning with Let the Day Begin as well as others I won't know the name of until this preorder comes. All I know is that this is what happened to my rock and roll. It is called BRMC. Buy this album and every other album while you are at it. Can't wait for the album.
