Reseña de álbum

Not calling Kayo Dot a metal band is difficult, because there aren't many other genres that leave you with the punched-in-the-gut feeling you get when listening to the group's debut. Calling them metal and pointing out they're on John Zorn's Tzadik label makes things worse, because Kayo Dot is not a frenzied Naked City or Boredoms-styled band either. Plus there's the classical side, woodwinds and all, rubbing up against a mighty guitar's echoing bar chord. When they let loose they're like Sleep or Isis, and when they calm down they're like Rachel's or This Mortal Coil minus the noodling. That's probably the most satisfying thing about Choirs of the Eye — it's an extremely well-paced and a structured listen from start to finish, with little that's overdone. It's crushing, epic soundtracks one minute and precious chamber music the next. But Kayo Dot isn't buying into the soft-loud-soft thing like all of the Mogwai followers; the band should win your trust when it comes to composition right away. It takes nearly 13 minutes to get to the quick thrash and riffing that closes "The Manifold Curiosity," but it wouldn't be the wall-puncher of a payoff it is without the reflective buildup. Follow it with the Spanish guitar of "Wayfarer," and it becomes obvious right away that this is not wallpaper music but an album to get lost in, preferably alone and uninterrupted. To throw another comparison around, lead singer Toby Driver does sound a heck of a lot like Jeff Buckley, but Buckley would have a hard time hitting the primal screams as loud as Driver does. It's a lot to take in, but it's worth it. Plenty of bands have practiced this cerebral, absurd kind of genre combination, but Kayo Dot makes them seem like charlatans. One wishes the very idea of chamber rock had never been explored before and saved for the skilled and attractively arcane Kayo Dot. Think Pink Floyd's attitude around the time of Meddle: try anything to see if it pays off while paying close attention to the details. Plus you don't so much "get it"; it's more about "feeling it."

This is incredible

I have been struggling to come to grips with this album for almost two years now and, well thats an obnoxiously long time. However, i think the complexity and depth of the music is so intense and ever changing that it took that long to fully understand what i was hearing. And what do i hear? Jazz, folk, the violent explosion of metal, electronics . . . all present. But above all is beauty. Majesty. The ebb and flow of musical tides. Dangerously violent cacophonies of sound threaten to drown us, threaten to pull you under and give up. Untill driver pulls the plug, allows the music to flow down, ebb away, and float into gorgeous sonic atmospheres. Delicate guitars, ethereal horns and brass, spoken word. Toby Driver has created the musical equivalent of a Jackson Pollack painting. People call it "pointless drudgery", "aimless", "childish" and they are all right at times. The music can be close to painful in the noise it creates, and some of the compositions are aimless and noisy. but people are also right in saying that Kayo Dot is visionary, brilliant, and exhilarating. Driver aims the groups musical cannon at the canvas and out explodes horns, guitar, voice, the jaggedness of metal and all those elements mentioned earlier; out this cannon comes crafted layers of sonic paint. Choirs is truly an adventure. please dont give up before you've had the chance to properly explore the sound scape. it may take 2 years, it make take less, it may take a lifetime (i wouldnt suggest that, its clearly not a healthy choice) but given time this album grows lush and beautiful. Its challenging music, and almost the masterpiece it intends to be.

So Inspiring and Addictive

The beauty in this album is overwhelming. Its dismal and meloncholy and at times anxiety-ridden and filled with tension and unease. This album truley is an experience.

Perfect

An airplane a puppet an orange a spoon a window an outside stars and the moon. Perfection.

Epic washes of crunchy guitar and sophisticated modern chamber music combine in the world of Kayo Dot. After the progressive metal-oriented Maudlin of the Well disbanded in late 2002, some of the group's members were lost, and a change of direction was needed. Toby Driver (vocals, guitar, electronics), Greg Massi (guitar, vocals), Nicholas Kyte (bass, vocals), Sam Gutterman (drums, vocals), and Terran Olson (keyboards, flute, clarinet, saxophone) carried on and formed Kayo Dot in early 2003.
