                    Evo jedne fine recenzije

Brilliant, nuff said. - 100%
Written by megafury on October 22nd, 2003


I've been a huge fan of Maudlin of the Well for awhile now and have been anticipating on this release ever since I heard Maudlin of The Well would become Kayo Dot. When I first listened to this album, it was a lot to swallow on my first listen.

The music is unpredictable and that's exactly why I think it's brilliant. With only five tracks, the band accomplishes more musically than any other band with ten or twentey songs in a CD.

I'm sure a lot of metal people or anybody else that's impatient would say the music is kinda slow moving. This slow motion creates a rich lucious doomy atmosphere that settles in your head then later hits you with something you didn't expect, similar to the band Isis but more diverse, using different genres.

The first track, "Marathon", gets heavy after two minutes, then goes back to its slow moving music that eases your nerves, then all of a sudden, BAM!, it hits you with more heavyier music again and beautiful singing.

Second, there's, "A Pitcher of Summer", the shortest song at five minutes, a calm song with no real sense of structure, when the instruments are starting to pick up, they start trailing away in the begining, then it inevitably builds up with a haunting chorus. The song gets louder towards the closing. There's a good measure of where to put hard or soft parts in the music. This song kind of reminded me of Radiohead's song, "High and Dry" cause of the style of singing.

"The Manifold Curiosity" is the third song, with a lot to discover each time you listen, such as different instruments or vocal passages. In about four minutes into the song, there's an explosion of melody using numerous instruments, I don't think any other band is even capable of creating something that sounds like it cause of the variety of instruments being used.

At the end of this song, the band creates an intense chaotic blizzard of sound similar to what you'd hear in Strapping Young Lad's album, City, and the singer screams with a burning rage, like the singer in the Metalcore/Grindcore band, Converge, very heavy and reminds us that this band does use metal in their art.

Track four, "Wayfarer", is a song that transforms from eerie to lovely, with screeching violins that sound like they're being used for a horror movie and dramatic singing. There's a really good solo in this song too.

And now for the last track, "Antique", the song that gets as heavy as Dillinger Escape Plan and also ends up being kind of like a piano ballad song at the end.

One thing I've noticed in Kayo Dot compared to Maudlin of the Well is there wasn't that mush jazz elements, Maudlin of the Well was very jazzy. This new stuff is like Prog/Art rock, Doom Metal, Easy Listening, and Indie Rock, all with the band's own unique twist. I think everybody should give the album a shot and not judge it on the first listen since there's something new to find and appreciate in the music with each listen.

                    Poslednjih 4 minuta pesme "The Antique" me mnogo podseca na Sigur Ros, sto se stila tice (klavijature, ambientala, i boja glasa)

sto nikako ne moze biti lose  8)

                    Bath slusam dve godine i stoji mi kao naj album. LYBM imam dosta krace, mozda pola godine, nisam ga osetio kako treba jer je mnogo grublji, cak siroviji od Bath. Prvi album mi nije na "grom" tapetu jer sam ga prilicno malo slusao, mozda nedelju dana.
Ovaj... Malo je vremena proslo, Wayfarer mi je ispocetka bila najbolja pesma, tekst je jednostavno povijesan. Prava saga!
Manifold Curiosity i Antique su bas bas komplikovane pesme. Toliko o njima (vidite koliko su komplikovane, nemam pojma sta da izjavim o njima.
Na motW je bilo vise trumpetinga, jedan +  za njih. Kayo Dot se nekako topi u ustima, veoma licna muzika - svakome ko se iole udubi... veeliki + za ovo. mada... Nisam potpuno ukapirao zasto je ovo ekstenzija motW rada... I maudlin nije prog metal kako se negde pise.
Puno je drugacije od maudlin.
Zanima me kakva ce sledeca izdanja biti, jer ovo je prilicno korenita promena.

                    ovaj kayo Dot me ubi.


slusam ga bar jednom...a uglavnom bar 3 put svakog dana od kad sam ga nabavio...pitaj Apeiron-a...bio covk kod mene mesec dana i zna ceo album napamet i ako ih prezire smile.gif

to sto me izludjuje su MOMENTI na ovom albumu........album je prepun savrsenih momenata.....
neki delovi su tako savrseni da zelis opet da ih cujes...zelis da se opet ponove u pesmi...al se nikad ne desi...kompozicije su takve da pesma ide od poctka do kraja...a prica se ne ponavlja..nema refrena...nema prepoznatljive teme....

prvo me to strasno nerviralo...pa sam onda tek kasnije shvatio da je to njihova namera...i da su kompozicije u tom stilu savrsene....

album je velicanstven.....i definitvno "groundbreaking" sto se tice heavy muzike.......

omiljeni "momenti".....

- Marathon (the narration)

Azure-Lidded World...prelep deo..."an airplane, a puppet...."

-A Pitcher of Summer  (the abrupt ending)

" the flowers of the past will stretch their limbs into the sky
While
snow...."

nisu ni zavrsili text na kraju....*falls quietly all around*
genijalno...i sokantno za usi. smile.gif

- The Manifold Curiosty (chaos)

kraj pesme..onaj noisy agresivan deo...Neurosis meets Isis meets Opeth meets Darkthrone smile.gif
narocito onaj riff sto krece sa basom na samom kraju....zelis da ga ponovo cujes...ali naravno....neces imati tu priliku...pesme se zavrsila smile.gif

-Wayfarer (ups and downs)

cela pesma je predivna ali omiljeni deo mi je

"What seest thou, wayfarer,
Upon thy journey to a citrine sun?

Caves of candlelight with amethyst imbued,
Opal skulls of opal creatures decorating tombs!
Woods of columned water supporting ceilings breathing blue,
Seascapes fill‚d with poison, lonely, waiting for the few
Final scarlet denizens to march into the scorching fumes!"

violina je prelepo odsvirana u ovoj pesmi...i svi instrumenti su savrseno aranzirani u sklopu sa glasom.

-The Antique (the sigur ros-ish ending)

jos jedan prelep deo..ovo je mozda najblja pesma na albumu..ima svega ....volim pocetak...kad se gitare sklapaju jedna po jedna...prvo zvuci kao da se neko stimuje...i od jednom provalis da je pesma krenula...i da je sve na mestu.....agresvni delovi ove pesme su isto sjajni....ali ipak taj kraj.....magican je.

ona prljava..Mile Davis-style truba na pocetku tog dela...san!!
i klavir...ambientala...efekti na glasu.......nemoze bolje.....dodje mi da placem kad cujem.


album je naporan........ali kad ga svaris.......kao da si pronasao citav novi svet muzike....preporucujem!!

hail kayo dot! aj da ih dovedemo u BG smile.gif
