Flooded Lives in search of a grip on their destiny had to find something substantial. But destiny itself died out and the quest quickly began to wander. Scattered amongst swamps, Obduracy showed the roots' path, but the roots got thinner and thinner, until the roots and soil melted into each other. Then Hope pointed skyward, as if exits were waiting up there. But the clouds got thicker and thicker, until nothing was left under, but a boundless mist. Beyond the sky's limits, fog spilled all over the stars' cover, putting out their fire. The last word came from Pride, who decided to take the earthly path despite the lack of horizon and steady substance. Lives became surrounded by bleak forests growing darker than ever, disrupting the already troubled guidance. Then the ground collapsed, and Pride sunk into deep-sea trenches. Lives coiled themselves around the senseless vacuum growing inside. Meanwhile, inner wildness vanished.
This album breaks conventions with most post-metal. It at once can be played next to shoegaze then breaks out into a fury of aggression and still remain catchy. For my money Rosetta are at the top of the food chain. After all the amazing albums Rosetta has, it boggles the mind that they can still innovate and surprise me. I love that I can play this next bands as diverse as Ride, Slowdive, Joy Division, The Cure, Godflesh, and Neurosis. It's a pure delight on the ears. Bryon Wilson - divIder
