Lifetime goes adrift and the current plays with it, all along its untameable path. Whatever was in control before, now becomes the ocean's toy. Lives cannot dwell anywhere, only their absence is noticeable. The real landlords are the unpredictable surges coming from the tidal disorder. A remote sensation of Melancholy
is carried by the streams. The way it takes is untraceable. Reason, patterns and purposes all gave up, but Madness still takes its time to show up. In between, a state of dereliction leads a world of leeway. The prolific source isn't only releasing waters, it's freeing all kinds of strained things that used to obey to a violent and exacting order. Melancholy stands firmly against Dementia as among the flood and the perpetual drift, hides a pure delight, shy and unworldly.
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
