Nature was once made of woods and solid Lives, now it's all waters and streams. It may have been just a concept after all. Yet, there is no choice either, the surroundings are established as the unavoidable circumstances of all kinds of Lives. Then Lives themselves become each other's unavoidable circumstances. The simplest thing always slips through while lives try to keep a hold over it. Grounded habits fade, making room for randomness. Old beliefs were the product of their time. Now it's time for doubt, as the only remaining certainty. Lives arch their backs to cope with an erased past, a blurred future and an unacceptable present. Water runs through all kind of veins and minds as real blood and thoughts. There is no choice but to cope with it. The fluid underworld totally alters consciousness, erasing the feeling of existence. This is how Lives get used to the endless unsettlement.
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
