This album is beautiful, frightening, emotional, heavy, and--yep, they're right--heartbreaking.

And if you already have a copy, well, if you're as obsessed with HM as we are, you'll just have to buy it again.

Nothing else quite gets to such a level of sounding so disgusting and so beautiful at the same time.

1:33 A.M.. 13 beers down or so. My wife is asleep in the other room. I will join her soon. This is the soundtrack to the human experience, what that bug feels like as you wash him down the drain. Hopelessness. I hope this stuff brings the authors peace, because it sure helps me once the street lamps come on. Human folly defined.

If you don't understand, you're lucky. Cheers to you, the beautiful people!!!

We love doom sludge dirgelords Harvey Milk. That should be painfully self evident by now. So you can imagine how thrilled we've been with the recent spate of HM action. A brand new record!! A mind blowing DVD documentary and this, a deluxe reissue of perhaps Harvey Milk's finest moment, an all time doom dirge slowcore sludge classic, Courtesy And Good Will Toward Men. Until recently, Courtesy was available on the tUMULt label, in a super swank, hand assembled, die cut, letter pressed sleeve, designed to replicate the original vinyl release. But as the supply of those dwindled, and interest in the Milk began to soar, Relapse leapt into the fray and offered to re-issue it with a bonus disc!

So here we have it. The packaging, while maybe not as cool as the handmade version, is still quite striking, but the real attraction here is the addition of a bonus disc, Live At TT The Bears, a previously cd-r only release, long out of print, that features HM at their Courtesy prime, completely laying waste, proving they could create the same malevolent beauty live, in front of a crowd that sounds like it couldn't number more than 20 people. But oh how we envy those lucky souls. So basically, if you're new to Harvey Milk, but are a fan of any sort of slow, heaviness, that for the love of all that is unholy, pick this up, it is your new favorite record. And if you already have a copy, well, if you're as obsessed with HM as we are, you'll just have to buy it again. The bonus disc is SO worth it. Here's us gushing about Courtesy way back when the tUMULt version first came out:

Crushing and pummeling majestic beauty, interspersed with delicate moments of hushed whispery strum. Lumbering downtuned hyper-rhythmic skull crack dropped delicately into suffocating expanses of near silence.

In this day and age, with bands claiming themselves "emo" (short for emotional), it's hard to think clearly about what it truely means to be emotionally honest. If I had to decide on one record, this one would qualify as the most emotionally charged I could ever think of.

Firstly, I'm very happy that Relapse released this. Now it's not only easier to pick up a legit copy, but all those who debated the 'heaviness' will now have nothing to gawk at--Harvey Milk is undeniably metal, and heavier than a lot of music that is labeled with five dollar words as being "crushingly heavy".

And I'm not discounting Aquarius records at all! This album really is "heartbreakingly heavy"--so much so that this feels like an understatement. The album cover alone conveys so much strain as to make one wonder what is actually going to be heard when you listen. And a huge listen it is! By covering so many tones--poetic minimalist acoustic pieces, sludge laden doom metal (to name just two)--the band may have actually outdone themselvs in some places.

Not that I find fault at ANY point during any of the tracks, but this album is undeniably hard to understand to someone not familar with their sound. Guitars fuzz and drone out for ten minutes at a time, then being broken with silent guitar chords, and then being turned up once again, this time with an added wail of grief.

That is another matter to discuss--the vocals. I love them, through and through, but Creston Spiers vocals are thee definition of what you'd attribute the sound of "heart on your sleeve" mentality. He wails with pain at times; at others, he whispers, barley audible; he even prays ("The Lords Prayer").

I've been listening to this record for over the course of a year, and I can't figure out why all the critics hail this as the ultimate Harvey Milk record.
Let me start by saying that Harvey Milk is one of my favorite bands of today, and I think they're absolutely amazing. But this record is rather silly. It has some cool songs, like "Brown Water" and "Plastic Eggs". I even like the plodding 10+ minute "My Broken Heart Will Never Mend", and the Leonard Cohen cover is cool, too, especially the part where Creston gets to the humming part towards the end. It sounds like he's almost crying, which is absolutely hilarious given his rusty sounding throat.
The rest of the record, however, is pure filler even if some of it is kind of cool. Being a percussionist, I find Creston's little percussion compositions pretty neat. But these tracks, as with most of the record, could have been left off the final cut.
What's really funny is how the band, themselves will attest to all of this. They basically added all the filler just for the sake of making the record a double LP. It also needs to be said that the band pretty much hate this record. That's why they almost never play anything off of it live.
That's not to say that other folks won't enjoy it. It does have an intriguing quality to it. However, people new to the Milk should try the band's other records first.
