Editorial Reviews

Deep Politics was conceived during the lengthiest gestation period between Grails albums, and reflects a deeper, more educated level of concentration. In their ongoing exploration of occult/fringe culture and the rich history of film music, they have cultivated a unique environment that inspires both an eternal sense of longing and an indelible sense of dread. Through tireless exploration and awe-inspiring execution, Grails have found their true calling as purveyors of a new kind of library music, to be discovered by future generations of crate diggers and curious forward-thinkers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeper than you may remember March 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've been waiting for this release since 2008's fantastic Doomsdayer's Holiday, and man, Grails did not disappoint. I can honestly say that this very well may be their best effort to date.

Grails venture down a slightly more experimental vein on this album than they have with their previous full-length efforts; some of the material meshes perfectly with the Black Tar sessions. This sits just fine with me, as that is some of their best work. Furthermore, if this is Grails experimenting, I hope they will continue to push the envelope. The album is different from their past releases, in the best way possible, and much of this is due in part to the use of new instruments, and the increased use of others. The piano plays a prominent part on this album in tracks like "All the Colors of the Dark," "Deep Politics," and "Deep Snow." They layer some haunting pipes and synthesized beats over "Corridors of Power," with strings soaring and gritty guitars beneath it - always balancing the sound just right.

The album opens with a bang on "Future Primitive." The bass and guitar interlock in a nasty groove, and when the drums really kick in around the 3-minute mark, it's clear that Grails are back with a vengeance. The familiar Middle Eastern influences are here, but of course altered with the theme of the album. This band is truly a chameleon, making the music sound familiar and yet brand new at the same time. A great example is what I found to be the album's highlight: the cryptically-named "Almost Grew My Hair." I saw them play this live a couple years ago and have been wondering when it would be released. Well, here it is. The entire band rocks out from start to finish, for nearly 8 minutes, shredding one of their best licks yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars drift off with headphones firmly attached... March 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
i really couldn't say it any better than the first reviewer, but after putting the headphones on and becoming lost in Grails world once again, i have to say this is the best thing they've done since "Burning Off Impurities" (which is my favorite of theirs). They are trying something new here, which is good since they were in danger of becoming taken for granted (IMO). There is definitely that "feel" of vintage 70's cult film soundtracks working their way into Grails mixing pot, along with even more of a psychedelic "pink floyd-esque" atmosphere to the proceedings. The piano on a couple songs is a nice touch, and i would go so far as to say that this is possibly their "prettiest" record...even though it contains plenty of heavy grooves. Just lay back with the headphones on and let your mind wander and create moving images for this soundtrack (in reverse)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Politics March 25, 2011
By R. Cook
Format:Vinyl
So many times in the recent past, one of my favorite bands puts out a new album and I am strongly disappointed..Grails is one of the few bands who seem to get better and better with every new album that they release. The music they create is so unique not only in the sense that I don't know any other bands making music like them right now (if ever), but each release is different than the last, which can probably be attributed to overall growth as a band. As I did with this album, I am comfortable pre-ordering their material before even hearing it because so far they have not disappointed me. If you like grails and don't have this album, GET IT. If you've never heard grails, GET ALL THEIR ALBUMS. If you don't like grails, I just don't know what's wrong with you..
