I own both original and remaster of Gallows Gallery, and IMO the remaster is the BETTER buy. The sound quality is better, there's a few re-mixes that are cool to hear, and the jazzy out-takes are cool, too. (so what if they're short) I know a lot of ppl are all about how raw a recording should be, well, if "raw" means that it sounds like a garage band-quality demo, (think Darkthrone- Goatlord) then I'll pass. I could understand if it was the first release of Scorn Defeat (DSP), that's rare, (different from raw) but the original release of Gallows was just not well done. There seems to be a pattern here- raw, rare, well done .. hmm. I guess I like rare and well done, but not raw! And if that makes me a false black metal fan or a poseur .. oh no! How will I ever sleep again???

Poseur is a pejorative term, often used in the punk, heavy metal, hip hop and goth subcultures to describe a person who adopts the dress, speech, and/or mannerisms of a group or subculture, generally for attaining acceptability within the group or for popularity among various other groups, yet who is deemed to not share or understand the values or philosophy of the subculture.

Format: Audio CD
I didn't know much about Sigh until I saw them profiled in the recent Global Metal documentary, but I was impressed enough by what I saw of the Japanese black metal band to check out one of their studio albums. As luck would have it, the first one I ran across was their 2005 album Gallows Gallery.

Whatever I was expecting, Gallows Gallery isn't it. In fact, this album hardly sounds like the work of a black metal band at all. I'm not opposed to black metal experimentation (I love Borknagar, for example), but Sigh is way off into avant-garde territory here. With its unconventional song structures and liberal use of Hammond organ, sitar and Mellotron, Gallows Gallery is essentially a black metal In the Court of the Crimson King. It's an eclectic, if not completely bizarre, album that brings to mind 70's progressive rock more than extreme metal. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's one of those albums that is really hard to get into, but pays off a little more each time you listen to it. Of course, you don't always want to have to work to enjoy an album, and that's where this album can turn people off.

Apparently Gallows Gallery is an aberration, and not really a good representation of Sigh's true sound, so I'm going to give one of their other albums a try. I'm impressed with the band's creativity here, but I'd still like to hear what they sound like when they play black metal instead of prog rock.

Format: Audio CD
This album is true prog rock and a fantastic album in general.It is destined to be a classic.I fear that about 90% of people that hear it will not understand it, because it is so ahead of its time. At the same time it encorporates classic 70's prog influences, sax, hammond, mellotron, sitar, etc. It will be criminally overlooked for years and then will resurface as one of the best albums of the last 10 years. It is one of those albums that goes over everyones head, but is an absolute must have for any music fan, especially prog heads like myself! If you are reluctant to buy this because of the type of music or image they had in the past, I assure you this is a fresh sound for Sigh.The biggest change is that there are clean vocals on every song, and little or no black metal vocals! Great vocals, very original. In my opinion it is their best album, and will be hard to top, but I hope they continue with this new musical approach. This is a five star album!

Format: Audio CD
I was familiar with Sigh from reading "Lords of Chaos". The picture of them taken over a decade ago showed them as young, Asian guys adopting the visual aspects of Norway's black metal groups of the time (Mayhem, Emperor, etc.). I'd heard early tracks that were carbon copies of the aforementioned groups. This album shows a side of them that could only come with years of mastering their art.

They exhibit elements of classic black metal, but they've morphed the sounds of psychedlic, classic rock soloing, and Rush and Dream Theater progressiveness that combines into a sound all their own.

Just listen to the opening track, "Pale Moment". If something in that song doesn't grab you I'd suggest holding a mirror up to your nose to see if you're still alive.
