Editorial Reviews

At A Loss has shown a huge fondness for bands from Savannah, Georgia over the years. "a grey sigh in a flower husk" is an excellent example of the wide range of unconventional heavy sound coming from savannah. Previous efforts by Baroness had an almost "tragedy meets electric wizard meets the f*cking champs" sound. Unpersons earlier releases were a combination of influences as wide ranging as the jesus lizard, rorschach and rudimentary peni. "A grey sigh in a flower husk" is a glimpse of amazing things yet to come by both bands.

This split was originally supposed to be released about a year earlier, much to everyone's dissatisfaction we had to wait. However, it was worth it. The Baroness tracks are both solid, however the Unpersons steal this one. While Baroness brags insane-awesome guitar wailing, their songs aren't really that much different structurally or rhythmically from their earlier EP's (First and Second). While its all tighter, it has the feel that they've been writing the same song all along, just making it better every time. If you get the chance see them live, they seem to pulsate with their music. The Unpersons tracks are heavy, but their songs are much more sporadic and have gotten more erotic and sophisticated since their previous release (III). These tracks may turn off your traditional metal fan, but after several listens and you will digest the tracks for what they are... Unadulterated awesomeness! My favorite track is probably "Dry Hand." If like them check out the Dazzling Killmen, I think of the unpersons like a much more lysergicly enraged descendant of them. And if you've got the right Savannah connections look into I Saw My Body... Dead, featuring the drummer of the Unpersons (currently working with Kylesa) and a few other fine freaks. All in all this split is a great listen (and no surprise the artwork rules).

After struggling to get the acutal CD of First and Second (see my review), it was only fitting to get my grubby paws on this much easier (and less expensive!) album to fill the final gap in my Baroness collection. And I was not disappointed. Though Baroness' half on Grey Husk is only two songs, the length of them is equal to the three on either one of the first two EPs. And, in my opinion, is the better half.
This is an obvious link in the evolution between Second and The Red Album. We have the more agressive vocals of the previous platters but with some of the more subtle arrangements of the last two full-length works. Also, much cleaner production, so the guitars in particular vividly come through in all their crunchy, distorted glory, as never before. "Teresias" is, in some ways, the heaviest thing they ever did. But "Cavite'" is, for me, the favored track-- a true heavy rock epic with more substance crammed into 10-plus minutes than anything out of the 70s prog-rock era. I can never get bored of listening to this.
The Unpersons half was not as impressive to me. I like the music, but I can't get used to the slurred, "goo-goo, gah-gah" vocals, the likes of which are the bane of the Meat Puppet's first two albums, In a Car and Meat Puppets. It makes it hard for me to take the excellent music seriously, so I don't plan on re-visiting that part of Grey Sigh very often-- but who knows? I have an open mind.
But Baroness' part makes the price of the CD very worth while. If you are a fan of their music and haven't bought this yet, I strongly recommend you do.
