5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! May 25, 2010
By Nelo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been following A Silver Mt Zion since the beginning, and I can't get enough. I'm always excited to see what they've come up with next.

So after buying this album and listening to it several times, I went back and listened to each of their other albums from start to finish, one after another. Each album is quite different and should be enjoyed in it's own right, without comparing them to each other. My own impressions of their music cannot be put down in words. This kind of music must be experienced, not described. Brilliant and awe-inspiring is about the closest I can come in terms of descriptions. Expressions of Truth, Beauty, sadness, brutal honesty, reflection and Hope are encoded throughout.

"But there there ain't no Truth but the No-Truth but the No-Truth, yeah!"
"Ain't no Thing but the Nothing but the Nothing, yeah!"
"Ain't no Fall but the long Fall is a long Fall, yeah!
"And there ain't no Light but the True Light is a Dim Light, yeah!"
-- There is a Light

I may like this album a little better than their other more recent offerings. For me, this album marks a return to the core of what A Silver Mt Zion is. They have refined their approach, using what works best, and in the process they have created a really unique sound. Fresh, raw and organic. Honest, and brilliant. Just how I like it!

If you are fan, then please support this artist and buy their album! This kind of ingenuity and artistry needs to be encouraged. I only wish there were more artists like A Silver Mt Zion.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've held out with this review for long enough. November 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this album as soon as it was released because of my affinity for experimental music. A great divide is notorious within the band's fans of what their best and worst material is, usually determined by Efrim Menuck's vocal style. I include myself in the category of being deterred by Menuck's voice, a fact which determined my initial reaction to this album. When I stuck this disc on for a play-through I hoped and hoped that Menuck would have kept his vocals much more reserved. As I slightly expected he did not, and I was aggravated. However, after nearly three years of digestion, I can finally determine the album's true worth.

For the longest time I had held 'Born Into Trouble As the Sparks Fly Upward' as the band's crowning achievement. I felt that Menuck used his vocals in wonderful harmony with the music, orchestration, and sparse audio samples. Following that album, his voice became much more controversial among fans which continued through to this album. As I listen to 'Kollaps Tradixionales' now, though, I find myself more and more impressed with the daring instrumentation and overall presentation of the music. The mood is perfectly accented by meaningful words and necessary song structures. The musicianship is as raw as I like it and as powerful as I could have asked. The style is vastly different from previous albums which any listener will notice upon only the first few minutes of listening. However, this works. It really works.

So, again, after three years I have finally come to realize an important fact about this album: it is absolutely one of the band's most essentials, and I will gladly hold it up to the same height as 'Born Into Trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars They've still got it. April 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Efrim Menuck is still able to create beautiful art, more than a decade out of Godspeed. This album provides clear proof of that. Not easy-listening, but for someone who loves post-rock, a clear choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars The end of an era... May 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
With the news that GY!BE were reifying, this album finally made sense to me. There is a certain GY!BE quality to the record that one must acknowledge before appreciating this slightly different direction. The tracks recreate the juxtaposition of despair and hope, as seen in the disparity between the driving first track, the middle track, which sounds a good bit like a tradition hymn, and the last tracks which are complicated, almost minimalist at times, undertakings.

A Silver Mt. Zion, as with most of Efrim, Sophie and Thierry's efforts, are what they are. They are unapologetic efforts to communicate a focused message, generally about a hopeless campaign to end world jingoism. Apparently, the members are starting to feel that their impact might be better felt again through the steamtrain known as GY!BE, whose message, while less direct, can almost be more efficacious due to its sheer genius. I, for one, am glad to have experienced A Silver Mt. Zion as a similar project packaged differently. Enjoy this album, knowing that other incarnations of genius will follow...
