This is simply put an amazing album. I own every GYBE and ASMZ album, and I'm having a tough time deciding which is the best. This album is up near the top of the list though. I currently would put this album second only to Born Into Trouble... Other reviewers have commented that the "Tra-La-La Choir" parts are annoying, and I totally disagree. The entire first track, including the powerful choir part, is the best piece of GYBE/ASMZ music I've heard. I know this is a matter of taste, but do not let that prevent you from buying this record. Not only does it sound great, IMHO, but it makes the type of political point only found on these type of records. The only annoying part is the train part of the last song, but even that has a point (as anyone who knows GYBE is fully aware of). So, I fully recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of this genre. If you don't own any ASMZ albums, you may want to start with Born Into Trouble As The Sparks Fly Upward, as it is a tad mroe accessible, but this really is a close second. If you are branching out from GYBE, look no further than ASMZ.

Trying to lay a hand on describing the music created by Canadians Godspeed You! Black Emperor and A Silver Mt. Zion is like trying to summarize a cubist painting. It is simultaneously beautiful and haunting; mesmerizing and disturbing; gleeful and despondent. At times it is chaotic and tumultuous, at others a single melody drifts through the speakers. If no other descriptor fits the entirety of their discography, it is brilliant.

The history, philosophy, and politics of this nebulous group of Canadians are well-known, so one can focus on this album as a singularity of their work. The opening track, perhaps my favorite on the album opens hushed, with what sounds like a dance instructor repeating eight-counts. Guitars then drift ever so slowly in, rounding around a few central themes. In typical post-rock fashion, new elements are introduced in a rounding fashion, including voices and the "complete amateur choir" ASMZ assembled for this record. The vocals done in the first third of this track are, for me, one of the highlights of the entire album. Something about the tone and rhythm of that section really strikes a chord with me. The rest of the album bends and swirls in much the same way, with elements added and deleted almost seamlessly as the record wends its way though to its conclusion.

The common complaint, it seems, is the tonal quality of leader Efrim Menuck's (Gasp! A last name!) voice. Unfortunately, we have to look back at the record itself to understand where his voice fits in to the mix. This is most assuredly a concept album, and one with a political agenda. Unfortunately, I can't find a review anywhere that has really parsed out the meaning behind the title of this record.

What was I thinking? After about three listens, I realized more than ever that this man (Efrim) was the guts behind GYBE! So consistently moving. The dynamics played so well. Such heart and beauty. And those strings... And these melodies-! Album after album. I don't even know which one he was when I saw Godspeed on a D.C. stage. But this is yet another ASMZ disc I joyfully bought new even though I'd been given someone's backup copy already. And I'm not a rich man. And I don't fetishize the art, in fact I get a little annoyed with the way you have to smudge the CD as you pinch and pull it out of those tight Constellation slipcases. So what's that say... I want to bless them cuz they deserve it.

The first track, "Sow Some Lonesome Corner So Many Flowers Bloom," introduces the major theme of the album: a return to the basics of intense orchestral composition with the introduction of vocal arrangements. As a fan of both Godspeed and Silver Mt. Zion, I'm electrified by this new release.

I've always been a fan of ASMZMO.... their other releases have a certain depressing yet uplifting feel to them. so when I purchased this album I was expecting just that. And I got a little bit more, I found this album to be more listenable than their previous releases. So of course this turned me on. The Choir idea that has been presented on this album is very innovative, and interesting... they pulled it off very well. not to mention the solid grooves that are created are very endearing and beautiful. enjoy this album as you would a nice hotdog.

The fact that other reviewers have said that the voices on this recording are irritating is insane and insulting. Just listen and you can hear the heart that goes into the vocals. The vocals fit in with the whole idea of Gybe and Asmz perfectly. To hear some graceful, soul-filled voice would be almost unnatural. The repetition aspect is borrowed from Gybe, so it isn't anything suprising to hear, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

I don't understand the significance of the beginning vocal lines of this album and the count to eight. Perhaps, besides the continuing kids motive, there is none. The beginning track, So Some Lonesome Corner, although I consider it great, is perhaps my least favorite of these four compositions(now after listening to this album pretty much nonstop at least 25 times in the last week). I have completely failed to recognize the greatness of this music a decade ago. The beginning minutes introduce us to the Tra La La Band With Choir in a way some of us may find annoying. To me these are the weakest minutes of this album, only because the album is so awesome in its entirety. I seem to recall pressing the forward button during the 6th minute of this beginning track a decade ago. The 7th minute transforms this song building the mood reminiscent of Michael Stearn's Planetary Unfolding (an amazing atmospheric ambient composition). The remaining 8 minutes keeps us in the background of this atmospheric realm with the elements building it into a rock song. If, like me, you love this 9th and 10th minute and wish for more, download a beautiful composition by Steve Roach called Desert Prayer. You will be able to soak in a similar mood for over 12 minutes. And the greatness of this album by Thee Silver Mt Zion and the reason that to me personally this is one of the most intriguing albums i know is that so many fragments of songs of these complex compositions are reminiscent of some of the best pieces of music of the masters of ambient, atmospheric, modern classical, and experimental music. And the way they are all attached to one another is truly brilliant. Other bands have used violin and cello players on their albums, but there are moments on this one, where I don't hear classical instrument players but composers.Read more ›
