I like Earth. Not the early stuff, but from "Hex" on out, I think they are solid.

Earth inspired many bands. Sunn, Boris, etc. etc. Just their early stuff is too low fi and boring for me, and I LIKE drone.

I have AODDOL1 and I though it was pretty good. Dylan Carlson's Telecaster through a twin Reverb is pretty hard to beat. He owns the rights to any future Wild West film soundtrack anyone ever needs made in my opinion. One listen to Hex and you will feel as though you are nailing a buffalo's skull to the plains and tearing it's hide off with your team of horses. Maybe you are the Native tribe that is still trying to eek out a living and avoid the white devil. Maybe you are Daniel Plainview and you have struck oil in the desert. Either way, "Hex" is your soundtrack.

The Bees Made Honey saw Earth using a Rhodes piano as a first, and it was a wonderful addition to the band. The sorrowful sounds created by the piano, coupled with Carlson's piercing riffs added a new dimension to the music. A steady, heavy tempo kept by minimal drumming and the staunch bass lines made it a solid album.

AODDOL2 has cello. Yup, cello. Do I like cello? Sure, I guess. It's kind of like putting too much ketchup on your hotdog. You're still going to eat the hotdog, but you wish there wasn't as much, or maybe any. At times the cello gets annoying, like the song is focusing on lots of cello, and really needs about zero cello. I liked the Rhodes better, I thought it was more tasteful and fitting. Maybe a full blown strings section would be cool, but I like the sparse sounds of Earth a la "Hex."

Earth is one of my favorites discoveries of '12. Feels so calm yet so heavy and emotional. This record ir GREAT when played loud throught a good sound system. So hypnotic and textured. And I think there's a concept behind Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 and 2. The quote on the booklet of Angels1 says something about Alchemy, and on Angels2 says "Sila ersinarsinivdluge" which means "be not afraid of the universe". So alchemy and The Universe? That's pretty cool. Great Album. not Earth's finest, but surely you will not be dissapointed.

I've listened to this album many times now, and find it stumbles out of the blocks every time, with the first track, "Sigil of Brass." This song seems to be Dylan Carlson simply plucking random notes on his guitar, with only an afterthought as to a melody.

The remaining four tracks are good and sound like Earth. I feel they could be stronger if so much improvisation was crafted into "pre-written" songs.

There is also a sense that this album is not really a sequel, but a B-sides compilation of the Angels sessions.

It's still very good, but maybe not as amazing as the first one. Once it starts moving it's a very similar feel.

In the same vein as Hex and The bees made honey. I think I like those a little more than this album but this is still good. I'd rank Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 slightly better than this one. This is still a solid album though.
