Maybe you've heard of A Northern Chorus. Maybe you haven't. If you have, maybe you know how all of their songs have a tremendous, wafting build-up until it's all finally unleashed in a sonic wave of bliss. Maybe you loved Spirit Flags with all of your heart, and can't imagine any sort of improvement from this, A Northern Chorus' third album. Maybe you're tired of post-rock imitations and tired re-hashes of Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky, and can't see why you should waste your time with another "imitator".

Maybe you should pick up Bitter Hands Resign. While only fifty minutes and eight songs long, Bitter Hands Resign is A Northern Chorus' most complete album to date. Every song is blindingly brilliant, every song is new and bold. Most importantly, A Northern Chorus has a majestic, ascending style that is all their own - you will not find yourself aching to switch over to "Young Team", nor will you feel like you're listening to some spin-off of it.

Bitter Hands Resign is a gold standard album.

I don't know about you, but I'm usually a little scared when an artist comes out with a truly great album, of whether the next one will measure up to the grandeur of it's predecessor. I'll admit I was a little scared for "Bitter Hand Resign," but now my fears have been calmed.

This album follows the norm for post-rock almbums, but they sure do it well; and very uniquely I might add. They are more vocal than other Post-rock groups. This includes barely audible words to beautiful, epic harmonies. While some slowly build into a sweeping wind of music, and others are more "rocked-out," the tracks all have their own greatness.

If you are a fan of Mogwai or even The Six Parts Seven, you will enjoy this album.

Easily 5 stars.

This band, especially this album, is worth taking the time to discover. With "Bitter Hands Resign" they continually make you think, "I was hoping they would do that." Then they offer the follow on, "Wow, even better than what I was hoping for." Possibly over the top sounding for a review but the truth is this album is deeply addictive. Haunting, sincere, powerful, beautiful... All fitting descriptions for their sound.

Thankfully their lyrics are odd enough to keep you guessing, but not in an obvious and distractingly juvenile way. This is the sort of album you cannot wait to share while secretly judging those that might not get it.

Take a moment to enjoy if from beginning to end. Besides the fact that you will be hooked as soon as "The Shepherd & The Chauffer" starts, it makes for a perfect first listen with the track's seamless transitions.

A group well worth investigating.
They definitely deserved recognition and a public appreciation of their creativity and talent.
I ,for one,say they are sorely missed in this musical wasteland !

This album has an incredible dynamic range. The songs are well-written, nicely recorded, and contain some of the most powerful and beautiful passages of any record of any genre I've heard. I originally heard them on the Mogwai Pandora station. What a find.
