This album is very special. I think the band pulls off a lot of things in it that don't work well unless they are treated in just the right way. I have the CD and the Vinyl record. I'll say the record plays very smoothly and has a great quality. The cover art looks really awsome as well, and the record sleeves seem sturdy. I'd recommend this record to lovers of rock and roll, instrumentation, and genre mixing.
I am an avid fan of instrumental/post rock), and although Crippled Black Phoenix incorporate lyrics, they are not overwhelming or distracting. The lyrics don't take away from the music - the music is very experimental, incorporating strings, keys, horns, etc. You can't directly compare them to anyone, but I would put them on the same playlist as artists like: A SIlver Mount Zion, The Appleseed Cast, EF, Junius, Cave In, or Midlake.
The only thing I don't understand is why the 1970's theme to Kelly's Heroes "Burning Bridges" is on the digital album I downloaded. It definitely threw me for a curve, but the album is still fantastic. I highly recommend this album, and will be delving into more Cripple Black Phoenix pronto.
A somewhat strange album but I like it a lot!
