This release is years beyond that one (Natural Disaster). It sounds incredible! Excellently Produced (finally). The brothers producing and Steven Wilson mixing was definitely what this band needed after some not so well produced efforts of past releases. The excellent Vocals on this make it soothing. The female interaction is well done and not overdone. Just listening to tracks like 'Angels Walk Among Us' and 'Dreaming Light' are made whole by the vocal. Very well done. Vincent has come a long long way. Hard to believe this is the same 'Doom' metal band with the harsh vocals years ago. Night and day.
Also, the CD title is brilliant. Fitting. Makes total sense. We are here Because we are Here. No rhyme or reason. It is what we make of the experience. How we live this life and experience it.
It has a good flow to it, it does not bore the listener and is really easy to 'hear' but not to describe. Its best listened to in its entirety. It does have that feel. Its music is so haunting but has almost glimpses of sunlight throughout. Its uneasy but that is what makes you come back for more. It gets better and better the more you hear it. One of the best cd's I have ever experienced, not just heard. And I have been listening to all types of music for 35 years. It is so good you begin to get lost in it when you listen after a while. Its a brilliant, complete work.Read more ›
P.S. Too bad that in this time of rampant illegal music downloading, this band (and album) is still a victim of the old-school "high-priced import" mentality. Charging nearly $20 for a CD is not the best way to introduce this great album to the American public, who are already in desperate need of discovering truly 'great' new music for a change!!
All of the band shine here, musically and vocally. Steven Wilson provides a mix worthy of the material, adding more depth and dimension than anyone else could have. Truly the best of 2010!
