We Lost the Sea - Departure Songs (Bronze/Bone Merge, /250)
This is THE grail of grails for me. After more than a year of searching around, I finally managed to arrange a good deal (good relatively to the prices these frisbees go today, which are reaaaaally high) for a copy of this masterpiece. I’ll be direct and tell you this is some of the best music of the last decade, because it transcends genres and classifications. It’s just pure heartfelt emotion, condensed in a hour long journey, a swan song to say farewell to a beloved friend and fellow band member, by chanting odes to brave men and women who sacrificed their lives to save other’s.
It’s not an easy album to listen by any means, it requires time to get into fully appreciate it with the variety of all its facets and layers.
But in the end, once you finally get into it, you can perceive and experience the whole journey with newfound consciousness.
A sublime work by a small group of modern gallant gentlemen.
