I really enjoyed this record! I'll agree mostly with what's been said about it being background music -- but by the time I did start "actively" listening to it, I really had come to appreciate just how overtly cool it was, and the songs I liked best do seem to be the ones that manifest that sort of easy laziness best. "Worst Trip" and "Weekend" both stick out in my mind for those reasons: the former has something totally driving about it, most likely an incredible bassline, the sort that gets heads bobbing and hips gyrating even if it is only in your car seat; and the latter, while the mellower of the two, has such a sweet demeanor that makes its kind of anticlimactic rise-and-fall totally supple and appropriate. It's not brimming over itself in eagerness to impress -- it's nostalgia set to tape, and it is SO GOOD.

"Alaska" made this record for me, but that seems to be the consensus anyways? "The Girl" and "The Way the Lazy Do" sound like they might have been all right ideas that are overladen with, uhm, noise. They lose their focus when the harmonies start getting lost in whatever that is - my guess is noisemakers. "Ain't it Strange" is sort of sappy in a really garish way, I feel like it's just, at best, filler between to really great songs. Almost pointless enough to merit the effort of reaching for the skip button.

"Die Die Die" is great in an entirely different vein, as is the album's closer. Overall the album makes me think of all that '60s jargon you guys have been bringing up, but a whole lot of the album reminds me of what I like about Pavement, but a whole lot cooler and a whole lot simpler. I'm thinking "Range Life" type-Pavement here.

Also, sorry about the delay, I thought I was going to write a review about this for my school newspaper and was waiting to post it, but that was a miscommunication between me and the entertainment editor. So!

edit: This second upload isn't working for me at all, will update when I get back home.

I just finished my first listen to Shipping News, and I'm not very impressed. Overall I just found it very boring, the music was very droning and the vocals were sort of muffled, so I couldn't make out any lyrics (I'm listening on speakers, perhaps I would hear them better if I put on my headphones). Maybe I should just put it on as background music like everyone says, but so far I'm not too taken with this album  :-(

This was by no means a bad record, but I wouldn't call it good either. I don't really see how you are going to call this minimalist either. Or, well, even post rock.

I'm gonna listen to this again now, updates when I finish.

I find it's less minimalist in the sense of instrumentation, etc., and more minimalist in the sense that the songwriting is very, well, minimal. It's full of droning and repetition.

I dig a lot of drone-based stuff so I guess that's why I like it. The muffling of the vocals seems like a deliberate sort of production choice, in keeping with the rest of the steady, monochromatic feel.

Okay I just listened through this again. In some places I really started to enjoy it, but for the most part, I found it bland at best, obnoxious at worst. For example, "Axons and Dendrittes" starts off amazing, and listening to it I was sure I was going to enjoy the album, but the vocals just comepletely blew it for me. It took the kind of elegance of the song and made it sound really juvenile and immature.

(Morays or) Demon was also pretty bad. The Vocals are I think my biggest problem with this record, actually. The chorus sounds like he is trying to do a bad Modest Mouse impression with out any of Brock's distinctive style or lyrical flair. The song itself builds well, but it doesn't go anywhere except the chorus, which, as I said, I found less than impressive.

Overall, the album sounds like they took a couple of really good QOTSA songs, stretched them out, took josh homme, shot him, and replaced him with a dude who couldn't sing nearly as well. I might give it another listen, to pinpoint songs I did like, but this wasn't my thing.

For the record, I typically really really like minimalist, droning stuff, which is why I was so disappointed in this record.

I really dont think the lyrics matter that much. They're not printed in the booklet and like Johnny C said, the muffling of the vocals was probably a deliberate production choice. I see the vocals on this album as just another instrument. Plus, I really like Axons and Dendrites, even with the vocals.


Come to think of it, I should have uploaded one of their earlier albums.

When a call an album like this "minimalist" I'm really using that as a fancy word for "stark and cold", I think.  I dig the vocals.

I can listen to Windy & Carl's 3-CD boxset all the way through for days at a time, though, so I'm probably more comfortable than some of you with things that are simple and/or repetitive.

I just think that if the lyrics weren't very important, they would've muffled the vocals even more. They seem to be just audible enough to make out some words, but not enough to get the whole picture, which makes it seem like the band actually cared about the vocals. I say either go full on My Bloody Valentine, or put them up in front of the music, but that's just my ugly opinion.
A good way to describe the droning in this album is to say that if I'm listening to a song, and just click on any other random time in the song, it'll sound basically the same to me as the part I was just listening to.

I have to say I'm digging this, but that's probably because I've been using it as background music for a bit. I understand the drone, because I like that kind of music from time to time. The vocals? Yeah, I get what you mean by the vocals not being there, but I'm also thinking about them as another instrument, since they're so blurred on some tracks. Although, on some tracks the vocals kind've get in the way of the actual music a bit too much, while on other they mesh nicely (Example: Untitled w/Drums).
So, one question, when are the updates again? Every what?

I'm partial to 'It's Not Reality' and 'The Thought Police', myself. It might be because those are the more straightforward metal songs.

Either way this is totally rad, Khar. I'll try and do a more detailed write up later, but I am way tired.

Pkay, I just have to ask, since I downloaded it((Hope that that is okay)) and I just want to know what type of music this album is since I have been trying to find some good new bands and other stuff to listen to.  And by the way, this group totally rocks, and Its Not Reality is awesome.

The tags say "Dance Metal." In theory this is my new favourite genre.

I have to add that a couple of things grate on me. The album is kind of unrelenting right up until the very last track. Even the quieter parts throughout the tracks are mostly very aggressive and hyper, which makes for kind of a wearying listen.

The second problem I have is basically with the last two tracks. "How To Conquer The World" I have a tough time with; live and fake-live tracks (I am going out on a limb and assuming this one is the latter) in the middle of studio albums, even studio concept albums, almost never appeal to me. I find they kind of drag me too forcefully out of the context of the album. "The Needle And The Damage Done" off of Neil Young's Harvest does the same thing to me as "How To Conquer The World." A glance at the Wikipedia reveals this record to be a concept album, and I can appreciate that this may be a part of the concept, but it's an irritating little production quirk that I can't profess to enjoy. "Conspiritus," musically, is just placed really awkwardly. You have this overly-aggressive record that just doesn't quit pounding music into your ear... and it ends with that track?

For those faults, the record is still a really good listen. It's crammed full of dark, heavy hooks and compelling songs. It's unfortunate that the last two songs seem like such poor choices.

Man the last two songs should be Theoreality the Conspiritus.

I guess I should have done the tags better, but the albums always worked fine for me.

This video by Jim Fogarty (Ewigkeits sole studio member) explains the albums concept very basically. Be warned, he is a very paranoid and cynical man, also an anarchist! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZH78vRAmBQw

Ewigkeit really is unlike anything on my computer so it is hard to make comparisons. The faster tempos, smart lyrics, and tranced bass make the music quite enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the Thought Police.

It was a great deal catchier than I'm used to when dealing with metal. Like, I remember humming the chorus to Thought Police several hours after listening to the album. I like the tasteful use of keyboards as well, which is almost never done correctly in metal. As I mentioned earlier, The Thought Police and It's Not Reality were my favorite tracks, probably because they were easy to enjoy on the surface level from the up-tempo riffs, but had some more depth to them that holds up after multiple listenings. I wasn't a big fan of Square Sunrise or Transcend the Senses, but they weren't bad songs, and I liked pretty much every minute of the rest. The best thing about this is that I probably never would have heard of this unless it had been uploaded here.

As far as Sir Lord Baltimore goes... hm.  In the context of the time period, okay, it's not half bad and fairly innovative.  Honestly I just don't really like it, though.  I mean, the year before, MC5 had released Kick Out the Jams, so I think even if I were living in that time period, I wouldn't take bands like MC5 off the record player to put something like this on.  Not that it's truly bad at all, just that I don't find it truly interesting and most of the songs are too unfocused to keep my attention.  Most of them - especially tracks 1 and 3... are way too long and meandering.

Still, I can appreciate this as being an overlooked classic that metal fans should listen to.

They were basically the American response to the British proto-metal movement. Blue Cheer was certainly better as far as early American heavy metal goes, but I was trying to find something nobody already knew about.

At first I did not like Sir Lord Baltimore, then I listened to it again when I was in a goofier mood, and had a fabulous time listening. It is music I cannot take seriously, but can seriously enjoy.

My little brother really liked this album.

Basically like everyone said, it was fun, not amazing. I don't really know what makes this "metal" as I am not really a fan of that genre usually, but I liked this nonetheless. The vocals sounded like Captain Beefheart with less gravel to me, and the music itself was pretty great. I was happy that the songs went on for 4 or 5 minutes as a standard, because that whole "lets play a ton of short songs" thing has never really been that great in my eyes, so this is definitely an okay thing.

I like Master Heartache a lot, and I Got a Woman is pretty awesome. I don't know why they put Lake Isle Of Innersfree on there though. That song makes me want to hate the whole band.

I would like someone to explain why this is "Metal" to me though. I am not seeing what seperates it from just "music that has guitars and drums."

Well, it's basically the heavier blues-rock that became the basis of what would grow into heavy metal in the near future. Bands like this one, Led Zeppelin, Blue Cheer, and so on are what early metal artists derived their sound from. Of course, Black Sabbath released their debut a year earlier than this album, but I was speaking more in a general sense because a lot of that subgenre developed pretty rapidly. That's why I used the term 'proto-metal', although now that I think about it that word probably made me sound like a pretentious douche.

Well, there's also something really basic, gritty and primal about the album that makes the "proto-" a bit more apt.

I'd definitely use the term proto-metal to describe this album.

Like everybody said, it's pretty good. Almost stoner metal at some points from what I remmember. It's a shame not a lot of people (including myself) know this band, it should be mentioned with Blue Cheer and Led Zeppelin.
I should send this album to my metalhead friends, they'd probably appreciate it.

Let's get this thing moving, people!  I'm really psyched about the album I'm going to do and we're moving really slow here.    :|

Sorry I realise I've gone a bit AWOL on this thread. I'll listen to the next record. I've just been massively ill and had schoolwork to catch up on I skipped a few records. I have one to put up for you guys to listen to when it gets to my turn though.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.
