2 stars First off, I have an open mind and listen to many genres of music, but I still cant see why Agalloch is appealing. I suppose its becuase I'm a compser, and I recognize that this is the kind of stuff I'd come up with if i was noodling around on my guitar while warmig up. I can't see why they are listed as progressive as well. Perhaps if agalloch were the only band with a somber metal style, they could be heralded (Riverside, Peccatum,mid-early Rotting Christ come to mind). This repetitive and uninspiring music tries to come to life at point and ceaselessly fails. I onyl give it 2 stars becuase I can see it being appropriate for psychedelics. On its own though, the songwiriting reminds unfortunately of of bad trance music, and occasionally the strokes.
