5 stars Unexpected.

From time to time I come into a master piece. It takes long time to happen, normally. The past year was almost empty for me (Blue Lambency Downward didn't made it IMO and Trisector was kind of a deception, to mention a couple) but this year counts two masterpieces for me: The genius Gazpacho's Tick Tock, and now, Part the Second.

Maudlin of the Well is one of my all time favorite bands, so, I'm admitting my review is biased (who's not?). But this release deserves five fat stars, let me justify a little:

First: This album was so unexpected - Nobody could imagine MotW releasing a bunch of rare tracks eight years after the last album.

Two: The style is so different that it would be difficult to say it's the same band with just hearing the music.

Three: Consistent. Though being a collection of unleashed tracks, all of them flow perfectly.

Four: Innovative. This album is an undeniable weird mixture of different styles like Post-Metal, Post-Rock, RIO, Avant, Jazz, Classical, etc...

Five: Surprisingly accessible. Ok this is relative of course, but this album just took about three listens on me to grow and became my current favorite from this year.

Six: It's free!!!
