5 stars Download the album of the year (in my opinion) which was entirely fan funded and therefore entirely free. Written by the musical genius (and artist I should add) Toby Driver as well as well as the majority of the original line up [plus the magnificent Mia Matsumiya (Kayo Dot, Gregor Samsa, Tartar Lamb) on violin] , maudlin of the Well presents their first album in eight years, titled Part the Second. Following the masterpieces Bath and Leaving your Bodymap, Part the Second creates a much more subtle atmosphere that feels almost a transcendence between motW and it's post-incarnation Kayo Dot. What was formerly aggressive and melancholic was presented in a manner that is undoubtedly happy (though there are moments of melancholy and even emotions that touch upon anger), but the music is so incredibly well played and the song writing so well established that there needn't be any remorse for what once was and is no more. This album has become the sound track of my life for the past few weeks and I'm glad that motW was generous enough to share it with the entire world!
