4 stars Truly haunting & horrifying.

This album can scare you to death. Frighting lyrics, cacophonous melodies; a mysterious & challenging piece of art. Once the album begins the feeling hits you. In its entirety, First Utterance is a journey. You get taken places you never imagined possible. While every song offers itself lyrically & musically, the true masterpieces on the album are: "Drip Drip" (which I find myself singing constantly, creepy, because this song is about rape), "The Herald", and "Song to Comus". These songs are true masterpieces in the genre of freak folk, and they are very progressive no doubt! This album is ideal for any fan of intense progressive folk, but First Utterance has its share of beautiful melodies as well. First Utterance puts heavy metal to shame. Even without any electric guitars or pounding drums, this album still manages to scare anyone silly.

4 stars.
