2 stars Graviyaunosch is a bit of a return to the deliberately messy Stonehenge, but with the more polished production of Burning Stone, although much more minimal in terms of effects but better sound quality overall. The title track is the highlight of the whole album, a fast audio assault, before a reel of five shorter tracks which are quite stop-start and aggressive. Not much stands out particularly but I did seem to enjoy the final part of the section Knaftt more than anything else. There's a bit of a change after this, with the last three tracks all recorded live, and two of them re- imaginings of previously released tracks. Acid Blue is a 100mph jam, with an odd-timed riff breaking it up in the middle. The Big Head remake is notable for the extreme distortion of its vocals, and lengthening of the mid-section into a marimba-based melody which breaks it up very nicely. The B.U.G. remake is also a major improvement with some of the added effects.

In all, probably prefer Burning Stone, however this is a reasonable follow up, just not enough new tracks to add to a highlight reel.
