2 stars Craniopagus parasiticus...

The second in a pair of albums, kindly 'retrieved' from the astral plane by maudlin of the Well.

The Good: Interesting atmosphere and lyrics. A few nice sleigh bells dotted about.

The Bad: As the brother release to Bath it's almost impossible to listen to this album without making direct comparisons. After all, they are inextricably linked, featuring opposingly descriptive artwork. Their similarities lie in their weak vocals, and extended periods of monotony. However, whereas Bath harnesses the juxtaposition of styles to create powerful, emotional songs with great character, Leaving Your Body Map falls flat on its face and just wanders around aimlessly for the best part of an hour. For me the only noteworthy track on the whole album is the finale, Monstrously Low Tide, but by the time I get there it feels like I've just been dragged face-first down a gravel motorway which hardly makes it worth the wait.

The Verdict: The runt of the litter.

Starhammer | 2/5 |
