4 stars It is difficult to speak of a band not afraid to be jarring.

Kayo Dot was formed from the ashes of the then defunct Maudlin of the Well (whose comeback album in 2009, "Part the Second", which I will hear soon), and "Choirs of the Eye" in 2003, is her debut. All I can say is: Dude, that album crazy! It is a chaos of guitars, drums, bass, keyboards, vocals and even rare stringed instruments and wind!

The guitar is of course the main element, building strong and amazing riffs that lead the listener to fear and fright. Once when the music goes silent until now between the guitar and abound with violence.

But "Choirs of the Eye" also knows how to be playful, and these guys give us moments of peace when they want. But these moments are rare and in general the album is quite heavy and strong, although not as avant-garde environment, or as I thought (but I do not quite know what is avant-garde to say something!)

My only complaints about this album are the vocals are weak and unnecessary and "quiet time" is too long. Aside from that this is a great album that deserves 4 stars.
