The Truth
5 stars This is where it all comes together.

6LA8, whom I just learned of this summer dished out this album not too long ago but I've had many listens since it's release and honestly, it's one of the best albums this year. In the Land of Dreams is exactly what the band implies, a hazy and droney effort that gives the illusion of a dream state. Those trips 6LA8 had taken me on in previous albums aren't even as great as where this album takes me.

What really does it for this album is the sound clips that go along with the music, spoken word to me has this brilliant effect on music to where it's kind of blending two important aspects of culture, music and literature. It's something about that combination that really appeals to me and those are put to good use here.

Another important piece of this album is the fact that the band is master of the art of drone. These guys know how it's done and they put it together with so many other genres, the taste on this album is similar to other albums, undefinable.

And yet, something in this albums takes me on a bigger trip than the rest. Maybe it's the dream concept lurking in the background, I don't know.

All I know is, I love this album. A possible contender for album of the year. 5 golden stars.

The Truth | 5/5 |
