SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Founding Moderator
4 stars [Eleventh in a series] (Note: In between "Magician Among the Spirits" and "Hologram of Baal," The Church (minus a vacationing Marty Willson-Piper) released an album under the assumed name "The Refo:mation" (that's not a typo), called "pharmakoi / distance-crunching honchos with echo units." It is a great, if slightly bizarre, album, and deserves a place alongside the band's later oeuvre.) / After the seeming disappointment of "Magician...," many Church fans felt...dis-spirited. It's a good thing we didn't give up on the band, though, because they came back stronger than ever with one of their finest, most creative, interesting, compelling and listenable albums - and their third breakthrough album. With "Hologram of Baal," the band not only returns to form, but (if such a thing is possible) creates textures that better many of those on "Priest=Aura" and "Sometime Anywhere." / "Anaesthesia" starts us off in great form with interesting sound effects, quickly leading into a mildly hypnotic (they were getting extremely good at this...) drum- and acoustic guitar-driven composition with a subtle electric guitar figure, and a fabulous, heavily textured atmosphere. "Ricochet" is one Kilbey's strangest tales, supported by a seemingly simple arrangement of dueling guitar figures, a straight-ahead beat, and some of Kilbey's best bass work. "Louisiana" is one of Kilbey's best ballads, with one of the most beautiful arrangements the band has ever written. An absolute gem. With a heavy nod to one of their influences, "The Great Machine" is a Floydian composition with a subtly sound-filled arrangement full of hypnotic guitars, keyboards, percussion, sound effects, studio tricks, and a talk-sung Kilbey song-poem. "No Certainty Attached" - one of the band's best "new" rockers, with a driving beat, rocking guitars, a heavy bass line, and a heavily reverbed atmosphere - segues beautifully into "Tranquility," another absolutely gorgeous Kilbey ballad song-poem, supported by an increasingly-present, super-textured atmosphere. "Buffalo" is a nice light-rocking ballad, driven by acoustic guitar, soaring ultra-textured electric guitar, and an atmosphere that might be even more extreme than "Tranquility." "This is it" is one of the band's weirdest arrangements, propelled by a strange drum figure, double guitars, a subtle keyboard, and a "space-y" atmosphere. "Another Earth" is a light rocker with verses driven by textured guitar and a nice rock beat, leading into sound-filled choruses with a heavier beat, more-present guitars, and maximal texture. Bringing to mind "Lullaby" (from "Priest=Aura"), "Glow-Worm" closes the album in perfect Church style with a beautiful, ultra-textured ballad including mega-heavy string synth, super-echo electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and dueling vocals. / "Hologram of Baal" is an incredibly creative album, and definitely among the band's best. It also strongly presages much of the "sound" and creativity that would dominate their next two albums, "After Everything Now This" and "Forget Yourself."

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars The quality of "The Church" records has been rather consistent so far: mostly good albums with some upper moments (like their debut) and downs ("Heyday", "Good Afternoon Fix").

I haven't yet found their relation with prog so far to tell the truth. But I have no problem with their new wave oriented music. Only that the new wave was quite sounding as old wave in the middle eighties or nineties.

This album is no different. A feeling of déjà vu. "Louisiana" is one example to highlight this. A borrowed romantic ballad (I can't find the name right now from the original which reminds me that song).

There are little passionate songs held on this album; it sounds pretty much the same from start to finish (but no song is weak either). At the end of the day, it is a fine rock album to listen to. Maybe too much formatted probably. The well named "Tranquility" is another fine ballad; but this album holds too many mellowish affairs to tell the truth ("Buffalo" or "This Is It" are some other ones).

The pop "Another Earth" has some more upbeat rhythm (but it wasn't difficult) and the catchy melody makes it one of the best song available together with the opener "Anaesthesia". The longer closing "Glow Worm" is also a very good song, but so much borrowed to "Doctors Of Madness".

"Hologram of Baal" is a good album; in line with most of their releases (except three or four lesser ones so far). No major changes (if any). Business as usual. But since it reminds good, there is no harm, right?

4 stars I don't have a great deal to add to what's already been said so well, but I'd like to mention a few things I suppose.

5 stars This CD was just released as I was about to see them live in Cleveland. I hurried to get familiar with the songs, as I assumed they would showcase this CD live. Well, I was happy to find that they played highlights from most of their earlier albums and only did "Buffalo" and "Louisiana" from th ... (read more)

4 stars With Tim Powles now in charge of production and with Peter Koppes back we could figure out that some changes were about to happen. And those who supposed that were right. With a first listen this is quite obvious. The production, sound and atmosphere is now more complex, intricated and deeper ... (read more)
