5 stars This album is the companion album to Leaving your body map, which makes the two a double album essentially. I listened to the Leaving your body map album first even though this one is the first one, and I noticed that Leaving your body map was considerably heavier and more metallic than Bath. The saxophone and other jazz instruments combined with the long, otherworldy songs combined with the occasional death metal riff and various, diverse vocal techniques make the album sound like it wasn't even written by humans, but by aliens, hence the otherworldy style and feel of the music. Toby Driver and friends offer a large plate of diverse music styles, dynamics, instruments, vocal techniques, and rhythms that will take the listener on an out of body trip through space and time. Not only are Bath and Leaving your body map seminal experimental/avant-garde rock, metal, jazz, and sometimes ambient pieces of music, they are masterpieces of progressive rock music and even music as a whole. MAUDLIN OF THE WELL really need more exposure, because the music they create will offer an astral experience for everyone, and everything.
