Prog Reviewer
4 stars Tortoise's Millions Now Living Will Never Die presents a bass-heavy, tranquil and intriguing post-rock sound which would come to have a profound influence on the nascent sub-genre, radically expanding the territory of post-rock from that staked out by Talk Talk in years past. The opening epic Djed combines jazz, dance music, krautrock and electronic influences into an intriguing mixture which forms the bedrock of a fascinating 21 minute epic which proved that post-rock could achieve great things in such a format, whilst the following material provides a similar musical trip in more bite-sized chunks. Produced and mixed impeccably, with some inspired choices in the mix in particular (such as bring the bass sound to the fore), based on the other Tortoise albums I've heard I'd say they've never bested it.
Warthur | 4/5 |
