5 stars For their third effort, Sanguine Hum give us a double disc concept album that is an amalgamation of all their previous incarnations, and much much more. It contains the wit and whimsy of Antique Seeking Nuns; the ambiance and atmosphere of Nunbient, the succinct song-craft of The Joff Winks Band; and the depth and complexity of Sanguine Hum.

They build from a humorous idea: that buttering the backs of cats could be a source of power! (Because we all know that cats always land on their feet, and buttered toast always lands butter side down.) But lurking beneath the silly exterior is a truly poignant study of the human condition.

The music is so listenable that you might not even notice how incredibly rich, nuanced, and complex it is. I thought their last album was great, but this one is amazing. If you have not heard this band before, you need to. If you have, get this record!

Tull Tales | 5/5 |
