Hey who here has The Great Destroyer? I think it is a pretty sweet album, and probably in my top 10 of the year
I'll be honest, I don't know very much about them. I am just listening to their latest, the Great Destroyer right now. I am enjoying it. It is relaxing rock, that reminds me off Alice in Chains type grunge when it comes to song structure, but is obviously not as tired or overused as the grunge genre. It has smoother guitar tone, and sounds to be a borderline shoegaze/rock hybrid. The guitar gently waltzes on the breeze, whilst the vocals convey a bored intensity.
Very smooth, very enjoyable. I would almost recommend this as an album to check out before delving into more sound oriented genres of shoegazer, as the vocals are still very clear and less another instrument. "Silver Rider" is currently my favourite tune on the CD, has some great lyrics, as the texans explore an oddly content world of acceptance and longing.
I have been meaning to get some stuff from this band for awhile. I was curious about them and awhile back I downloaded a few shows to sort of get a feeling what they were all about, and needless to say I was pretty impressed.
For some of you big fans, what order should I go about getting their CDs in?
Anybody seen Low live? There cominn here in February, and was wondering what to expect.
