GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR
in this second coming of gy!be, ‘luciferian towers’ stands out as the lushest and most stirring of their recent albums - truly awesome, transcendent music.
across four pieces divided into distinct movements, this inspired ensemble weave fluttering orchestral textures, soaring guitar motifs, and a sense of deep narrative and compositional adventure. a godspeed album is a thing to be pored over, its beautiful and enigmatic physical object to be held and scoured for clues. you can stream or download this album if you want, but that would be completely missing the point. this demands and rewards full immersion. it is possibly their best (and indeed prettiest) work since ‘lift yr skinny fists…’, where – for once – feelings of triumph overcome the pervading darkness.
