Undigested #3: YOB—Atma

An inadvertant one, as I’m just deciding to do this about 8 minutes into the closing track, “Adrift in the Ocean”, which declared its intent to be the best song YOB has ever written with its terrifyingly gorgeous arpeggiated intro. (there is a mosquito that’s attacking my foot. I hate it.) I expected it to be punctuated via heft of cymbal & distortion but—SPOILER—only got a tom-heavy, Neurosis-jam “intro 2”. Always foresee the critical change and delay its resolution. They know this and delivered. I really only have one question:

Here’s the first track, “Prepare the Ground“. Now go listen to the whole damn thing.
