The Sound Of Animals Fighting - The Ocean And The Sun (2008)



They've gone back to the stripped-down lineup that performed on Tiger & The Duke, minus a few members. They retain a little bit of the experimentation that made Lover, The Lord Has Left Us so intolerable to some, but it is toned down. Despite similarities one may draw between the three records, they are all unique beasts. This beast is slower, at first, than one might expect. This beast builds up and breaks down and is always heavy but not always hunting. As always, worth a listen.
