Not unlike a horror flick on the cheap, but infinitely better.
Label: Touch And Go

2 or Three? The two albums are almost completely indistinguishable — baroque, plodding arrangements (not a criticism) in some decrepit minor key, vocals like howls and pianos pounding, pounding, pounding. In the end, 2 got a slight edge solely for "It's a Crime I Never Told You About the Diamonds in Your Eyes," undoubtedly the jauntiest song this San Diego group ever wrote (when singer Pall Jenkins belts, "And maayyyyybeeeee!" you're so with him).… read more »

wonderfully bleak


So dark but so uplifting - great for the soul (if we had them)...

the perfect soundtrack to being stood up


i had only heard of BHP trough some pres and never got a chance to hearing an album...so when they played phoenix at modified (a magnificent place to go for great indie music) i asked a girl i was interested in if she wanted to go too...she said yes...she never showed...i became a HUGE BHP fan that night...that was the tour for this album...every song they played just completely echoed in my head and rang true in my heart...we finally hooked up later...she cheated on me..now when i am depressed i add this to the list of albums i listen to, which include the swans white light from the mouth of infinity, joy division closer, red house painters ST, and radiohead ok computer...im amazed im still alive thom

Nicely sleazy


I saw this lot in Washington a few years back on holiday and it fit the late night atmosphere perfectly, though I had no idea who they were. So seeing it here I gave it a go, expecting to think a little less of them (after all, it was out of context of holiday, alcohol and late night club ambience) but no, this is a superb album and by far one of the best I've heard in any genre for a long time.

Vocally Annoying


It's a crime that BHP's whiny, nasal vocalist dominates what would otherwise be a great album of thoughtful and interesting music.

2 is #1


If you're deciding between the three albums here (and the one not available), I'd recommend putting your money on this one. With the songs mentioned above (I agree fully), this one is really the best of the BHP trilogy.

My faves


Recommend Blue Tears, Your Church Is Red, and Its A Crime.

They Say All Music Guide

Imagine a black, marble staircase winding up to an esoteric temple. The sky around you is the color of blood mixed with Balsamic vinegar. The moon is yellow, and hangs low on the horizon while Eastern European bats streak low over your head. The sound of dragging chains can be heard in what must be the dungeon below. Despite all of this gloom and terror, you must go inside. Romance demands it. If you ever want to hold the love of your life again, you must face unimaginable terror to make it happen, and even then there aren’t any guarantees. Obviously, it’s hard to summarize the sound of the Black Heart Procession on their second album, 2. All struggling metaphors aside, they are brilliant in their attempt to articulate the difficulty of fighting through the slicing depression that a battered heart can induce. The band’s evolution is as apparent as a third limb. Black Heart Procession may be the first band from a country-folk rock background to sew an array of alien sound samples and organs together with an ability to shift into a superb indie rock gear. All of these tools do nothing but complement the exquisite piano, guitar, and drums. Pall Jenkins’ voice has grown light years from the last album, and the end result produces a yearning voice that gives a stunning side to pain. – Gregg Rounds
