Familiar but something different
This is definitely they're best imo. It has the style and sound that I like about the Black Angels (and I like all their releases) but the songwriting has a little more something to it. I think it was time for them to move in this direction. They had explored all they could in they way they had stylisctically in their previous albums, so the expansion of their songwriting musical/sonic palate was great (if it could be called that) and right on imo. Love it!
