Tribulation – The Children Of The Night
Native Construct – Quiet World
I’ve been listening to Casuistry by Abiotic this week. I probably fall in between you guys. I definitely enjoyed the album more than Brian, but I’m not sure if I like it as much as Nick. I think my only criticism of Casuistry is that it didn’t quite keep my attention for the entire length of the album. By the time the last three songs come on, I don’t think they add anything further to the album. I realize it’s not a long album and by no means does it drag, but I think I was looking for something to keep my attention by the end.
I did check out that Native Construct album. It was a bit too crazy even for me. My feelings are the same as Nick’s initial assessment. I heard one song and thought it was cool and wanted to hear more. But then when I heard more I realized that I didn’t need to hear more. Based on Nick’s review, it sounds like I should give it more of a chance and let it sink in for about a week.
Yeah, Native Construct takes work. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the podcast I probably would have gotten lost and given up on it. Thankfully, being the invested host I am, I stuck it out and it grew on me. If you have the time and there aren’t a lot of other albums catching your attention, try circling back to it.
Thanx for review guys. Glad that you like our album
You’re quite welcome! Thanks for your submission!
