Oh my fuck. This album. I sense a lot of time being invested by myself on this release by Panopticon. It's the whole package; Rich atmospherics, successful instrument experimentation, a cohesive and unique theme on the mining/coaling in Kentucky, interesting segues and shift between long songs and a whole lot of audio sampling pertaining to said theme (Which I must admit, sometimes kills off some of the momentum). Everything just sounds… human. Which is a breath of fresh air nowadays. Also, the more I type in this paragraph the douchier everything starts to sound. Fuck.

Saw this on the Bands Facebook page;
"As promised, I have donated $1000 of the money I will make from the new album to Kentuckians for the common wealth, helping the people of Kentucky and helping to stop mountain top removal. It is important to me to protect this land I love so dearly. In just a few short weeks I will have new merch and lps up on the big cartel page so that you can contribute if you wish."
I myself will definitely be buying that 2XLP.
