Boomkat Product Review:
After years of silence, Poem Rocket (a band based around the nucleus of Michael Peters and Sandra Gardner) have returned with a CD double harbouring an album of monstrous proportions. This is the kind of apocalyptic folk you might expect to hear from David Tibet and his crew, and though a predominantly acoustic affair, the music on the first disc has a morphinated, doomy quality with tracks like 'Into The Night Sea' and 'Ileah' weaving a bleak, dramatic narrative. The second disc is slightly more raucous with distorted guitars and pummelling drumkits driving the music forward. Here the music takes on a quality you might associate with the early 4AD roster: everything's tinted by an '80s-style reverb and a textured guitar sound. Still the gloomy themes of the first disc persist, and the whole package comes across as an epic of 21st century malaise. Heavy.
