Boomkat Product Review:
And so the Metope man ventures boldly into full length territory. There’s seldom any unwelcome surprises with the Areal posse – blorty jams for scuzzy warehouse shenanigans, sounds messed up within an inch of their lives, then brought back into line by a relentless 5.30am drive running off something other than cherry cola. “Nashville” has on the surface little to engage the country fans amongst you, instead wellying the distortion, slowing it down with some outside keys, then wading it back in. And perhaps that describes this album in large part, on, off, then really most certainly on. We guess you probably know what you’re getting with Areal by now, and for the cognoscenti and the stay up forever crew, this is prime german booming material.
