I really like ASMZ. I was thrilled when I heard they had a new album coming out in 2010. However, after listening to this album a few times, I really didnít hear anything that grabbed my attention and demanded it such as the track ďGod Bless Our Dead MarinesĒ from 2005ís ďHorses in the SkyĒ. Such is the conundrum with bands such as ASMZ or their forbears, Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Hooks are not what they do. Itís all about emotion and atmosphere with bands like this. Their songs often develop slowly, and sometimes there isnít a whole lot going on. Iím a fan of this style sometimes, but still there has to be something on an album which just grabs me and doesnít let me forget to come back for more. That didnít really happen with this album.
The answer is the "Metal Bird" duo.
With that said, God Bless Our Dead Marines > I Built/I Fed
