This is not the kind of music that I like, I listened to this album on the off-chance that I would like a new band and it was made very clear to me that I would not. Junius is some kind of art/space rock band that falls into the horrible, “post-metal” category. Which…without looking up any info before that, I did not know.
So here I am listening to “Reports From The Threshold of Death” and I’m wondering to myself, do I get paid enough to listen to stuff I don’t like? Well, we don’t get paid so I can throw that away right now. This album bored the living crap out of me. Not because it was a bad album , oh not at all. I’m smart enough to know good music when I am listening to it, and bar none the music and songwriting is good. I just think I would have to be stoned out of my mind listening to it. I did listen to the album a few times trying to like it, I really did. I just can’t get behind this style of music.
The synth it in and the overall music and atmosphere they convey throughout the album is amazing, I could sit back and close my eyes and feel like I was floating through space with an alien colony on my ass(Bender, Futurama, much?) Which I actually do like to do sometimes, sit back and close my eyes and take in an album and just…feel it, nothing wrong with that. IF that’s what kind of music you like than this album is all for you, it is not for me.
I can’t give something a rating that I do not like. If you like Muse or anything of the sort than this album is 100% for you, trust me. It’s artsy, it’s trance, it’s post-whatever. Smoke some weed, lay back, and enjoy it.
