    It's good, but it's not essential.
  2. It's mostly a thing of pleasing lonesome grooves--but there are moments where it sounds like the Mahavishnu Orchestra tuning up.

    There's a familiar elemental tone to the Dirty Three's latest album – except this time the oceanic influence is replaced by snow and sky and rain.

    An album that could be the soundtrack to the most fucked-up cowboy movie yet to be made.
  5. Toward the Low Sun staggers to get that momentum, though it does achieve atonement through progression.
