Now this, this is real grunge.

"This is the magnum opus of Olympia band Earth. Dylan Carlson is the mastermind behind this mostly twosome band. He also was best friends, with Kurt Cobain... The cd is a tribute to the southern rock we love, entwined with the grunge (blues, punk, and metal) that is oh so famous from Seattle. The cd is hard and southernish, but it is more on the grunge side. This is the most real grunge is ever going to get, or at least Ive heard. It has its folk undertones, Imagine going to a festival and listening to the Aztec music on the wood flutes, and the bongos. It reminds me of middle eastern music as well. Its more of a composition, and its very well written, and meticulously put together. Dylan has the talent that Kurt Cobain had, maybe more in the composition department. I hardly hear any vocals, its mostly instrumental. They also use an organ on this record. I plan on getting others. This is a great album. It reminds me so much of Seattle. The slow, dark tones are what make me happy. And this has got it down pat. Introduction, Crooked Axis for string quartet,Tallahassee(on video), and Coda Maestoso in F (flat) minor were the songs played on the documentary Kurt& Courtney. When I listen to Introduction and Coda Maestoso, I realize that they are one in same. Except in another key. hmm

1.Introduction 10/10
2. High Command 8.5/10
3. Crooked Axis for string quartet 10/10
4.Tallahassee 10/10
5. Charioteer (Temple song) 9/10
6.Peace in Mississippi *Jimi Hendrix cover* nicely done, I must add 10/10
7.Sonar and Depth Charge 9.5/10
8. Coda Maestoso in F (flat) Minor 12/10"
My only complaint is that it's not long enough.

"i like this album a lot. it's long, engrossing, and ultimately mellow with lots of good vibes. there's something in the music that sounds like a huge airplane floating in midair, creating a loud rumbling hum that drones on and on. everything else accompanies this sort of aimless drifting happily about without a care in the world."
Just gets better and better

"This album is just a natural extension of the previous three studio albums, while being more experimental in terms of songwriting. The wonderful thing about Earth is the subtlety of their music, and how Dylan Carlson seamlessly blends 70's metal riffs, southern rock, and eastern influences into masterful songs. Some real treats on this album are the haunting "Crooked Axis For a String Quartet", the powerful "High Command", and "Coda Maestoso in F (Flat) Minor", which was used in the end credits of the "Kurt and Courtney" documentary. This is a good first album to buy if you're just getting into Earth and/or the whole drone/grunge scene; it's easier to digest than most if your just getting your feet wet. I'd also recommend their other three available albums, Phase 3: Thrones and Dominions, Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Version, and Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars."
