"for those of you who dont know earth, blahblah blah. if you are on of those kids who are looking for the more sludge-type material this band has recorded, then i think you should be moving on, this sure hell aint it, try first 'earth1-extracapsular extraction', 'earth2', or 'the demos1991'lp. those three albums are the ones that reek of unholy melvins worship, though they pull it off just as well (if not better) than the melvins did. i know its dumb to say, cause after all, dylan carlson(founding member ofearth) said that after he heard the melvins' gluey porch treatments album, he didnt want to play guitar anymore. the melvins are massive, they are one mammoth of a band, but earth are their own in a way, they perfectly execute the soundtrack to a slow, muddy battle in medieval england, after infection has set in, and gangrene has claimed most of your right leg, they pull it off with the only vocals being background chants, harsh shrieking, and muffled vocals that discuss heroin, the horse, and the china white among other things. they were both heavy, melvins did it tongue in cheek, while earth did it with a real sense of desperation. however, getting back to the record in question, phase3:thrones&dominions is not a very heavy earth album, it is more minimal and beautiful, with quiet guitar noodling and faint keyboard passages recalling the more drawn out, melancholy moments of both pink floyd and justink.broadrick(godflesh,ice,god,final). a great album, but not for everyone. intoxicants of any form work amazingly in conjunction with this album."

"Pretty much everyone who reviewed this album nailed it on the head, as far as describing it is concerned.
It really is amazing and definitely a landmark album.



PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, write to Sub Pop and harrass them until they give in and reissue this must have album.
I have sent numerous emails but alas i feel like a lonely voice in the wilderness.
I think they already know my email address and simply ignore me...sigh.

The more emails they get, they more likely it is that they will realise how great a mistake they have made and try to remedy the situation.

This album IS still available online sometimes...second hand and for 99 thoughts exactly...

All it will take is two minutes of your life.

Check out Pentastar and Earth2, both great albums. Get them while they are still in print...
Good, but for veterans only

"First off, Earth is not the type of band that one purchases
whimsically. This is not a "pop/rock" band by any
means. The primary instruments are guitars, bass and feedback. But
there are no vocals on this album and only one of the songs has drums-
though they don't seem to play any discernible beat. But for those of
you out there that already dig Earth, this album won't dissapoint you.
This is their third full length studio offering (... "a
beauracratic desire for revenge") and apparantely it's received
the most critical acclaim of all their albums. I don't know what the
exact reason is, but the fact that the "movements" (songs)
are shorter than normal for Earth might be a factor. That is, compared
to "earth 2". Most people, having been fed a constant diet
of candy their whole lives, lose interest in a song after about
fifteen minutes or so... not me. And personally, I think "Earth
2" is their best work (and for those of you that don't own any
Earth, I recommend that one instead). I also think the fourth one,
"Pentastar: In the style of demons" is their most
accessible, with some songs actually sounding like
"rock/pop" songs and everything. So basically the final
analysis is this: if you like Earth, you like Earth and this album is
more Earth. If you're not familiar with Earth you should get
"Earth 2".
