Anodyne - Lifetime Of Gray Skies (Level Plane - 2004)


They leave cracks and spaces
inbetween notes and riffs
There are levels and there are levels
There are drum lessons and there are drum lessons
If everyone decides that they
want to be Dillinger Escape Plan then
who will run the Jet Propulsion Lab
in years to come
Not to mention that future M.I.T. mixers
will lean heavily toward They Might Be Giants fans
The rebels will be on the road
Inhaling the woodwork and faux-humble craft
of Unitarian Universalist basements from
fruited plain to fruited plain
The bass is back as noodle urger
Fomenting the need to twiddle
while Rome sputters
There are hints and stretches of
something beyond the pale/veil/door
A seasick ambience that doesn’t last
long enough
The din less inspired then one would hope
But the proper density
of sound is in evidence
They know what the effect
of their playing is
It’s a controlled environment
As for live
well
I can imagine the sweat and impacted molars
On record
I am rarely urged to fight
But I don’t run
I admire the density
The thick strings of notes
and noise that make up a
plan for a spacious
if empty
suburban home
