David Crystal is an English linguist that has written both popular and academic texts on the subject. I thank him for making more people aware of how language ACTUALLY works without being too aggressive as many academics are when it comes to linguistics. That's mostly because most of the popular conceptions about language are at least 70% false.
While Sleep may be a band that is quite esoteric and drug-ridden, there's a heavy atmosphere on this album that's undeniable. I love to turn this on while I'm surfing the internet, reading for school, or writing out homework. It requires patience. Many people won't appreciate one song that's over an hour long. That's unfortunate for them.
Boris seems to have a paradigm shift with every album. While there are elements that they have hinted on previously on this record, I can say that they have achieved their goal again. I feel that this album drags at times, not in that it's boring, but in that some of the songs are really less than enjoyable. Aileron and Riot Sugar are among their best, though.
