God Is in the TV

Their own, personal wanderlust has taken them to almost every corner of the planet, and this experience has left a lasting influence on their music, different elements of which can be heard each time you press “play”.

AllMusic

Nowhere Now Here is among the most musical of Mono's albums. That said, it remains inseparably bound to their trademark sonic exploration of multivalent textures, extreme dynamics, and sheer rock power in revealing transformational emotional and psychological states.

I hate that people discredit music for being "behind-the-times" like if this was released in 2002, it would be hailed as a masterpiece. I get that it's not quite as technically impressive due to their being a post-rock precedent of almost 20 years, but this album is still absolutely gorgeous. It was such a journey from start to finish.

Favs: Funeral Song, Sorrow, Meet Us Where the Night Ends, After You Comes the Flood

Where "Nowhere Now Here" really shines is by the subtle way it builds intensity, through dark and gloomy textures and sounds that seem to have come from utter hopelessness. The Japanese band came through with a cinematic, thought provoking and transcendent post-rock album, in which it's masterful execution will keep me returning to re-experience the dread and emotions this LP presents.

I suspect I'll have to return and re-review this album in the future. It's been almost a week ... read more

Post-Rock might be my favourite genre. That said, i don't think this is appealing at all. very underwhelming and tedious
