To say that the group packs a lot into Civilisation's six songs is an understatement, but the results are far from overwrought. Small yet expertly crafted, this is Kero Kero Bonito at their inventive, heartfelt best.

'Civilisation' é um manifesto, uma obra cuja as bases estão fincadas numa centena de referências em que juntas, formam um passeio histórico único e excentricamente sólido.

Da união dos EPs 'Civilisation I' e 'Civilisation II', nasce o álbum 'Civilisation', uma verdadeira odisseia, onde sem receio nenhum de experimentar mais uma vez, KKB passeia pelo passado, presente e futuro através de faixas que são perfeitamente ... read more

"the river" assim como a primeira faixa tem uma produção muito boa. ... read more
I originally gave Civilisation 1 an 86, but I don't think that the time I realised much how of an upgrade this was to their sound. Rich production, interesting song structures and fully realised atmospheres. I honestly believe that I underrated Civ 1.

Civilisation received a 95 earlier this year, and I stand by that.

Logic would now tell you that the full Civilisation album would get a 90 or 91, maybe pushing a bit higher due to the addition of "Gateway", but I'm giving this a ... read more
