Boris - LφVE & EVφL
Oct 6, 2019
I see LOVE & EVOL as a back and fourth between the stylistic changes the band has gone thru out the years,while tears ep was mainly J-Pop inspired and the girl on the cover noticed me on Twitter

LOVE and EVOL's first single underwhelmed and made me worried for the new album but in the context of the record it not that bad
The opener Away From You sees Takeshi singing the lyrics in English which is strange for a Boris song since all of their songs are sang in Japanese but this one is different creating this beautiful balad

Coma is a noisy second track with not really that much going
EVOL is a 16 minute beast that i can confidently say it drags on for too long but i can see why the decision of this track to be about 16 minutes long showcasing the drone and post rock sound they have perfected on records like Feedbacker or Flood

I see LOVE and EVOL as Boris looking back at their back catalog and combining the 3 sounds they are nromally known for it one record but falls flat on it face because of the inconsistency beween tracks.
