Black Country, New Road - Ants From Up There
Feb 4, 2022 (updated Feb 4, 2022)
100
out of every album i thought could become my all-time favorite, i'd never be able to predict it'd be this one. however, black country, new road has pulled out all the stops to make an absolutely flawless album. this band's chemistry and glue is as baseline perfect as you could ask for. every instrument in the mix always contributes to the swelling and morphing of the instrumentals, giving former frontman isaac wood an enormous canvas, over which he goes full send. his already-perfect combination of cryptic, wordy lyrics and melodramatic delivery strikes gold with the new "chamber" approach to the mixing and soundscape. i'm gonna have to come back to this one to see if it can keep its rating, but it's fair to say that 2022's music output has some pretty unbeatable competition already.
