Earth: The Bees Made Honey in the Lions Skull (4.5/5)

Joshua's Top 10 Non-Metal Albums of 2008
#4 out of 10
(tie)


Year: 2008
Genre: Southern Drone Rock
Label: Southern Lord
TRT: 53:24

Perfectly crafted tracks with immense depth and character are nothing new from these pioneers, but who would have guessed drone could be this catchy? Never before has a drone album captured my attention as fully as this one. This has to be the most accessible drone record ever written. Earth have truly reinvented themselves, and I for one am extremely impressed.

04 Engine of Ruin
05 Omens and Portents II: The Carrion Crow

I'll be taking a listen to this as well. I have been thinking of getting into the real drone pioneers but 'haven't had the time' or something. Lame excuses aside, now I'll take them up.

I'm halfway through now. Listening to Engine of Ruin and this stuff is just one of the best albums in a while. Amazingly good.
