8/10 according to on Sat 17 Oct, 2009

Stray Ghost (aka Anthony Saggers) takes about a minute to wring any audible sound from our speakers on his new CD, making a mockery of our thirty second soundclips in the process, but once a hazy, static-filled Tim Hecker-esque drone pierces the silence things get a bit radioactive, reminding me of the mysterious no mans land of Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker. Ostensibly an ambient release, it's a fair old cacophony at times but I always find this kind of ambience very involving and full of interest.. An active listen rather than a passive one, if you like. An Avalanche of Swollen Tongues comes in a fancy digipak joint that looks well pro, you can tell Dead Pilot know they've got something a little bit special on this one so they've gone the extra mile for it.. Nice job.

So, what do you think?

"An Avalanche of Swollen Tongues" opens with the 23 minute long title track of kaleidoscopic spectral ambiance. Swells of celestial tones reach back and forth around your mind, surrounding your sense in a warm glow. The glorious "Grains and Waves" follows. An outstanding piece of melodic genius; euphoric and intense and filled with overwhelming emotion. 

Released on PRO REPLICATED CD (NOT CDr), limited to 500 copies, packaged in 4 panel brown recycled card digipak.
