8/10 Brett Staff review, 18 June 2009
I suppose I've had a strange relationship with Tortoise down the years.. For ages they kind of got on my tits even though I had a couple of records by them. I really like those early ones now, the later stuff (including Standards, which everyone else seems to love) I can't really get into so it's a bit of a triumph from a personal point of view that I'm enjoying the new one, Beacons of Ancestorship, as much as I am. There's a definite shift in sound which makes you wonder if one of them found a dusty old box of distortion pedals in their attic one day as some of these tunes are seriously rocking in a surprisingly straightforward way, their jazzier side expressed quite subtly in the time changes amidst the racket. I've got to say that it is a bit worrying how close they get to Mars Volta territory from time to time though. Their more typical melodic experimentation comes more to the fore as the album progresses, augmented by subtle electronic shading, and it brings quite a comforting feel after all these years. Business Lady's well feeling this LP and I've got to say I've not enjoyed one of theirs as much since maybe TNT. If you're a fan that's easily going to be enough of a recommendation for you!
