8/10 Brett Staff review, 10 December 2009
I always seem to get passed over on the Six Organs of Admittance reviews which I think is a bit out of order to be quite honest. I'm a great lover of his folky raga drone guitar pickin' (since everyone's in the listing mood at the moment I'll join in and say that I'd rank Dark Noontide as one of my favourite albums of the last 10 years) and all I'm asking for is a chance to represent. It's a chance I've got with Empty the Sun, a release which accompanies a Joseph Mattson book of the same name, included in giant 12" style with the LP version and in your classic pocket paperback style with the disc stuck to the back cover with the CD version. Fuck knows what the book is like but the artwork is lovely. The sounds are generally of a lighter character than your usual Six Organs fare with precious little of the lo-fi haze of the earlier stuff, about half the LP is spent in beautiful acoustic contemplation which almost recalls the guitar work of Nick Drake (stylishly chucking in some British influences along with the usual American primitivist fare) and the other half is spent wailing away like Ben Chasny's forgotten that he's doing Six Organs rather than Comets on Fire. That's by no means a criticism though, he does both styles with premium panache. A lovely package on either format..
