Stripping their sound back from the grandiose orchestral pomp of their recent albums, Japanese post-rockers Mono return this week with two separate single LPs rather than their usual double. 'The Last Dawn' and 'Rays Of Darkness' explore the opposing themes of light and dark, joy and pain, with 'The Last Dawn' perhaps unsurprisingly being the lighter of the two, taking its cues from shoegaze and minimalist film scores.

The Last Dawn by MONO

8/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017

Recorded at the same time and released on the same day as Rays of Darkness. Both albums compliment each other but take different sides of the same story. The Last Dawn is the good side, it features songs of hope, happiness and the joy of life. As such, this is a very uplifting and moving album and the songs are majestic and gorgeous. The production is crystal clear and suits the music perfectly, the strings are kept to a minimum, not that they've ever bothered me but the regular drums, guitar, bass post-rock is what is really on display here.
