"Hex" was the first release by Earth in the guise we now know them - clean, sparingly picked guitars, the odd crack of drum, sustain, decay, and a lot of what Creston Spiers (of Harvey Milk) calls "white space". Following on from the band's earlier, filthier records (which stripped Sabbath's power chords of rhythmic impulse and bathed the listener in scut), and Dylan Carlson's well-documented personal problems, "Hex" at the time seemed hymnal, static, a music purged of demons but yet to find redemption, and a complete break with Earth's past. In the years since it was first released, the LP has lost none of its intrigue, it's power to still the heart, its utter, numbing, weightlessness, even as Carlson and co. continue on more recent recordings to trace a line between it and "Earth 2". This re-press on black wax finally affords the record the quality of vinyl it lacked on first release.
