6/10 Ant Staff review, 06 March 2008Both Phil and I tried to get into the latest Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-LaBand. This is way too clever for me as I just got confused at it starting on track 13 but it now makes sense as it is called '13 Blues For Thirteen Moons'. There are elements of this that are interesting but they're completely overshadowed by the greater part of the album that I realy do not like. The strings and vocals are reminiscent of P.I.L who I love but there is somthing about this that gets on my nerves. I think it's the same kind of sounds that I hear in Kiss Thee Anus Of A Black Cat and Current 93 that put me off. Lovely packaging though as you'd expect from Constellation.
10/10 Darren Brown Customer review,
A silver Mt. Zion is an absolutely beautiful music ensemble. I find every album as moving as the one before it, and 13 Blues for Thirteen moons is no exception.What absolutely pisses me of however is everyone talking negative about Efrim's vocals. His vocals bring so much sincerity and meaning to the music and without him upfront wailing away would be a loss. He sings more in this album than in Horses In the Sky, and I have no problems with that. What i also love about this new album is how each song differs. Each of the 4 beautiful songs is unique in their own way yet they still establish that amazing ASMZ sound. If you see the beauty in this band as i do, then i would highly suggest picking up a copy of 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons, i promise you will not be disappointed.
