Red Sparowes, a super-group in the post-rock scene, consist of only the best of musicians. These members from Isis, Halifax Pier, Angel Hair, and Pleasure Forever have been making music to portray the human questions that rise throughout life. The Sparowes have made a unique sound for themselves and honed in on it. The Fear Is Excruciating, But Therein Lies The Answer captures the minds of its listeners and guides them through an accepted and well-realized world of death and destruction while beauty bears all of the weight.
When the weight of the world rains upon you, you turn to the music-and only the best post-rock bands helps you create the perfect soundtrack for life. Groups such as Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Russian Circles, and now Red Sparowses all should be amongst the musically accomplished. With The Fear Is Excruciating, But Therein Lies The Answer, the Sparowes have proven themselves to be a band that can no longer be ignored. The album radiates beauty with sound and creates a beautiful imagery, for any situation. The Fear Is Excruciating, But Therein Lies The Answer is one album that is a must for anyone who enjoys and appreciates post-rock music.
My personal favorite tracks on the album are, In Illusions of Order, A Hail of Bombs, A Mutiny, As Each End Looms A Subsides, each song is edgy in their own way. I love this album and highly recommend it!
