I think he was referring to the pre-Kindo band, This Day & Age.
OH! Never listened to them. Only listened to Kindo. I'll have to check them out.

Do you understand what I mean by Eastern vibe? Haha. I just want to make sure I'm not crazy.
Sort of, I hear it more on something like Dust though.

Yes, do! I actually might prefer them to Kindo.

It's hard to say...it's jazz music. Very complex jazz music. You know Sleeping at Last? Imagine them with jazz influences, I guess.

I think Kindo is a much better band (especially now considering that Kindo has released more albums than TD&A), but I prefer TD&A stylistically

the first 7 tracks from The Bell and the Hammer are 7 of my favorite songs in all of musicdom

As much as I dig TD&A, they aren't even close to Kindo in my eyes.

thanks for the review, I liked the singles, but they weren't as astonishing as I'd hope so, that's good to hear these are actually the weakest tracks, can't wait!

ps. I also love TD&A, and TB&TH is one of my favourite albums, but I'd have to admit that TROK is surely a better and more skilled group.

Good review to point out "I Hate Music". Did not expect a song like that from these guys. Sooooooo true and soooooo good.

Cannot believe all of the hate for the two singles. To my ears they're two of the strongest tracks on the album!

Clearly this band kicks ass, but I find this seems to fall apart as an album. I'd much rather listen to individual songs and skip around than stick to the official tracklist...the whole just doesn't seem as considered as its parts.

Funny, the only real weak thing about this as a record to me are the singles and that the closer isn't as epic as "Psalm" or "Hold Out".
