This album is dark, heavy, rhythmic and layered with acoustic doom. Each song starts out slowly and rises to a brooding heavy metal crescendo: a tsunami-like Wall of Sound. Every song on Purple is unique, emotionally gripping and soul stirring. This is a great album. The trite label post-rock doesn't begin to do justice to this emotionally moving masterpiece. Highly recommended for those unafraid to wander outside of safe genre boundaries.
Favorite track: The Tides Are Turning.
