Anoice-The Black Rain

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?3ayteym4gclcn5v

This is not the Anoice of love and laughter; this is an Anoice living in the shadow of destruction.  The Black Rain withholds answers, preferring to dwell in the land of the buried in order to translate their voices.  And yet there is great yearning in these sullen sounds: a violin that wishes to raise her head to heaven, a piano afraid to pause for fear the tears will erupt.  ”Colder Than Thermite” exemplifies this approach, stalling to silence at the midway mark, giving way to distant, mournful organ.  And then everything slows down, like a clock losing energy after its owner has died.  Even “Ripples” ends before it’s over, as if lacking the strength to finish.  A hint of circus melody is carried on the breeze, a phantasm of better times.

The rain is made audible two tracks later: a combination of elements associated with life, twisted by radiation to its opposite.  But “White Paper” intimates a blank slate, a future yet unwritten.  The scroll is calling for a scribe, the ink for a brush.  What characters will be written on this catastrophe, what lines will embrace its lineage?  In the opening bars of “Drops”, a shift: the last tears, the last drops, the last ripples, the last advancing tide; and the trains begin to run again, and the marching band begins to march.  The only drops now are from buckets and ceilings.  The clouds have moved away.  In the end – as portrayed by Shinto on the back cover – the weeping woman rises, head upright, as if to say, I no longer need to be protected from the things of this world.  She has wept the world’s tears, bathed in black rain, and emerged scathed, yet intact: irrevocably altered, irrepressibly resolute, the mirror of a nation that can not, will not allow its character to be determined by destiny alone.

    I just can’t keep up with you, especially considering the other blogs I follow. The funny thing is, so far, I haven’t noticed a sacrifice to quantity over quality. I love that cover, don’t think I’ve heard of Yoko Shinto before.

    I got many transcodes in the web
    also your 320 seems a transcode from the spectro analisys
    so i wanted to ask you a different bitrate (V2 or V0) but if you don’t have the cd it’s useless
