    The awful toy piano on 'Bliss and Void Inseparable" is unbearable. Same three notes for the better part of an hour, loudest part of the mix. It absolutely destroys the track.

    @TwilightIsMe: Morton Feldman's second string quartet lasts for about 5h ;)

    I honestly only found out about this band because I found a shirt of theirs in a thrift store in Japan. Which is surprising because Japan is quite some ways away.
