    @SCREAM109 agreed, it wasn't nearly perfect in every way like First Utterance but I still enjoyed it. I just think they were trying too hard to make a First Utterance 2 rather than something more original

    @MilitaryTwoStep: Out of the Coma may not be up to par with FIrst Utterance but it's in no way mediocre.

    gradually coming to the realisation and acceptance there are no bands like Comus and every obscure folk record someone reccs you from the 70's on the basis "it totes sounds like comus dude!" is a LIE and what they mean is "it totes sounds like comus if they had none of the appeal of comus dude!" [2]

    this band deserved to have 9 albums of intensifying quality with each release not one amazing record followed by mediocrity. there is no justice in this world.

    "there's no album that sounds like First Utterance of course, but instrumentally it sounds like other british folk rock of the 70s and has that same medieval vibe. nothing comes close to the intensity of the playing and the dark lyrical themes though, no one else had the balls.". I'd agree, but did you listen Hoelderlin's Traum by Hoelderlin and St. Radiguns by Spyrogira? that albums have a similar kind of intensity, especially Hoelderlin's Traum. Check 'em out. And you, people, if you're reading this, listen that albums, too.

    i have listened to Comus for the first time when i was 18. i didnt get it. now i am 24 and this album hits me so much, i nearly got an orgasm while listening.

    it doesn't really sound like any other 60 or 70's folk rock band instrumentally though. it really doesn't.

    "couldn't imagine this band coming out of any other time than the late 60s, early 70s. " really? because it's pretty much a timeless album and there's nothing from either decade which sounds like it. nothing from many other year either. maybe it's folk music from a time we've not yet reached. but as a band i think they masterfully escaped any of the cheese or cliches of the 60's and 70's which is what that guy meant.

    I'll propose something, listen to First Utterance while you listen to Fantômas self titled album, i don't know this things strangely complete each other, totally weird.

    best album ever made

  • NoahIsCool

    "Jan Dukes seems that little bit darker, twisted, unconventional, mature and sinister sounding than Comus to my ears. " not even close, imo. the only similarity between the two is the frantic playing at some parts. lyrically JDDG have nothing on Comus's more taboo subjects, and Comus definitely sounded more twisted when they were using off-tune string instruments and Wootton's madman vocals where he seems to enjoy the stuff he's singing about. First Utterance can't be touched, though JDDG are very solid

    V maybe the whole monster rape thing was weird but musically their stuff was pretty similar to many of the psych folk bands of the time. albeit i think they did it the best.

    June 2013

    v Too weird for the stuff that came out at that time, don't you think?

    I dont know what is here amazing and cool...but not bad a few songs. The Herald, was at second and last album, more сommercial...and good sound.

    Drip Drip is pretty much the greatest song ever made.

    I agree with the vocals being amazing a large part of what makes this album a masterpiece, he's like a super expressive Ian Anderson.

    Well, I think "Out of the Coma" is a lot more than half as good as "First Utterance". Granted, after 41 years the novelty is a bit out of it, but those two match in style. Shame only that they didn't record the "Malgaard Suite" anew, instead of this shitty old recording...

    i dont know who hates on the vocals, but roger wootton is an absolutely incredible vocalist

    First Utterance is wonderful and Out of the Coma is pretty decent on first listen. More would be lovely though.
