Do Make Say Think - You, You're A History In Rust (2007) Retail CD
Although I own all of 'Do Make Say Think's albums and have enjoyed them over the years I have always felt that even the better albums ('&yet &yet' and 'goodbye enemy airship') didn't quite get to where they were heading. This sense of exploration, of a journey rather than a destination, is of course what keeps them interesting, don't get me wrong, I like them for that, but this album just seems so much more complete.
Exploration is still very much part of the music, but this is exploration by a band that are now not only highly accomplished in what they do (essentially post rock but more jazzymore… and less apocalyptic) but who also seem to have moved into a new space.
Basically the main change seems to be the introduction of a more folky element to the mix, reminiscent perhaps of something like Akron/Family. But this is a much more grown up version than Akron/Family's controlled chaos or zappa-esque goofy musical shifts. Vocals, singing and chanting, are a major part of the new move but are not excessive, popping in only two or three times as stop off points amid the more free-flowing instrumental sections.
The final 'song' - 'in mind'- being one such vocal section, but the heavy distortion laid over what seems to be almost everything on the track sweeps the vocals beautifully up into the mix rather than letting them sit on top. Lyrically this last part shares something of the sentiments of the 'Flaming Lips' song 'Do You Realise' - albeit a more 'haiku' version - but again the overwhelming sweep of the music ensures this isn't too blatant, in fact the words are just on the edge of being distinguishable, which means they slip past in a kind of ecstatic flurry and only afterwards does their meaning seep out. This creates an intense and jubilant finale to an album that is, in my view, almost perfect.
