The first studio Earth album in nearly a decade, and a departure from the previous four, Hex is a surprisingly beautiful instrumental album. Instead of distorted riffing, we get the austere beauty of a telecaster roaming the Western . It's a genuine representation of our affliction of romance with the despairing beauty of loneliness, the sound of being in solitary confinement in an expansive, wide-open land. Try good ol' post rock like Mogwai or Low, on a collision course with some of Calexico's more spacious moments and you've got the sound of Hex. The LP's tracks.

This album is basically 45 minutes of really, really, really slow and really, really, really heavy country/western music, with hints of the bands drone history as well as some psychedelic moments thrown in. The guitars twang sounds like something out of a Johnny Cash era country album and definitely give the album a real authentic Western flavor. There's no real amazing solos or crazy riffing going on here; this is pure mood/atmospheric music. In the hands of another musician, Hex: Or Printing In The Infernal Method would have crashed and burned. In the hands of the man behind Earth, somehow, someway, against all odds, this album is a smashing success.

Led by guitarist Dylan Carlson, what sets the band apart from the rest of the doom metal pack is that Earth almost always completely bypasses vocals - usually focusing entirely on a few plodding notes per song - as evidenced by their 2005 release (and first for the Southern Lord label), Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method. Once more (as on Earth's previous release, Living in the Gleam of an Unseathed Sword), Carlson is teamed with drummer Adrienne Davies, while several other guest instrumentalists supply bass, lap/pedal steel guitar, and even trombone and tubular bells.

Imagine Wagons This is the first time I stumbled across Earth, and the album just blows me away. It's slow, droning, repetitive in all the best ways (never thought that's gonna be something I'd say in my life) and it's haunting, yet strangely mesmerizing. You get lost in the simple melodies, engulfed by pure, grungy atmosphere. It's a wonderful, opium-fueled nap for your soul.

The mastering on this is great, but the pressing is a bit noisy and poppy (even when cleaned thoroughly).

I don't have a very good turntable so you'd better see the replies to this post if you want to know how the pressing sounds.The music is really good. Most of these tracks are long and impressionistic, with all the good and bad connotations of that word; only two or three are as "repetitious" as the rest of Earth's music. Instead these pieces begin with very elementary themes and develop from there for five to eight minutes. Not all of the ideas are worth that much time, of course, but several are. It's hard listening at first but the gorgeous guitar tone and instrumental palette make it easier to stand the meandering. Recommended.

The 80$ TEAC is your answer :) Get a decent turntable with a good cart and you're in the game ;)

Yeah, you're right. Mine isn't really crackly, but it sounds to me like the volume is blown up and details are lost. I've only ever listened to it on my $80 Teac though, that may be the reason why.

Crackly vinyl and loud mix? No dynamic range? Mate, what are you listening to? my copy sounds fantastic and is one of the most perfect sounding records I have. Sounds different than the CD in the good way, mastering is great imo.I've heard sounds I never heard on the cd before. What turntable/cart are you using?
