Scott Kelly - The Wake 12"
Kelly's The Wake is his second solo effort. The first was issued way back in 2001. Since that time Neurosis has released three studio albums, a live offering, and a few EPs, including one with Jarböe. The Wake reveals an incredible growth in Kelly's writing. This one feels at least as spontaneous as Spirit Bound Flesh, but at the same time, the narrative skill he's been developing since that time is admirable; he's learned to get down to very specific and frighteningly accessible terms concerning the current state of affairs in his own soul.
