This is an incredible album by a talented band who never received the recognition they deserved. Format: Audio CD. I made a little mistake by including this album when I made my Five Star Metal Albums Listmania list several months ago. I still feel this album is worth five stars, but can I really call it a "metal" album?
This really isn't metal - not in the traditional sense like Blind Guardian, Iron Maiden, or Opeth are metal. I've heard people label Coalesce as "hardcore", "grindcore", "math-metal", and "punk" - none of these labels are even halfway accurate. If anything, this band falls into the same category if you can call it that as Tool or the Melvins; the category being bands that can only be described as being heavy because nothing else fits the bill.
Describing Coalesce's sound isn't easy, yet it's my obligation as a reviewer to try. This band has been compared with Relapse labelmates and fellow innovators Dillinger Escape Plan. DEP is the faster and more sonically schizophrenic of the two; whereas Coalesce are slower, more bottom heavy and riff-oriented using detuned Sabbath, Zeppelin, and early Soundgarden style riffs.
Even with all of their differences, both groups are equally addictive. He doesn't sound much better than all the cookie-monter singers blighting the world, but you have to love his lyrics. He doesn't try to gross you out. He doesn't try to be poetic only to come off as a pretentious bore. He doesn't whine about his childhood. Ingram is someone who is tired of all the politcally correct whiners, the "anti-sellouts" who in actuality are the worst sellouts of all, the easily offended, the wannabe thugs, and just about anyone else who is abusing their position of responsibility in the media.
How can you disagree with someone who says "Real people don't give a [darn] how you think they should live"? I can't. The only thing bad I have to say about RiJL is its length.
It has only 9 songs, the longest of which is barely over three minutes long. But I'd rather be wanting more from an album than feeling like it has outworn its welcome- which RiJL does not do. Of late, Relapse records has practically provided one-stop shopping for my heavy-music needs, and these guys are one reason why.
I buy a lot of albums, and "Revolution In Just Listening" is doubtless one of the best heavy recordings I've had the privilege of hearing lately, be it metal, hardcore, or otherwise I'd call this noisecore myself.
Coalesce's sound isn't quite as maniacal as that of such labelmates as Soilent Green and the Dillinger Escape Plan, but they more than make up for it with some of the tighest grooves and heaviest riffs around. The songs on "RJIL" are short, sharp and to the point, but they manage to squeeze a lot of inventiveness and musical bludgeoning into a three-minute period. The anger and intensity in Sean Ingram's throaty growls is the perfect complement to the mathematical intricacy of the band behind him, which unleashes the kind of unrelenting onslaught that the noisecore genre is known for.
Although all the musicians are clearly skilled, special mention must go to drummer James Dewees, whose beats are so complex you practically have to send away to NASA to figure them out. Definitely a must-have album for discriminating metal nuts. These guys rock so fxxxing hard that I don't even care that this cd clocks in at a brief, yet pleasurably brutal, 23 minutes. Although there are similarities between Coalesce and the aforementioned bands Coalesce has effectively created their own sound that definitely would not be mistaken for anyone else.album: " Revolution In Just Listening" () 1.
