The Enemy Chorus is a hypnotic voyage through a largely aphotic locale with unpredictable bursts of light and sound perhaps amidst the heavens, or maybe under our own feet. While no less beautiful than their debut, this record carries a greater feeling of uncertainty, longing, anxiety, and sadness. The group's production skills have been greatly refined ? times, reminiscent of Nigel Godrich's great layered atmospheres. Though, the approach to recording is essentially the same, and the distinct "Earlies sound" remains intact. Their listening habits changed considerably between the recording of the two albums exploring the depths of progressive and krautrock. Influences range from the essential work of Faust, to prog greats Gentle Giant, to the musique concrete madness of Jean-Claude Vannier.
