Shining - One One One (2013)
After hearing about, but not listening to, the much acclaimed "Blackjazz" album, I decided to get myself introduced with the band by listening to their latest release "One One One." Shining have a very intriguing sound which reminds me somewhat of Meshuggah but less heavy and with much more explicit jazz influences. Yet, despite this very unique sound, "One One One" is a mixed affair with too many mediocre songs to make it a great album. Some tracks did stand out, especially the last one "Paint the Sky Black," but overall it's a grower. I'll have to check out and review "Blackjazz" at some point so stay tuned.
