The Fall Of Troy - OK album review
More than okay comeback for influential math-proggers The Fall Of Troy.
The Fall of Troy, despite some breakout singles like the visceral F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X. in the early 2000s, eventually captured the imagination of other musicians rather more than the mainstream. They repeatedly flirted with prog, particularly on 2008’s conceptual, five-part Phantom On The Horizon, but ultimately stuck to an angular strain of post-hardcore characterised by experimental structure and longer running times. OK, their pay-what-you-want comeback album, and first in seven years, is deliberately less calculated. Fluid and raw, it’s intended to be the sound of the band in a room, free from overdubs or extra instrumentation.
