Cloudkicker - Let Yourself Be Huge

Cloudkicker - Let Yourself Be Huge

Cloudkicker is a post-metal project that stands head and shoulders above most of its contemporaries; only, B.M. Sharp is just one person. His output is prolific to say the least, and his style is varied. One minute it's a slowed down acoustic riff, the next it's a barrage of tone that leaves your ear searching for the route you took into this land, and unable to find it, the mind relaxes and starts to drift. Exclusively instrumental, epic, monstrous and grand, Cloudkicker will not disappoint fans of post-metal or progressive music in general.

Let Yourself Be Huge is a far more subdued mathy album from Cloudkicker. Past albums have had an almost assaulting feel from front to back; walls of guitar were the norm. LYBH, however, has opened up a softer side of Sharp's writing and recording style. I recommend this album if you're a fan of cheap red wine, cigarettes and writing poetry alone in a darkened room.
