I also want to mention how much I love Jesu's "Annul" and "Dethroned" in that Godflesh way. Those have tided me over until now. I actually like those better, but whatever, it's nit-picking. Bring on the Godflesh LP!!!!!! And I do hope it is the Jesu s/t to this EP's Heartache. But I'll stop there.
Same here.. I wasnt exactly thrilled when I first heard it (like the day I bought all the other albums new) but after the second or third listen, Ive listened to it at least once a day since it came out. I think I listened to it like 4 times the other night at work..
Its definitely the later 'groovy' material but man it works so perfect now that Justin's learned how to put his guitars back and mix a bass properly!!

The Japanese edition from Inoxia arrived today in the post. I'd only heard Ringer to date, was waiting on getting the full thing, based on my 'yep it's okay' response to that.
It's a pretty solid release especially for a 'reunion' act which always makes me a little dubious from the get go. Especially in regards to JKB's oft quoted statement about Godflesh being a outlet for pure expression and nihilism. Obviously he is not the same person, so is this some artificial angst? Those doubts and questions notwithstanding...this a good release and yep the dubs are really good too.
Have to say that the title track is definitely my favourite, but it is marred somewhat by the peaky brickwalling. I'm assuming it's an aesthetic choice, but in the context of the rest of the record it actually sounds like a mastering mistake as the rest sounds really good, hot, but not overtly so.
Bring on the album!
