The Mad Professor This is my first venture into the Black Mountain, and I'm loving getting lost in its caverns of smoke filled beauty.

comaunite I've been overlooking these guys for a long while now, but loved some separate tracks I've heard of them. The time has come to buy and properly listen through their albums. This is my second one and I am thoroughly enjoying it! Favorite track: Mothers of the Sun.

Oddball It's a pretty decent album. Not as punchy as In the Future, but still some of the best psychedelic hard rock you're likely to find this year. Constellations is probably my favourite. Favorite track: Mothers of the Sun.

Dillon Ethier Black Mountain: a rock band from the '70s whose mastery of the craft was so advanced, they accidentally tore a hole in spacetime, flinging them forward into the new millennium where their gifts can be properly understood and appreciated; erasing all memory of their former existence in the process.

Oddball is right that this isn't their best album (because it isn't In the Future) but it's a fine addition to their discography (and my collection) nonetheless.

Ed Martin It could perhaps stand to be trimmed down by a track or so, but when this album's on form it's absolutely astonishing.

about

The rock canon has many anti-heroes, Black Mountain being the latest. In the past, Can’s 'Tago Mago' established that the only rule in rock and roll is that there are no rules. Pink Floyd’s prodigious output in the 70s showed us that architecture can be cool, while unskilled laborers Black Sabbath demonstrated you can make a lot from not that much. Now Black Mountain teach us that you don’t have to be afraid of the past to move bravely into the future, defining what it is to be a classic rock band in the new millennium. 'IV' is an unapologetically ambitious record made by a group of musicians who are at the peak of their powers.
