Levrikon After the relatively tight, restrained songs of Wilderness Heart, IV sees Black Mountain stretch way, way out again. There are no 17-minute songs, but a few hover around 10, and in general IV is much more psychedelic and experimental than anything that came before. Fantastic. Favorite track: Florian Saucer Attack.

Rui I've come to consider this a "classic" rock album. It will last forever. It has the heaviness of a Mountain and the dreamy wonder of Space. Cemetery Breeding is a haunting tragic love song. It will make you wish you were greaving and loving at the same time. Favorite track: Cemetery Breeding.

Safe As Milk "Cemetery Breeding" sounds so emotional that I honestly cannot tell if the lyrics is meant to be touching or funny. Favorite track: Florian Saucer Attack.

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.
