The inmediate follow up to "Black Earth" comes in separate ways.
Although still condensing dense fumes of smoke landscapes a la Dashiel Hammett with a Badalamenti influenced Jazz Noir is not as rhytmically influenced as his predecessor and less dark too.
Here comes a jazz with post rock usage (the sound and cadence reminds me of Bark Psychosis) with the metronome counting at the most slow speed possible but not so by stepping into "funeral" or "doom" influenced music as they did previously. This is probably not that good since the band may be good and knows how to play and when to hit with the compositions, but there is nothing really innovative or original here anymore.
Previous album was a dismembering from the cadence of Doom metal and a heavy use of a variant of jazz with atmospheric elemments that could be easily traced to Badalamenti in his more solid works,the atmospheric elemments are still preserved here but the morbid side was softened a lot (even the titles follow this line). Never forget the phormula that made you famous and don't try to be what you are not.
This is an average jazz-post rock influenced band. Which simply makes it severely overrated. Fumes out.

So, just another great "horror-jazz" album from "Bohren & Der Club Of Gore". IMHO, nearly as great as their "Black Earth". May be, a 'lill bit less dark and heavy... Not so furious. But, is this minus? :) The music in some pieces strongly reminds of some tracks from "Black Earth", but it is heard not as self-repeating, but as additions or developing of certain moods and rhythms. Very athmospheric and rich and jazzy. Several tracks could be great soundtrack to a romantic noire suspense movie. :) No doubts, reco!
