Mono at their absolute best. This record is incredible. Cinematic is a bit of an understatement - extremely emotional and true to the Mono style of post-rock music. No one can do it as good as these guys.

One absolutely incredible release. I don't listen to their regular albums that often - but this live record I have on all the time. It is just beautiful. I know most will say it is epic - but I find it to be more romantic than anything. I'm not sure music can become more listenable than it does on Side C.

Not many live sets are covered on here... But then again, not many artists we cover release their music as live sets. Thanks to Temporary Residence Limited for organizing a concert in New York City for MONO, celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band. Here is a collection of some of our favorite MONO tracks, as well as selections from their latest album, Hymn to the Immortal Wind, performed live with a 24-piece orchestra, featuring excellent recording and quality mixing by Matt Bayles (Mastadon, ISIS, Minus The Bear). The Tokyo based instrumental post-rock group, in collaboration with the esteemed Wordless Music Orchestra, captured all of my favorite moments, compiling a "best of MONO" album, if you will, into a stunning performance, with all of its soaring, moody, and dramatic quality. The only thing that's missing from this album is the sound of my own applause. I really wish I was there! To make up for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, the label has published this release with a bonus DVD, documenting the entire 90-minute performance. In addition, you may obtain this album as a limited 3xLP release (DVD included as well). This is an absolute must for all MONO fans.
