Low leaves plenty of space and the tempos crawl, a unique sound from an era of stadium ready rock.

Author & Special Guests

Recently we asked our Pateron patrons to vote on our first album review for August from five albums released twenty years ago in August of 1996, and the winner was The Curtain Hits The Cast, the third overall by Low. Slowing the tempos to a glacial crawl is the sound Low is known for, leaving space and silence where most bands would try to fill space. Can they pull it off over the course of a full album? Tune in to find out.

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
