If These Trees Could Talk are back with another album, another hour of noble, tragic, and cinematic post-metal. There is nothing radically new, no startling changes, but this is better, and I think it is largely because the production is improved. The Ohio band's slow, simple, layered sound here is deep, rich, and reverberant, like a cathedral. The cathedral of the Earth, perhaps, given that the central theme of the band is climate change and the environmental crisis. Despite no vocals or lyrics, that theme has always been clear from the band's name, from the names of the songs, and from the graphics. Tragedy is not enough, we also need to be angry, and to translate our compassion and anger into effective action. That's my reservation about ITTCT's music. But on its own terms, it sounds great. It's not a suitable soundtrack for activism, but perhaps the band's cinematic sound can be used for actual soundtracks, like Explosions in the Sky.
