Wow, that might sound like a pretty harsh question, no? Well, it is not. This is not a post-rock album, this is a modern classical album where piano and strings are being enhanced by electronic percussion and a beautiful atmosphere. This stuff is aiming directly for the thrones of people like Olafur Arnalds and Bersarin Quartett and with the right people behind him, We Deserve This could be playing big jazz and ambient festivals soon.
Now, don't get me wrong. This is definitely something that will please fans of Mono and Godspeed! You Black Emperor but I would never hesitate to recommend this to fans of Nils Frahm or Sebastian Plano or even Boards Of Canada. With the piano as central element, a trip-hop resembling set of beats and loads of cinematic soundscapes, We Deserve This managed to create something that convincingly crosses the borders between genres.
My personal favorites here are 'Fusion', 'Triangle' and closer 'Welcome Dear Monument', but that's a tough decision to make. In fact, I much more prefer to play the entire album, often a few times in a row. There is not a lot of difference between the tracks, which are all made out of similar elements, which makes it perfect for concept-listening. Concept-listening is a technique where the album is becoming a part of everyday activities, blending in perfectly with whatever I do, and this album certainly is good enough to do that.
