Album Review

Mono – “Gone – a Collection of Eps 2000-2007 ” – [Human Highway]

cinder   10/17/2007   A Library, CD

A great chronolocigal collection of some of Mono’s
rarer and out-of-print non-album tracks from
2000-2007. Shorter quieter tracks, longer anthemic
tracks. Moody, instrumental, beautiful, emotional,
maturity. It’s like listening to violent waves
crashing against each other in the darkest storm,
before calming down to glassy ripples in the glowing
sun. Strings and additional instruments start to kick
in halfway through the release. Track 2 has a
left-right craziness the last half of the piece,
something a little different from the band. Vocals in
Italian on ‘Black Rain’ by Giovanna Cacciola. Track 9
has quite the classical sound. All pieces were
remastered from original tapes. This band always melts
my heart.
