Album Review: Colin Stetson - All This I Do For Glory

Album Review: Colin Stetson - All This I Do For Glory

"The deeper into the song we seem to get, the higher we’re climbing; Stetson’s quietly clicking keys telling us of even tougher topography, while the strained voice could be just the wind in our ears, or could be one of the wolves signalling to its pack that there’s a lost wanderer in their midst that looks like dinner. By the time Stetson’s keys are clomping like an actual percussionist, and the wolves are howling in unison, bearing down on you, you know it’s time to turn tail and run, with Stetson’s clamouring amalgamation of noise nipping at your behind all the way to relative safety."

- I wrote a very impressionistic review of virtuoso sax player Colin Stetson's latest release, All This I Do For Glory; have a read over on The 405.
