NewEARS Album Of The Month"'Broken But Still Standing', Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate's third album, is a science/science-fiction themed concept album. It follows the story of human evolution, from LUCA, the last universal common ancestor of all current life on earth, via Lucy, one of the possible precursors of our species, to conflict and eventual symbiosis with artificial intelligences. The general theme of the album is that life has progressed by forming coalitions, whether between the primitive cells that engulfed each other to become the cell and the mitochondria (the power stations of the cell), between individuals to form communities, or between different forms of life in the future.
Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate -
Broken But Still Standing
'Broken But Still Standing' is a brilliantly perceptive and original work of art that enthralls with every listen. Taken as a whole it is an utterly immersive musical experience that will captivate and enlighten the listener, Hats Off Gentlemen Its Adequate has to be one of the most creative and innovative artists out there today." m-Pr
Essential Track: "There's nostalgia in spades about 'Last Man On The Moon', a wistful, almost melancholy song that gets under your skin with its elegant music and heartfelt vocals, especially the excellent harmonies between the male and female voices on the captivating chorus. Thoughtful and yet somehow forlorn, it's a great track with a wonderfully plaintive and meandering guitar solo that leads you on a reflective musical journey." m-PR

The seventh record by Godspeed You! Black Emperor was released 22 September 2017 on Constellation.
"Luciferian Towers" was recorded during the winter of 2016/2017 at Montreal's Hotel2Tango, with Greg Norman once again engineering and co-producing (as he did on the band's previous album 'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress').
The music on "Luciferian Towers'" took shape over the past two years, amidst GYBE's collaborative performances with the Holy Body Tattoo dance company's monumental, and spurred by the commissioning of new compositions memorializing the 100th anniversary of the WWI Battle of Messines, which premiered at a live concert event on the site of the massacre at Heuvelland, Belgium this past June.
"Luciferian Towers" is Godspeed's third album since the group's "reunion" in 2011 and their second consecutive single LP-length record (following three double-album releases in 2000, 2002 and 2012).
