Rope : Heresy, And Then Nothing But Tears

If you're attracted to the thought of hearing the musical counterpart of being trapped in a David Lynch film, then Rope is the band for you. There is no structure. There is nothing that indicates that you're actually listening to a song, and there is nothing that tells you that you've moved on to the next track.

There are guitars, sudden drum fills, abstract noises, saxophones, whispered lyrics, and sudden outbursts. This release contains a lot of material, but nothing that I'm capable of understanding. It all sounds improvised, and my guess would be that Rope is trying to focus on creating a certain atmosphere instead of anything that you will remember as a song.

To my ears, it partly sounds like giving a group of people who have never played music before an intrument of their choice to go berserk on. Very chaotic! To be honest, I don't know anything about this kind of music. I'm not qualified to say if it's good or not.
