Re: Emperor Tomato Ketchup - clearly the best!

Great analysis by Stereo Mouse.
I totally agree with what you pointed out.
The sound of the guitars is trully excellent (unlike on some parts of CHEMICAL CHORDS for example) and they do blend fantastically well with the strings.
This album was mixed really really well, with punch, warmth and space all at the same time.
The end of SLOW FAST HAZEL sends shivers down my spine everytime I hear it, but you haven't mentioned a key element of that final crescendo: the distorted organ.
So many fantastic moments: METRONOMIC UNDERGROUND, CYBELE'S REVERIE, SPARK PLUG, PERCOLATOR...almost every song is a classic.
My own favorite is a track that very seldom receives praise: MONSTRE SACRE. Beautifully sad and poignant.
Again, the guitars are terrific.
Like they are on TOMORROW IS ALREADY HERE which is pure genius.
One of their best albums.
