5.0 out of 5 stars Such a sweet release. Worth your time. Jan. 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
... This is a great album. So great that I'm sure someone will shred it in the months to come. The great ones always get slammed eventually. Don't be fooled, though. This is great music.
I bought this album because I had never heard of Hood and I do like cLOUDDEAD. I have to thank cLOUDDEAD once again for the exposure to this group.
Is it IDM? Is it post-rock? What is it? It's great. That's what it is. Hood have taken many components of styles and melted them into an incredible music experience. It works very well. On songs like "Lines Low To Frozen Ground" we get a bit of laid back jazzy sounds with an almost Cranberries vocal in the background. With "Branches Bare" (my favorite) you'll experience some of the grooviest post-rock I've heard yet.
The bottom line is that these guys will definately be up and coming with this release. The reason I say with this album is that they are still pretty obscure, yet they have released five albums to date.
Do yourself a favor and check this album out. Try cLOUDDEAD while your at it. They're hip-hop, but not like you'd think. These artists are doing some special work and deserve your time. Again, this is all my opinion, but I hope you enjoy this disc as much as I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album earns that fifth star Oct. 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
The first few times I heard this album, I wasn't quite feeling it. It was cool, but I'd stop paying attention around track seven.
I then started listening to this album with headphones at night. Now, this is one of my favorite albums. There is lots of stuff in this music that needs a lot of attention in order to absorb. For example, "I Can't Find My Brittle Youth" sounds like an excellent pop/rock song when listened to casually. But when you listen with headphones and no distractions, you hear a wild electronic drum beat rumbling underneath that truly makes this song stand out. I especially liked "You Show No Emotion at All" for its contrast of sound. A mix of electronic sounds and beats with traditional, organic instruments creates an sound that is beautiful and modern. It's like an oil painting with laminated pictures of space ships taped on.

As the other reviewers point out this is not a straight foward single genre album. It mixes styles akin to Radiohead's ''Kid A'', gloomy indie style vocals and experimental hip-hop.
I bought this on the same day i got B.R.M.C and Preston School of Industry and i listened to Hood after listening to those. It really took me back and made me listen in depth (whereas the others struggled to take a hold on the listener, not that they weren't anygood.)
Easily the best song on this album has to be track 3, while the most likely single is track 6. Tracks 1, 2, 4 and 10 also are very very good however tracks 5, 7 and 8 are an unstructured mess and would fit into KID A easily. This 'underground' band really are different and worth a listen.
Avoid if you like the simple easy to comprehend mainstream sounds of bands like the Stereophonics and Travis.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW July 17 2002
Format:Audio CD
I thought that hood had hit their peak of excellence with 1998's "rustic houses, forlorn valleys" but this exceeds even that mournful, intimate, gorgeous and groundbreaking album. this album is even more innovative, exploring ambient, slowcore, postpunk, and other select genres to create an extremely emotional, expressive, and melancholic work. samples, beats, electronic blips melded with more organic instruments seems to emphasize the album's theme of slogging through a cold world. lyrics like "do you ever lie awake at night and think about your life and all your friends who died..or do you even think at all?" (or something close to this) adds to the despondency. this is a perfect album for those who are both sensitive and intelligent, perfect for those who loathe both the britneys and the strokes of the world.
