Friday Tunes: Converge ‘You Fail Me’

February 14, 2014

One way to counteract that jovial Valentine’s Day nonsense is to stick a bit of Converge on. Seriously, this shit slays. I urge you to dig out their fifth studio LP ‘You Fail Me’ released all the way back in 2004 (damn I’m old). Released three years after their ground-breaking ‘Jane Doe’ LP, this album was always going to come under intense scrutiny. Released to a somewhat muted response from those expecting ‘Jane Doe: 2’, this album nonetheless endures as one of my favourites from the Massachusetts-based band to this day. I’ve always been a huge fan of Kurt Ballou’s guitar work and I think this album contains some of his most impressive fretwork.
