Lift To Experience: The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads (Mute)

lift-to-experience

Released in 2001, Denton, Texas trio Lift To Experience’s sole album was an amazingly intense concept album that largely went unheard during the band’s brief lifespan. Subsequent years have rightly elevated it to be one of the best records you’ve never heard. This reissue cleans up the mix and offers bonus material, but the focus is still on the amazing ninety minute apocalyptic opus that still sounds like nothing you’ve heard.
