The Besnard Lakes – A Coliseum Complex Museum

The Besnard Lakes’ new album sounds just as the title suggests: A Coliseum Complex Museum. As they have proven over their last four records, the Montreal quartet has a tendency to make grandiose symphonies and sweeping musical suites. There’s no question that this type of songwriting comes easy for Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas; they find themselves most comfortable making epics that strive for the stature of Dark Side of the Moon. But while they have found a sound that is truly their own, A Coliseum Complex Museum proves that they feel far too comfortable in it.
