Moments are littered all throughout Terribly Well when Sightings resemble the band they were 10 years ago. Yet to frame the album as a return-to-roots affair would be reductive. Rather, the New York trio pours the bludgeoning force unique to their earliest releases into the kind of wildly intricate compositions that have been their bread and butter in more recent years. In other words, they have produced a style of noise-rock aesthetic that is both primal and highly evolved. To hear them pull off this demanding aesthetic in sublime fashion, go straight to "Mute's Retreat" or "Bundled."
