The group's ninth album - named not for its place in Trail of Dead's discography, but for a planet in Frank Herbert's Dune series - doesn't aim to re-create the fervor of The Century of Self, Tao of the Dead, or Lost Songs. Instead, Conrad Keely, Jason Reece, and company opt for a more introspective outlook, but even their personal crises are on a grand scale, taking on biblical proportions on "Jaded Apostles" and riffing on Sigmund Freud's The Ego and the Id on "The Lie Without a Liar. The Dragonfly Queen" turns IX's midtempo churn into a strength, delivering dark, jangly pop that feels better suited to the album's emotions; later, "Bus Lines" provides a similar intimacy despite its substantial length.
Let us know what you think of the Last.
In its expansive, hazy atmosphere, Trail of Dead lose nothing of their classically epic sound, and in Keely’s unusually introspective, intimate lyrics – the nostalgia of old travels, the simple joys of being with friends, homesickness – the band has crafted a song that doesn’t need to pull out all those studio stops to tug at the heart. In a way, IX is an odd inversion of the criticism that has so often attached itself to Trail of Dead. The robust rock songs fall flat, rarely achieving lift off from their rote, chugging origins, while even the band’s worst proggish impulses are neatly trimmed. that will you smile again song in particular.
