Dusting Off a Gem #3: Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band's Horses in the Sky, a Review

Across six tracks and a run-time just under an hour, Horses in the Sky has always been an album that I've held dear. The musicianship is as superb at dynamics as always with this group of musicians, and the bold, broken style crooning from Efrim here has always been one of my favorite vocal performances.

It's a damaged album, and it's a broken album. It's also a piece of beautiful art that's somehow both frail and powerful simultaneously. First released in March of 2005, Horses in the Sky feels as ahead of its time now as it did then and serves as a true journey to experience and if you have failed to take that trip in a while, or never at all, I strongly recommend you fix that mistake now and enjoy the view.
