Album Review: In This Moment – Mother

A triumph of pomp and splendour from Maria Brink and In This Moment…

The only thing certain about In This Moment is that nothing is ever certain. Just like their mesmerising live shows, their music defies prediction and is all the more gripping for it. Thus, aside from Lay Me Down’s instant rush, Mother moves away from the bewitching, gospel-tinged rock of 2017’s Ritual.

Gushing rivers of guitar combine with electronics and strange musical patterns that take time to coalesce, but when they do it’s clear that Maria Brink’s unique band have scored another win, brilliantly balancing Mother’s fire and ice. The pyrotechnic cover of Queen’s We Will Rock You, featuring Lzzy Hale and Taylor Momsen, contrasts beautifully with Legacy’s emotive lilt, while As Above So Below is sharp-fanged with irony and angst.

It ends with an eerie interpretation of Mazzy Star’s Into Dust, with lingering notes of darkness that will make you want to hit repeat and fall in love with it over and over again.

Verdict: 4/5
