      Conqueror is the 2nd album by Welsh band Jesu, released in early 2007 - it was touted as something a little bit different. Jesu play ambient rock or sometimes what is known as drone metal, basically ambient music with powerful guitars. Not at all my type of thing as I simply don't have much time for ambient genres, preferring upbeat and lively stuff instead.

      The vocals are whiney, the music tedious, banging along at a pace which would even seem tortoiseworthy to the dopiest of people and just when you think the track might spruce itself up, it normally calms down. It has the same miserableness as Coldplay and Radiohead, two bands I'm not particularly keen on - particularly the former but I have to say that Jesu make them look like lively souls.

      I've listened through the whole album and I can't pick a song which is better or worse because they basically all sound the same to me. There may be something here for a fan of ambient music but there's nothing here for me!
      Justin Broadrick who programmes as well as being capable of playing all the instruments is undoubtedly talented but this is too depressing and lacks variation.

      7. "Mother Earth" - 7:16
      8. "Stanlow" - 5:58
