The four years ThisQuietArmy spent on their new album were worth it. As to prove their creativity, "Resurgence" comes including a bonus CD. So one can prepare oneself for about two hours of new material from the Canadian Shoegazers. With "Rebirth", "Revival" and "Renaissance" they start their work with a song bundle between Post- and Hawkwind-Spacerock, which shifts the priorities towards psychedelic. Later on, she takes to the lowlands of ambient to dark drones, while the rock aspect remains intact thanks to dense guitar sounds. The final "Gone To The Universe" unstoppably escalates to a My-Bloody-Valentine-Power-Postpop-Track with a scammed melody. The band from Montreal has also noticed the hit appeal slumbering in this song, as this song appears again on CD 2 as a radio edit. On this disc it gets really exciting again: with Godspeed's chamber rock ("Ballad Of A Shepherdness") and 20-minute dronerock ("The Cold Vacancy").
