John Buehler Absolute stellar performance of this track. I find it incredibly moving to hear, and I will listen over and over again. Favorite track: Nowhere, Now Here (Live with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra).

Bryan Very little comes close to being as amazing as MONO backed by an orchestra.

The guitars and strings sing so lovely together. The percussion bits are remarkable. And the bass!

Halcyon > Ashes in the Snow > Exit in Darkness > Com(?) is a great way to wrap things up. “Nowhere, Now Here” is also very good. But I am left having to choose this album’s version of “Halcyon” as my favorite.

My head never stopped bobbing and banging. This is a musical masterpiece. I love this album. Favorite track: Halcyon (Live with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra).

ducky58 Amazing album. Such heaviness and at the same time delicate. Heaviness in a velvet glove. Favorite track: Com(?) (Live with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra).

about

For two decades, MONO have defined and refined a kind of orchestral rock that is as emotional as it is experimental. Their 10 studio albums over those 20 years have established MONO as what Pitchfork described as “one of the most distinctive bands of the 21st Century.” Meanwhile, their live concerts are typically more subdued in instrumentation – and more supercharged in volume and voltage. Rarely is there the opportunity to combine those two experiences. In their 20-year history as a band, MONO have presented no more than a half-dozen live concerts featuring the support of an orchestra. Such events are not only unusual – they are also unforgettable.



Beyond the Past • Live in London with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra documents MONO’s extraordinary performance from the Beyond the Past event that celebrated the band’s 20th anniversary, which took place at the historic Barbican Centre in London, England on December 14, 2019. For that once-in-a-lifetime event, MONO selected a memorable lineup of old and new friends, including fellow Japanese underground icons, Boris and Envy, as well as French post-metal legends, Alcest, and UK collaborators A.A. Williams and Jo Quail. The event culminated with MONO performing with The Platinum Anniversary Orchestra, featuring National Youth String Orchestra to a rapt, sold-out audience of 2,000.


Playing through a two-hour set that touches on the band’s entire history, the sheer euphoria and dynamic resonance that engulfed the massive crowd was captured in brilliant detail by MONO’s live sound engineer, Matt Cook. Meticulously mastered by Bob Weston and presented here in its entire two-hour glory, Beyond the Past is one of the most essential MONO recordings. Packaged in a triple gatefold with accompanying 40-page photo book, this is the rare document of an event that is an event in and of itself.
