This, A Sun Amissa’s second LP, is a superb symphonic piece, very much like a Rhys Chatham bliss-out and also similar to The Flowers of Hell’s magnificent ‘0’ from a few years back. We get two long tracks, each around 15 minutes. the band’s best work to date, the final four minutes its best segment. It’s post-rock, it’s jazz, it’s modern composition; it’s the gnarled mirror image of the band’s previous work, a bold experiment that few would attempt. We admire A-Sun Amissa for choosing the road less traveled.

A Sun-Amissa have produced a well-crafted album, where minimal changes in noise, texture and ineraction win out over sonic expressions and bombast. Though the album can at times be an uneasy listen and there is probably a need for a few more surprises and turns to take A Sun-Amissa out of their (un)comfort zone and make the album a truly great release, You Stood Up for Victory We Stood Up for Less is a worthy addition to the impressive Gizeh Records catalogue.
