Fantastic album and a joy to hear on vinyl but the condition of the Gustaff vinyl pressing from leaves much more to be desired. Terrible scratches on Side A. Reply Notify me 4 Helpful.

A casual glance at the brooding and beautiful cover art of Treny might lead to the assumption that it's either an elegant goth/folk construction or a post-black metal valentine (or both). As it happens that's probably not too far off a description in any event, since Jacaszek's delicate string arrangements and keening vocals set in counterpoint to the compressed rushes of electronic swells and sighs - almost like a computer with stuttering breathing - are aiming at a new kind of fusion with well established roots.
The beauty of this album lies in its sadness and the poignant sorrow it emanates from every pore. Oxymoronically, however, it is not depressing in the slightest. Treny resounds with positive emotion; awe and bewilderment at existence, not suicidal thoughts. Like Swans, it’s emotive music for emotive people who aren’t emo, people who don’t like bad clothes and fringes and self harming. On second thought, it isn’t Sputnik music at all.
The Laments (also Lamentations or Threnodies; Polish: Treny) are a series of nineteen threnodies (elegies) by Jan Kochanowski. Written in Polish and published in 1580, they are a highlight of Polish Renaissance literature, and one of Kochanowski's signature achievements. Jan Kochanowski was the greatest Polish poet and the greatest Slavic poet prior to the 19th century, when this title passed to Adam Mickiewicz.
