Millions Now Living Will Never Die


Thrill Jockey

Tortoise was already an album and remix collection in by the release of Millions Now Living Will Never Die, but whether it was the addition of Slint veteran David Pajo to the lineup or the resultant attention due to that move and more, it became their underground breakthrough effort, as well as gaining greater attention for Chicago’s wider experimental scene as a whole. The opening track “Djed,” a gently propulsive melange of stylistic elements that took up half the album’s length, rapidly became a standard, with others like “Glass Museum” not far behind.
