"Time Will Fuse It's Worth" is a well constructed album that however gets old pretty fast.

Kylesa is an American Stoner Metal band that has received much attention from the Stoner Metal community, later on in the first decade of the new millennium, with albums like “Static Tensions” and “Spiral Shadow”. Before the times of popularity, there was “Time Will Fuse It’s Worth”, an album positioned at the core of the band’s discography, being a follow-up to two more obscure and more average sounding albums.

Even though it shows significant improvement over Kylesa's past releases, the sound on "Time Will Fuse It's Worth" is far from being mature: By listening to the entire thing, it comes obvious that the band has not yet found its distinct style. The result is a cluster of Stoner/Sludge songs that sound standard and generic compared to other, groundbreaking material from the same genre. The slower moments give a little tease of uniqueness, but it's not long lasting.

Unfortunately the album, despite its relatively short running time, gets old pretty fast, it becomes easily predictable and boring. But good songs are here, especially in the case of “Between Silence and Sound”, the only track where there is a loud and clear burst of uniqueness. Other songs, like “Ignoring Anger”, “The Warning” and “What Becomes and End”, although having generic sound, are proof of great songwriting on behalf of the band. The presence of an intro, intermission and outro give the album an interesting impression of experiencing a mad-circus show, one at times good and at times frustratingly flat.

“Time Will Fuse It’s Worth”, despite its flaws, promises an overcoming of mediocrity on behalf of Kylesa (unlike, let’s admit it, a lot of albums). It turned out of course that Kylesa actually did step up with their game; today, they're one of the most respected Sludge Metal bands.
