2 stars The band Athelstone has very good moments in their debut album The Quiet Before The Storm, in contains only three tracks, two are very long. What I like about the album is the variation you hear within the same songs, which are not repetitive, they have jazzy elements as well as experimentation. I didn't like the next points, 1) the guitar in many cases sounds like low quality, it seems the guitar player didn't pay attention to the sound or the sounds to be used 2) the two songs that are long tend to be repetitive in structure, i.e. predictable, and it makes it something difficult to stand the complete song. It works good as background music but as well as some members have mentioned, they have potentiality for more!
