4 stars Oceansize's Frames finds the band following an approach reminiscent of early Porcupine Tree - blending classic space rock textures with techniques and motifs drawn from modern indie rock. Here, they select harder-edged precedents from both traditions, yielding an album prone to both hardcore trippy excursions and snarling rants. Add in some influence from the seedier side of post-rock, and what you end up with is a modern-day New Prog trip which has something to offer listeners of all generations. If you can, snag a version with Voorhees on it, which is a somewhat superior album closer to The Frame (to the point where I'm amazed it was relegated to the status of bonus track).
