3 stars A marked improvement.

This is actually my preferred EITS album because of the rawer feel the album has to it, while still being a great improvement from the first album. I also feel it has a bit more variation from The Earth... Drums are certainly more forward in the mix here, and can be noticed throughout much of the record.

Their are many dynamics in play here, and while remaining relatively simple and subtle, their is a distinct quality and feeling as a result of the dynamics (which weren't really present on the first album). The tracks tend to build from a soft, genial nature towards more chaos at the ends when the concept is fully realized (a trademark of the genre). So, if you don't like a track, give it time to develop before hitting the "skip" button. As such, it makes it increasingly difficult to merely "sample" a section of the work as it is all essential to the atmosphere of the music.

The latter part of the album is more "aggressive" if you will in demeanor, overlapping itself into post-metal terminology. This is certainly an album more suited for younger fans or for more "rock" fans as it lacks many of the trademarks associated with the prog/symphonic prog genre. If you give it time, however, it can be a very engaging experience.
