5 stars Here's an example of a masterpiece. All the album has excelent cohesion an it's excelently structured without recurring much to the standards.

First breath after coma : This track touched me the first time i listened to it. It's really emotional and does real emphasis in each moment, each silence is worth as a silence, and each (relativity) fast part is worth as what it is. 5 stars.

The Only Moment We Were Alone : It's description wouldn't be very different to the one of the previous track. The main difference is that TOMWWA is more layered and works out more the harmonies. Explosions in the sky accomplish this and makes it another jewel of these record. 5 stars.

Memorial : Memorial does sound like a memorial. It might sound stupid, but it sounds like a song of loss, quite epic (talking about the mood, not the length), melancholic as EITS always was. 4 stars.

Six days at the bottom of the ocean : This track is clearly divided into two. a very long but intresting spacey section, and a fast and awaken section. Both are good, but this track is clearly the less inspired.

Your hand in mine : Fantastic closure for this excelent album. As the second track, it's quite layered and makes a really good effect. Beautifull song. 4.5 stars.

5+5+4+3+4.5 / 5 = 4.3

I'll rate it 4 stars although 5 stars wouldn't be ridiculus.

Revan | 5/5 |
