Schizoid Man
5 stars 5 stars. In the Experimental/Post Rock genre these guys are masters.

Explosions in the Sky is another excellent band working the same general area but their overall sound is less dynamic, more reserved and contemplative than God is an Astronaut's.

Now, to the album.

I like this album better than their first, "The End of the Beginning". Though there really isn't that noticeable of a difference between them, "All is Violent, All is Bright" just seems to have a more cohesive and accomplished feel.

The music is extremely lyrical but also extremely dynamic. It holds my attention effortlessly.

The vocals do not consist of words but sung feelings which can be equally, if not more, evocative.

There is no fat in this album. Each composition is well conceived, arranged and played. The sound/production is excellent as well.

Personal favorites are "Fire Flies and Empty Skies", "A Deafening Distance" and "Remembrance Day".

Schizoid Man | 5/5 |
