4 stars Miasma first (and so far only) album is a pleasant surprise and while all three members of Guapo are playing in Miasma, this doesn't sound one bit similar at first glance, even once aware of the fact, you may pick out some common musical traits to both formations (their most Post Rock moments). While Ledden (who's yet to record with Guapo) and Smith are on their respected instruments, O'Sullivan (who is the main inspiration behind Guapo's second career) is not playing his usual keyboards, but handling the guitar, while the keyboards are played by a drummer. One of the most prominent instruments is Sara Hubrich's viola, which often gets doubled by O'Sullivan's harmonium.

In general, this album have relatively short tracks (compared to Guapo's extended ones), where the acoustic ambiance gives the album an ethnic folk feel, but I'd rather think of this album of an Avant-prog album. I'd like to refer you to my buddy Chris (Syzygy)'s excellent review, for I am unable to describe better the feel of the album.

From Miriodor to Debile Menthol, passing thru Alamaailman Vasarat, with slight dissonant RIO traits (early-UZ) and an Eastern European ethnic feel (In The Labyrinth or Ensemble Nimbus), Miasma's debut album is certainly one of the better and essential album to discover what PA means with Avant-prog.
