3 stars The Dear Hunter do the indie prog thing with grandiose ambition on this first concept album, presented as the start of an extremely long rock opera. There's some Radioheadisms sprinkled here and there about the shop but to my ears they mostly remind me of an alternate take on the Decemberists, if you took out the folk influences and replaced them with classical - there's the same tendency towards whimsical cabaret, the same vocal playfulness, and the same hit and miss pattern when it comes to retaining my attention. It's competent stuff, and Casey Crescenzo and family clearly aren't short on talent, but they don't quite weave together their indie rock-prog blend tightly enough to save this from feeling patchy.
Warthur | 3/5 |
