4 stars Defying classification and making me wonder if these guys are truly post-rock or just eclectic, MILLIONS NOW LIVING WILL NEVER DIE is indeed a magnificent piece of work which catapulted TORTOISE into the consciousness of post-rock lovers and the music world in general. They are truly unique and this 2nd album will leave you wondering what you just heard leaving trails of post-rock, krautrock, electronica, minalmist or jazz. The truth is that they are all of the above only strewn together in a way that is simultaneously pleasant and unexpected.

This album has a heavy bass which is most commonly heard in hip hop but in this context it adds a nice sub-sound that makes your speakers resonate in a most pleasant way. Basically all I can say about this album is that it delivers in a most satisfying way. It takes you somewhere completely unexpected and makes you wonder what you just listened to. Repeated listenings only add a sense of appreciation as they make you admire the mixings of styles that made this particular album come into fruition. I can totally understand why this album is considered one of the cornerstones of post-rock following the footsteps of Talk Talk. Although it seems like it's in a category of its own, it really does progress the post-rock sound by adding a myriad of influences. Highly recommended.
