4 stars Wow, wasn't really expecting anything from Hibernal's debut album The Machine (2013). It is so that it took me one year to actually listen to it!

This Australian one-man band (Mark Healy) is something to pay attention to. It's a mix of calm Progressive Rock with edger parts and a bit of Post Rock and Ambient music that tells a very intriguing story based on the short story called Welcome To The Machine by Mark Healy himself.

I always liked this kind of telling stories albums, and that's what The Machine (2013) is, there's no vocals on it really, just a narration of facts and a very interesting music that passes smoothly as we wait for the end of the story.

The tale is about a man working in a company that little by little becomes a machine as he's promoted, a sci-fi tale that, in a way, is not that far away from reality.

After this one I'm really curious about his new album Replacements (2014)!

Totally woeth to check it:
