Prog Reviewer
5 stars For their first effort, BR had more of a mix of Don Caballero's math rock into the band's newfound love of post. The title track and opener is some of the best math of its year, for one. Immediately after, with "Disaster of The Week", we lean heavily on post. The album proceeds as such, a math track and then a post track. "Childhood Sun" is another stick out track, with its use of electronics as the driving beat in a post track. Nothing long, but still excellent. Ellsworth and Matthews play guitar as wonderfully as ever in both styles, and original drummer Kearn does as well as later drummer Doyle in supporting the music. A masterpiece right out of the gate for Pittsburgh's post math champions, this and all their albums are unique and enjoyable.
