4 stars Loss of a Child for me is neither a Post-Rock band nor what one would normally consider a Prog-Rock band, yet they do push boundaries and play instrumental music. Adam and Eve certainly isn't a simple or easy listen first off, it revels in noise and layers which take many listens before you distinguish the beauty lying underneath. The melodies of the many instruments blend together, the music constantly moves forward ignoring simple repetition which plague most post- and prog-rock bands and can often dissuade listeners who want a simple, instant musical experience to play in the background whilst performing some other activity. Put Adam and Eve on loudly and concentrate on the music, headphones if you want the clarity of every instrument. Listen to one guitarist play in 3/4 time whilst another plays in 5/4 and the pianist and drummer play in 4/4, allowing the instruments to create off-beat melodic passages which continually move - time changes rarely seen outside the mathcore scene and even those bands rarely layer instruments in different time signatures.

Adam and Eve is a completely original release if giving time and, along with the latest releases from 65daysofstatic, Russian Circles and Dillinger Escape Plan, shows that music is moving forward and showing that there can be depth and emotion within music. This is one of my favourite releases and has rarely left my stereo since I was recommended it. And I'm still discovering new segments every time. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because I think Loss of a Child will produce even better in the future.
