YMS are a math-rock band. By saying this, I mean they’re less keen on melodies and more occupied with complex signatures and shifting moods. There are some wonderful places (like coda in “A Little Late”) that are easy to whistle along, but there are also wild tracks like “Recovery Speak” (insane Zorn-like beginning and almost post-rocky down-tempo coda). Comparable to late OCEANSIZE, early DREDG and early THE MARS VOLTA, YMS nevertheless follow their own path. It’s a hard fish to swallow, but it’s worthy of it. I would hardly call this album favourite, but it has its moments, and some of them are extremely wonderful. Recommended for math-rockers and Modern proggers, a desirable addition to your collections!
