4 stars It's really difficult to try to classify Tuna Laguna as just a post rock band because the long list of styles that you'll find along the 10 tracks of this album. Perhaps the post rock rhythmical structures are present all the time, the psychedelic, some metalish moments, atmospherical sections and even a little bit of Zappa appears along this brilliant series of instrumental songs.

The opener is "My Lunar Boots", which interposes different melodic sections to build a very inetersting track that moves between a catchy melody and strong and complex rock sections which reminds me some Gastr del Sol albums. Into my favorites of this album, got to pick "Tidal Eddies" because the strong rhythmical base and the attmept to mix some "classic" post rock wirh psychedelic elements in a weird experiment that really works!

"Arrival of the Rhino" it's maybe the more hard, dark and metal-ish song of the album but doesn't lose the post rock base that build a solid and hard rhythmical base. "The Insignificant Grape" is a kind of pause at the middle of the album, a quiet and floating instrumental which leads to another great song of the album: "Feather Beats" another track that reminds me some Gastr del Sol and Tortoise early stuff but TL add their own an particular ingredients to turn that song into a really funny musical journey.

The album closes with another two great pieces: "Barry on Safari" and "That's Where We're at". Both songs has the mentioned elements and gives a real good ending to this underrated album that deserves to be into the colection of every average post rock fan... 4*
