5 stars first of all I am astonished that only a few people gave reviews to this great band from ireland. I know God Is An Astronaut only for 6 weeks, but from this time on I am addicted to their music. all their 3 albums are on the same high level same as the ep from 2006.

God Is An Astronaut sounds sometimes like explosions in the sky or like some instrumental parts from porcupine tree (untitled, buying new soul). Far from Refuge is to my opinion the best album from GIAA and it is my 2007 favourite album beside Fear of a blank planet from Porcupine Tree and Night from Gazpacho.

I prefer to hear Far From Refuge from the end to the beginning and I like the optimistic, melancholic atmosphere and the different moments GIAA music affects my heart. For me the whole album is close to perfect, but my favourite songs are: Far from Refuge, New Year's end and Beyond the dying lights.
