4 stars One Time for All Time is a very diverse and experimental album, drawing its influences from post rock, metal, math rock, and electronica, all strung together with an impressive musical prowess. This mostly instrumental album is comprised of relatively short blasts of sonic outbursts. The drums go all out on this album, even during the quieter moments. Most people who haven't heard much of the post-rock genre tend to complain that the music is too sparse and ambient. This is certainly not the case with 65daysofstatic. What sets this album apart from the typical post rock fare is strong electronic elements, something that is certainly welcome in their music. That being said, the music is mostly guitar-driven. The songs are very melodic and show a resemblance to the heavier post rock bands such as Pelican as well as Mogwai. The break-beat drums are similar to something from Aphex Twin's output. The production is certainly tight enough to match all of the various sounds being produced at once. In fact, I rarely notice production value, but on this album it is strikingly good. It's not much of a stretch to say that some tracks might even be a wee bit danceable.

One of my favorite tracks is the epic opener, "Drove Through Ghosts to Get Here." It contains all of the elements that make this album an excellent addition to a progressive rock collection, the excellent use of pacing and timbre along with great instrumental melody. This album is recommended any fan of post-rock, or fans who are frustrated with the lack of energy in post rock. This album delivers great musicianship, great sound quality, and an experimental edge which most prog fans will certainly enjoy.
