3 stars Predictible. Maybe this is the best word to describe September Malevolence first album. Is not a bad album but you can find so many inffluences that after the first minute of every song you can predict the next section.

As I said, is not a bad album. In fact is very well arranged, is floating and almost magical and has some brilliant guitar sections. The problem is that you always think "I heard this before... but I don't remember where or when". From Explosions in the Sky to Tortoise (specially on guitar work), from GYBE (the reluctant crescendos) to Bark Psychosis (because the few vocals that appears on two of the seven songs of the album), September Malevolence seems to take those elements to make a new mixture but the experiment doesn't work totally.

Anyway, the last song of the album, Nobody Noticed the Fire, is a solid epic build on all these elements and most of the time works really great resuming all the characteristics of this band: athmospherical rhythmical guitar sections a la EitS, exploding crescendos, a nostalgic piano section and fluid and harmonic rhythmical changes. But not enough to make a great album.

Fans of EitS stuff will be delighted by this album... And just beacuse I really enjoy EitS music give to SM debut album 3*...
