4 stars In these muddy, impending doom, drone-like, shoegaze, noisy, white noisy, trashy and snary, old radio like environments which could simply turn out to sound anonymous due to the fact that all these "musical elements" are a constant in most Post Rock/Mathers bands, you really have to watch out for "unique" proposals to distinguish one from the other.

Well, texan band "This Will Destroy You" brings some new exciting and attractive cards to this Prog sub genre's table in this, 2014, "Another Language". Let me start with its music composition which travels from chaos to peace with an astounding, yet raw, clarity. Its quirky, perfectly built melody lines outstand even among the most explosive abstract sections, offering simultaneous and opposite musical perspectives, taken to highly heavy bombastic altitudes and crash landing peacefully and beautifully by its good and attractive songwriting.

As such everything sounds perfect, but at the end of the day, the inherent musical elements of this style will hardly be distinguishable among the upcoming and ongoing Post Rock/Math Rock bands and crowds, if not for its brilliant songwriting, song selection and disposition which shines all along this dirty and washed out road.

****4 PA stars.
