5 stars Casey, the mastermind of this project, left the indie/experimental/post-hardcore outfit The Receiving End of Sirens, who I hold in high regards as one of those bands that plays a style of music that I generally despise in such a way that it is actually good music (proof that all music has the capability of being high quality, some genres are just unfortunate to house few if any bands who want to do anything with that sound). I heard a few clips and I knew I was going to love this group. After hearing this album, my anticipation proved accurate and then some. What we have here is a similar melodic yet edgy approach to the vocals as The Receiving End of Sirens with more layers, harmonies and background work. Then the music is like a symphonic, dramatic rock opera that works in rhythms and ethereal soundscapes characteristic of bands like The Mars Volta and Circa Survive. It is a fantastic blend of styles. It's creative, intelligent and yet very accessible. The Dear Hunter is now a leading force in modern progressive music, and as soon as you have the chance, you should check them out.
