4 stars Amazing.

Thsi time GREGOR SAMSA are less Post-Rock influenced (at least they aren't carrying their influences on their sleeves). 'Rest' has more common with Dream Pop and Shoegaze (well, GS fall into this category too, since first EPs of them). This is when silence means more than the sound itslef, and it reminds me so good of my beloved late TALK TALK. For example, 'The Adolescent' (warm one) and 'Abutting, Dismantling' (cold one) are bulit around simple melodies, supplied with dreamy female and male vocals (Nikki and Champ), they flow easily, unfolding until the end, without those usual Post-Rock crescendoes and dozen guitars playing the same climax. Uplifting and optimistic, music on 'Rest' is still dark and moody, even sad...but heart-illuminating in the same time. For those who likes some Slowcore or Dream Pop thrown in Post-Rock and for all late TALK TALK fans 'Rest' may be the best release of this year sp far. 4 for now, but this may change to 5! Will see. Highly recommended!
