2 stars While Post rock is not normally my choice when it comes to listen to some good music, I do enjoy it from time to time. First of all I must say I am no expert by any means, but I do think I know enough to rate an album of the genre.

Silence Kit is, for me, the russian combination of Godspeed and Mogwai and, as far as combinations go, this isn´t very thrilling. All I hear I feel I have heard before (maybe not, probably not), there is nothing exciting about this bands music. Disonant guitars that creat textures on which the changes and tempos slowly evolve are, of coure, the main course, as it is with 90% of the Post bands anyways, but here, although we do enjoy part of the ride, the rest comes out a bit bland, with no substance and nothing to make me want to listen carefully. And the fact that all songs are very, very long is, on the contrary to most prog, not a good thing, for, as usual, Post rock takes like forever to build up (which by the way is one of the elements I like the most about the genre), but here they not only take forever, they never seem to get anywhere.

I must say that although there are some good Post bands, most of them (for me at least) are like these, uninteresting and trying to make the same stuff others are doing without realizing the genre in itself is quite restricted.
