4 stars As a great fan of Post Rock, I never thought that Krobak's music would appeal to me this much. I've been seeing its name around for quite some time now and it wasn't until now that it caught my attention. The first things that came to mind was a combination of Mono meets Yndi Halda and of course Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Diary of The Missed One starts off with "Park Luny", a song that starts with a childish tune and quickly kicks it with the main tune, yet the second part of the song is where the song gets good with another great tune. The next one: "By the Music of Autumn Trees" is by far my favorite of them all. The crescendo part and the ones before the ending have a very melancholic feeling. Something to notice about the song is the ending in which the drums go ballistic and crazy and though it sounded good, it did ruin the momentum and the atmosphere created by the rest of the song. The last song: The Fried Bull's Blues which peaks almost at 22 minutes takes about 3 minutes to really start, something I'm not a fan of and its around the 7 minutes where the song starts to get really good in which there are some heavy riffs with a sort of evil/melancholic feel to it. The next part of the song sounds OK but it feels a bit misplaced and it takes a while get used to.

In overall we get a great post rock epic with fantastic tunes and melodies and filled with memorable moments. There's really much to expect from Krobak in the future.
