2 stars Nice atmospheric 'ambient rock', but nothing to rave about. Even more, some tracks scream 'late TALK TALK!', at least they wish to be treated that way, but no. While TALKies were making Pop music using extraordinary harmonies and chord progressions, NO-MAN makes extraordinary Pop music by using pretty simple and predictable hooks. Good for Pop, nothing for Prog. OK, leave alone 'Prog-not Prog' sentiment; I just didn't like the whole album. It flows moody and may bore you to sleep - yes, this is me, a Post-Rock Collab, saying this! Guys tried hard to free their music from any rough edges and finally shape it in a some kind of a sphere, without any kind of detail to stick to. You like it while it's playing - you forget it the very next second you turned it off. Prog for supermarkets; Ambient for elevators; background Rock. 2 stars, because of 'Truenorth' mainly, where mr.Wilson's hand is felt the most
