3 stars Everytime I read the title of this album it makes me smile. In the liner notes they thank GODSPEED YOU ! BLACK EMPEROR and FLY PAN AM among others.This band is from Toronto and incorporate sax and trumpet into their all instrumental Post-Rock styled music. I found this album to be a difficult listen at times, it requires some patience. Interesting that 5 of the 7 tracks were recorded up near Port Hope, Ontario in a barn over a long weekend in August.

"When Day Chokes The Night" opens with a slowly played guitar melody for over 3 1/2 minutes. It's joined by the bass after 2 minutes.The guitar melody stops then restarts after 4 minutes with brass and bass. It gets pretty intense after 6 minutes and then it calms right down to end as it began with that slowly played guitar. Cool song. "Minman" is mellow to start out without much going on. We get a beat before 2 1/2 minutes and a fuller sound 5 minutes in. The guitar is prominant late. "The Landlord Is Dead" is kind of ominous early with some nice bass. I like it. Brass comes in then a fuller and better sound at 3 minutes. The guitar starts to rip it up. Nice. It settles down to end it.

"The Apartment Song" is laid back with gentle guitar and light drums.There is a brief outbreak after 1 1/2 minutes. "All Of This Is True" opens with drums before guitar joins in with horns. It builds to a climax 2 minutes in then calms right down. Some samples later. "Bruce E Kinesis" features a good beat until 2 minutes in when organ takes over. Drums are back before 3 minutes. "Goodbye Enemy Airship" is very mellow with horns and light drums. The drums do get louder and it kicks in before 5 minutes to a fuller sound. It's fairly repetitive to the end. Good song though.

3.5 stars although I feel I need to keep listening to see if it will grow on me more.
