3 stars Before listening to Callisto I had only listened to Post Metal's 'Big Four', them being Isis, Neurosis, Pelican, and Cult of Luna. I have been an avid fan of the Post Rock genre and i thought i'd give it's heavier side a listen through Isis' Panopticon and it didn't disappoint to say the least. Then I listened to Callisto's Noir and BAM! amazing album!! they floated through heavy brutal riffs to extremely mellow passages seamlessly and even had a touch of avant garde with the sax and all... However, I think this new album is a step back for the band....the album fails to pick up from where they left off at Noir... they've grown much tamer, much less engaging in my point of view. It is a solid effort no doubt about it, but it doesn't have that same energy and experimentation, and in my point of view only picks up at the end with the last three tracks which show a bit of what made me really get into this band... It's a good listen, but just good... 2.5 stars rounded to three...
