4 stars Well, I haven'theard this band's earlier recordings, I just learned about them from the forum topic announcing the free download site for this album, but how on earth are they classified as metal, even post metal? There is not much metal here, more ROI to me than anything, but who am I to complain?

I'm surprised that I never heard of this band, since they come from Boston, not far from my home. But then again, Boston is the Land That Forgot Prog, despite it's rich culture of music.

This album is a joy to listen to, weaving through different styles, like intricate chamber music (the violin & horns adding a beautiful orchestral sound), Meddle-era Pink Floyd-like ballads (but again more intricate than Floyd ever was), 70's King Crimson-like power jams, some Residents-like experimentation, and more too impossible to describe music.

I find thsi so intriguing, I'm going to search for their previous releases in the near future.
