4 stars This third full length production by US outfit Chest Rockwell is most certainly a charming aquaintance.

While their second album was a bit all over the place all the time in terms of stylistic expressions, this most recent creation is a bit more coherent; and the number of distinctly different styles have been reduced as well - and at least in this case the end result is a stronger effort overall.

The musical foundation this time around seems to be some sort of indie / alternative / post rock sound, with mellow and undistorted wandering guitars a central element in most compositions; using the instrument to provide textures just as much as to provide distinct melodies. The songs are generally on the quirky side too; with frequent changes in intensity, pace and sound.

Towards the end of the album we're treated to some stellar metal-dominated tracks too, and the two final tracks Colossus and Mortal Universe are highlighst of this venture alongside oddly named opening number Being An Able Man. There Are Always.

Well worth investigating by the adventurous music fan.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
