2 stars So this is what I figure as post-rock would be if it were played by robots. This is quite bad actually, I find it lacking any emotion (what is post-rock without emotion?), any dynamics, any variety and originality. Well, the musicianship is quite fine actually, but, I would not want a crazy fast-paced drummer for my post-rock band, this is too fast! This is like the post-rock soundtrack for a James Bond movie, and that does not please me at all.

Every song in here is too heavy, it stops sometimes and gives way to some melodies, but even those melodies won't move me, also we have some electronic futuristic moments, well, I love This Will Destroy You's electronics, it's simple and fitting, but here it just increases the confusion and the robotic feeling. There are some beautiful moments like "Remaining Light" but I'm just so tired and disturbed about all that speed drumming and pace that I find very hard to enjoy,

I won't do a track by track review, I think it's pointless in post-rock, and also, I would repeat myself too much. Basically this is so emotionless that I would only recommend this to people who actually can't get into regular post-rock.
