4 stars Pelican along with Neurosis, The Ocean, and Isis are my favorite post-metal bands. City of Echoes is great because like a lot of post-metal, it is full of sludge and doom metal riffs, but it also has the prettier, atmospheric side to it too. The album is a solid piece of instrumental post-metal that is enough to satisfy anyone who is looking for that specific kind of music. The songs go from being light, to heavy, as such can be heard in the title track. The album has 8 songs and it's only a little over 40 minutes long, which is unusual for post-metal with the songs being that short, but sometimes it's good to have the shorter songs because they can be just as good, if not greater than some of the longer songs common in post-metal. Pelican are a great band and I recommend them for anyone who is looking for great, heavy, and atmospheric post-metal, without all the screaming of course.
