3 stars Maudlin of the well is a band that ive know about since 2000 but i never quite had the patience to listen to a full album. This was the time to do it, as ive had heard wonders of "Part The Second", but i must say i felt dissapointed with the hype, maybe its because i'm not to keen on post rock/experimental type of music but i think every genre has its great bands and albums ... this particular one didnt do much for me, ive heard it about 10 times and although from the beginning ive felt the potential of the album it never quite developed to the level i thought it would reach, there are some nice elements and song parts but as with a lot of postrock bands it all gets drowned in a sea of ambient and instrumental boring passages that seem to go nowhere, there are some piano parts that i really like, some good orchestrated stuff and some great dissonant riffs (clover garland island has a great intro) ... but as a whole it felt duct taped in some parts for the sake of the whole "lets be experimental and do weird stuff that doesnt make sense" vibe. Overall it was an album that i enjoyed but not too much.
