4 stars The first album I've listened to by this duo. Comes with the ethereal, spacious soundscapes that you'd expect of something filed under the Post Rock genre, but definitely more to it than that. Heavy use of reverb and distortion but to good effect alongside Heaton's chamber music style vocals. Tracks such as Evaporate and In Sunny Landscapes at times are much faster paced and "busy" than you'd expect from Post-Rock but always shrink back to minimalism just at the right moments.

Intrigued to hear the rest of Midas Fall's output but in isolation I'd imagine this album works both ways; as an entry point into the Post Rock style for those looking to explore it, and as a branching out of the norm for anyone who's tastes are firmly in the genre.
