4 stars This album is a fine example of the 'joyously melancholic' type of heavy progressive rock that is typified by Tool . There are hints also of post death growl Opeth, Porcupine Tree and Amplifier in the mix too, but the band transcend their sources of inspiration to create something beautifully their own. There is complexity to the rhythms in particular with drums, bass and guitar all working together (and in counterpoint) to create an often hypnotic poly-rhythmic backdrop , but the music is never fussy. The vocals are clean, if sombre , and carry the melody well. Opening track Dissipating, and the shorter track Fugue stand out as early favourites but it has the feel of an album that will grow with more listens.
