4 stars I don't know why all Canadian post rock bands always use violins and horns. It's as if they didn't know electric guitar and synths existed and I always found that rather annoying. I love post-rock but I stay away from Canadian post rock because of that. One day a friend of mine talked about a band he saw at a festival or something and I decided to buy the album without knowing how they sounded like. Then I start hearing horns and all that and stopped right there. Months later, I gave it another shot having nothing else to do and I loved it. It's just wonderful. This album actually made me love Canadian the way I'm Canadian so I was kind of ashamed of not liking Canadian experimental music.

The goal of making post rock music is to not sound repetitive through repetition and Bell Orchestre really won that one. They build their layers perfectly adding new instruments over and over. Plus you got to love those bells as they use them a lot and this is what really defines them. It adds that cheerful thing to their music. It's the best music to listen while strolling in the snowy forest.

So if you don't like Canadian post rock bands... try this one and think again.
