4 stars Rolo Tomassi's debut album is very impressive indeed. The creation of such a complex, diverse album at such a young age is something that continues to astound me. This will be a band to follow in the years to come.

While the main chug of the music is very brutal and hectic, it is balanced perfectly with more dreamy soundscapes. Overall, the heavier side of the music is dominated by delicious female grunting/screaming and crazy abstract shredding by the guitarist. The more athmospheric side is usually taken care of by the keyboard player. The whole album feel is definately very experimental.

Songs of special mention for me are: Oh, Hello Ghost, I Love Turbulence, Macabre Charade and Fantasia.
