3 stars This album is a bit mixed bag for me. It opens with few very stereotypic post-rock compositions. Well played, they brings nothing new at all, and in fact could be recorded by any of hundred other post-rock bands.

Somewhere in the middle some music became more personalised, with warmer sound ,interesting keyboards and some influences from nu.jazz (Jaga Jazzist,etc). Then music returned back to quite professional, but almost faceless sound, with rare exceptions.

In all, band musicianship's level is really higher than average, and it's good. But the main problem is compositions. In fact, you will hardly find there song, which you can remember or recognize later.And because of that all album sounds at the end of the day as collection of quite professional but characterless post-rock, without signature of personality.

Not a bad album for post-rock maniacs, but will hardly attract less dedicated listener. Something like 3+.
