3 stars Hmm, now although i do like this band to an extent, i never really got why theyre on Prog Archives,never really counted them as progressive, but meh there here, i own 2 albums so i'll do a review on both. The one thing that really annoys me about this band is that every song is too samey same, their quite bland, every song (as beautiful as most of them are) just seem to start with nothing and build up till a climax, now some people could argue that that is part of being a 'progressive band' but isnt vairation also part of it? i would just like to hear a little more of that is all, theres really nothing else to add here, the production is good and the musicmanship is second to none the songs are very beautiful though so instead marking them on everything else, ill mark each song on just sheer beauty;

First Breath After Coma - 8/10 The Only Moment We Were Alone - 10/10 Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean - 10/10 Memorial - 7/10 Your Hand in Mine - 9/10

MY CONCLUSION? is there anything else to add here? if your a fan of the band MONO, or just a post-rock fan in gereral its worth a look, but it can get annoying after a while..
