3 stars Another EITS album, another mish mash of beauty and samey sames, the only real new plus side on this album i think is the over all 'epic' scope of this one, which i think bumps it up a notch to me. The intro song THE BIRTH AND DEATH OF THE DAY has some really cool alternate picking towards the end that really gave me goosebumps and the final song SO LONG, LONESOME is just fantastic, that piano riff is so haunting and beautiful, the rest just seem the same to me, just has this start that just seems to come out of nowhere and build up and build up till it reaches a final climax, which of course is great for one maybe 2 songs but there is no vairation, it just seems to stuck to one formula because everyone seems to ike that one formula, theres no real expirimentation with structure, ahh hopefully there might be some on future releases;

The Birth and Death of the Day - 10/10 Welcome, Ghosts - 6/10 It's Natural To Be Afraid - 6/10 What Do You Go Home To? - 6/10 Catastrophe and the Cure - 6/10 So Long, Lonesome - 9/10

MY CONCLUSION? a little better than the last album, although nothing really to be excited about, for post-rock fans..
