4 stars For The First Time is a unique and promising debut album from relatively new Prog/Art Rock act Black Country, New Road. The album is what i would describe as if Spiderland by Slint was made by a Prog band in the 70s, BCNR is a crossover between Post Rock and Prog Rock and here it really shows, the Slint influence bleeds all over this album with some King Crimson and even some Van Der Graaf Generator like elements here. Probably my favorite thing about this record is the comic book like writing style it has especially on tracks like Sunglasses and Science Fair, that combined with the super unique sounding vocals of Isaac Wood you get a really interesting album especially with how eclectic it is taking elements of Post Rock, Prog, Punk, Jazz and even Klezmer. Safe to say this album and band will defiy the 2020s
