3 stars A new British band regarded as one of the new bands from the British scene.

Their music is a mix of mellow stadium rock, indie rock and Rush type harmonies and riffs. Despite of some pretty long songs (twenty and thirty minutes), the music is pretty accessible and commercial. But it still has a great deal of substance. The band is also handling their instruments pretty good too. Even the sound is excellent. The vocals is good for this type of band too. Which means no Pavarotti, but still pretty effective vocals.

For me, this album is a bit too much the same throughout. It becomes a bit boring. But get this band on a stage and I am pretty sure the raving reviews their live shows have garnered so far is true. I am not particular fond of some of the shoe-gaze and emo stuff on this album too. But this album is still an excellent album for those into the new indie based stadium rock with some Rush influences put in as the dot on the top of the i. I do expect a lot from the follow up album though. Watch this space.

3.5 stars
