4 stars "You Don't Belong Here" is the third release from this young outfit from Detroit. Is it their best so far? Hard to say since their prior release, "All The Memories, All At Once" is a post-rock masterpiece. That said, "You Don't Belong Here" comes at the listener hard and strong with everything a fan of the genre could want...ominous edginess, crescendos, mature playing and plenty of emotion. This is only a 4-song release so if this is anything like what's to follow in a full-length, well, it should be exciting. Based on a concept of the four seasons, this recording is the result of combining Detroit youngsters still in their teens with Motown mastering legend Bob Dennis (Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Miracles, The Four Tops, The Supremes). Standout tracks on this EP are "Winter (Diorama Dream)" and "Summer (The Golden Plain)" which sounds like U2's Edge had his hands all over it. Epic and emotional, "You Don't Belong Here" continues Sunlight Ascending's, dare I say, ascension, up the post-rock ladder...Awesome!
