2 stars Well as a fan of Experimental post-rock band Cerebus Shoal and just discovering Guapo recently, I had high hopes that this would be some kind of great experimental success. Well not quite! Actually if you compared the two band's sounds, this is more like a Cerebus Shoal album although the full line-up of new Guapo represent three quarters of the musicians involved.

The music developped here is some sort of post-ambient-rock but IMHO, this goes nowhere and fast.I have now heard many such albums and I can say that this is very average and even disappointing from a progressive point of view especially if you consider that Guapo's last two album (with O'Sullivan at the KB) are simply excellent in their genre. As opposed to post-rock album from GYBE! or Do Say May Think and other Constellation label releases , we are in a very uneventful slow evolvind ear-cringing minimalism but not fascinating or hypnotizing like Tortoise or other afore-mentioned groups.

Actually this records is soothing only once it has stopped.
