The Truth
4 stars A wonderful blend of the classic post rock sound, ambient, and shoegaze. Gregor Samsa has come up with something stunning.

The only reason I knew this band existed is because I love the author Franz Kafka. The band's name is derived from the main character in his book The Metamorphosis and this led me to really want to hear this band.

I was rather pleased to hear this fresh new post rock sound that has the melancholy that makes me love post rock and yet contains other elements that make it amazing. Shoegaze is a wonderful object to add to the thick texture the album has and it produces a wonderful sound.

One interesting thing about this album is that unlike quite a few post rock bands where the vocals detract from the pleasure of the listening experience, this is actually used as a stimulant. Only a few bands can pull this off and they happen to be my favorite post rock bands.

Great little beauty, go ahead and try it if you love post rock. If not, start loving post rock by listening to it.

The Truth | 4/5 |
