4 stars This swan song album of Landberk shows us a band, which has matured in a way that may not please many prog fans. As pointed out in previous reviews, the influences of their original inspirers are not anymore present, but I see it only as a good thing. The music is soft, clam, melancholic and emotional, and I like it very much. This record is also accessible to listeners not fond of chaotic avant-garde music. The album opens with a great couple of "Humanize" and "All Around Me", which are tied as a one musical packet. The other highlights for me here are "I Wish I Had A Boat" which is very mournful and beautiful, as is "Why Do I Still Sleep". The closer "Indian Summer" is a silent post-rock influenced tune. Though the band faded after this, their spirit continues in the band Paatos, check that out if you liked this album (and also Anekdoten's albums from "From Within"). There are some interesting small details in the arrangements, like the second final verse on "I Wish I Had A Boat", where the lyrics are echoed as silenced screams, barely audible.
