2 stars I am not exactly updated on the latest music trends and labelphrases. But I have heard the phrase "shoegaze" being branded around the scene. Post rock can often be connected to shoegaze, I have been informed by people half of my age.

What 1099 is trying here must surely be shoegaze. Some guitars builds up. The crashes down. Then builds up. Sorts of vocals. Guitars builds up. The world is a horrible place. I am depressed now. I need to be consoled. Any pretty girls out there with a shoulder I can lean my head on ? I am crying now. Still crying. Sorry, I am too saddened over this world to go to bed with you (but Angus Young from AC/DC is available).

In short; this EP/album is simply not reaching the expected standards. The music is pedestrian, bordering to sleeping. Although the mood and the ambience is good here, that's all this album has. 1099 has simply forgotten to write good post rock and good melodies. Sorry, but this EP falls way too short of required standards.

2 stars
