4 stars The debut album from these disharmonic noise mongers.

Disharmonic is something that came later. On this album, they were still pretty harmonic and melody orientated. Yes, this band has also done pretty conventional melodies too. They abandoned this concept on their follow up albums though.

The basis of this album is jazz. Or more like guitar picking based jazz. Django Reinhardt type of jazz springs to mind on large parts of this album. But there is also a lot of post rock on this album. A genre I feel this band belongs in because they are not RIO/Avant Garde in the traditional sense of this term. Maybe this band is a post-progressive rock band.

This being their debut album and by far their most commercial accessible album, it is a very good album. It does not have this dense misantrophic disdain for melodies their other albums got. It also has some good melody lines, but is still pretty avant-garde. Or post-progressive if you want. I have given this album a frightening amount of time lately and I really likes what I hear.

A toss up between 3 and 4, but I ends up on four stars.

4 stars
