4 stars Christian bands have never really been my sort of thing. I do quite like this album though. It's funny, because even stylistically they definitely sound like a band making Christian music, but I still find this album to be a nice listen, and one of the more delicate and beautiful albums in my collection.

The style can be described as very Sigur Ros influenced, more akin to their brighter side like you'd find on albums like Agaetis Byrjun. Or if you want a better idea, take the feel that "Untitled 3" off of Sigur Ros' ( ) album would give, and it could probably be applied to this album. Don't get me wrong however, the unoriginality bullet is dodged.

It's also notable that this band contains vocals, unlike most post-rock bands. They don't sound like Jonsi of Sigur Ros, but they are used in a similar fashion. The lyrics aren't really my sort of thing, as the topic of Christianity has never been a favourite of mine, but they're nice for what they do.

So really, if you're a fan of Sigur Ros I hugely recommend this. No need to worry as they aren't a carbon copy or anything as they do come with a sound of their own, but the influence is pretty large. Enjoyable, calming album. 4 stars.
