4 stars A brilliant album with folk choral type vocals set over some very pastoral music (despite the presence of drums). Unusual with an amazing male lead vocalist (Robbie Wilson) and interesting use of organ, strings, horns and effects (recorded in a church??) With only one song clocking in at less than five minutes--and three over seven--I'm not sure this album deserves the "Crossover" label-- think "Folk" label much more appropriate--though band calls themselves Post Rock/Modern Classical--both of which there are definite presences. There is even a strong feel of church chorale influence. As Robbie sings--and the effects cause a church-like echo--one cannot help but feel transported to some sacred or angelic venue. Amazing to have this kind of voice singing over the Post Rock/Folk Rock music! "Progressive" in the truest sense of the word. I cannot yet give this album 5 stars "masterpiece" status for I have only listened to it twice on and once since buying it from, but I want to. It is definitely a stunning album, start to finish. Reminds me of Fleet Foxes and The Decemberists, playing over music by Sigur Rs and Radiohead. Check it out, everybody!
