5 stars I've heard this album at least 10 times in the past two weeks, not as an excersise of listening, but as a thing of love, beacuse i couldn't bealive this record is so good. Forgetting and avoiding the progressive rock conventionalisms, this band creates 16 passages of great musicianship, from the noisy opening cut to the various intermissions called "brushstrokes", this record has de clarity of RADIOHEAD, the pop of THE SMITHS, the deepness of THE CURE, and the complexity of PINK FLOYD, but everything merged in a very own language and voice, that stand apart from previous mentioned bands. New generations of players has become more autocritical than chops- mainstream oriented, searching their own niche in the vast musical scene. Be warned, this record is for the new ear, for the experimental, for the self-indulgent. Try to think this as a new step into the listening experience. I hate to mention a particular peak point, beacuse it shows some preferences and guides some ideas to start something or to espect something; as i always try to say: hear the record in it's entierety, fell in love with it's deep and whole-hearted textures, colors and sounds. A record that (i hope) will stand the test of time.
