4 stars Really 4.5 stars. I just recently discovered NORTH ATLANTIC OSCILLATION and all I can say is WOW, these guys are brilliant. The music is very fresh, boasts near immediate accessibility, and sports great song writing and musicianship. My only complaint has to do with the album's first track, Marrow. This plucky little number only runs 2:04 ? and therein lies my rub. It's way too short. It could easily be double or triple that time and still be an interesting listen from start to finish. If you like bands such as Porcupine Tree and Oceansize, great harmonies, and a nearly 'raw' sound to the music's production, you'll love NAO. These guys need a lot more attention, and I can't wait for their next album.
