4 stars Somewhat of a disappointment after the incredible El Cielo, but still a highly enjoyable album! One of the first things I noticed about this album that set it apart from El Cielo is the relatively simple song structure on most tracks, whereas El Cielo was full of very imaginative and unique song writing Catch Without Arms seems to follow a fluent Verse-Chorus-Verse-Chorus structure, while still maintaining their artistic integrity. Another thing I noticed was the absence of "Bushstrokes" or "Movements", the short but excellent instrumental tracks spread across Dredg's first two albums. I feel this album could have been a lot better if some of the more poppy and forgettable tracks ("Not that Simple", "Spitshine") were replaced by Dredg's unique and beautiful instrumentals. Why they chose to leave them out, I don't know, but I definitely feel this album could have been improved greatly by their presence. Some standout tracks : The beautiful and uplifting "Ode To The Sun" the hard-hitting and fast paced "The Tanbark is Hot Lava" and my favorite song off the album "Jamais Vu"

Overall, an enjoyable album that doesn't quite reach the brilliance of El Cielo, but still contains some great Dredg music! Recommended to Dredg fans and music lovers alike! ..

4/5
