Prog Reviewer
4 stars Despite the rather bleak cover artwork, God Is an Astronaut's Far From Refuge doesn't exclusively occupy the sort of bleak, post-apocalyptic territory of much post-rock. In fact, there's points on the album where the music sounds downright cheerful. The band distinguish themselves from the post-rock crowd on this one by focusing less on spacey soundscapes and more on tuneful musicanship, with faster and busier compositions than are typical on the post-rock scene. As such, they manage to produce an album which will appeal to those who enjoyed their preceding work whilst at the same time developing their sound enough that the album doesn't feel redundant.
Warthur | 4/5 |
