Prog Reviewer
3 stars Following on from the majestic One Time For All Time, The Destruction of Small Ideas is an engaging and listenable album from 65daysofstatic but falls short of the standards of its illustrious predecessor. Whereas One Time For All Time showed a skilled blending of electronic and guitar-driven varieties of post-rock, The Destruction seems to revert to keeping the electronic-based songs (which occasionally approach mainstream dance music) and guitar-led compositions (which feel like a throwback to The Fall of Math) rigidly separate, to the detriment of the music.

The nadir of the album is probably The Distant and Mechanised Glow of Eastern European Dance Parties, a techno tribute which feels incredibly out of place; I'd have thought it was a joke, except it lasts entirely too long for that. There's a clutch of good tracks on here but it's hard not to see it as a stumble for the band.

Warthur | 3/5 |
