Prog Reviewer
4 stars Bell Orchestre take their inclusion of brass and stringed instruments into their post-rock sound even further on As Seen Through Windows, and in particular they go all-out to bring jazz back into post-rock. I've never heard a post-rock release which shows so much influence from classic jazz except, if you count them as post-rock (and I personally do) the final two Talk Talk albums. Although a very few post-rock acts have incorporated jazz influences into their sound since Talk Talk's swansong, I can't think of any who have managed to recapture that particular mastery of jazz influences in a post-rock context; Bell Orchestre succeed admirably.
