3 stars I must be losing it. I've been listening to this for about a week and even wrote at the top of the page of my review "Space Rock". So I get on here and it's listed under Post-Rock (haha). Oh boy. Anyway I guess according to the bio these Americans are making music that blends Post- Rock, Psychedleic / Space-Rock and Krautrock. They do mention the OZRIC TENTACLES in the bio which I certainly thought of a lot while listening to this. I'm missing the Krautrock part though.

"Who Can Find The Beast ?" has this electronic beat to open then atmosphere floods in around a minute. "Pyramid Of The Sun" has a catchy beat as it becomes fuller and the guitar eventually joins in too. Nice. "We Got the System To Fight The System" opens with guitar but it builds quickly to an uptempo melody. "They'll No More Suffer From Thirst" is again catchy and we get that repetitive beat. The guitar comes and goes.

"Ruins" has a heavy beat with electronics. It starts to slow down 2 1/2 minutes in to the end. "They'll No More Suffer From Hunger" is an uptempo barn-burner. The guitar is ripping it up 4 minutes in. It settles back over the final minute and blends into "Oaxaca". It starts to pick up before a minute. Catchy stuff. "Bye M'friend, Goodbye" has this electronic beat then the guitar comes in after a minute. It's building after 2 minutes then it kicks in to an uptempo soundscape.

3.5 stars for me. I do like this a lot but the music I have of this style like the OZRICS, KORAI OROM, COLORSTAR etc just do it a little better.
