5 stars 7 years now since their last release and what a nice return!

I ll be honest, I barely listened to 2005's The end is beautiful and Mei, but this album is very fresh and kinds of takes the band to a new direction. We know them for the dissonant melodies and cool crazy tempos like as gentle giant did, but this album is more melodic and accesible than the others.

The only thing I dislike of the album is its name, and the fact it is splitted into two cds, I feel like when I am switching longplay sides like every 20 minutes!

My favourite tracks are the sweet kicker Island topping 16 minutes, headright is also a good short song bringing their pop side out. Speaking in lampblack has one of the most important choruses in the cd which I would say reaches the climax: "time has no name and regret has no meaning". The others are also great songs one of them reaching the twelve minute mark, Some memorial.

I cant describe my level of satisfaction with this record brought by echolyn, i havent felt such satisfaction since I listened to As the world a couple of years ago. If you are looking for some crazy eclectic music you wont find it in this one, but if you are a big fan of echolyn and looking for something more mature you should totally try this one.

Garlop | 5/5 |
