5 stars It's been maybe 2 years since I've written a review on ProgArchvies, and when I saw Malval at 3.12 stars, it was enough to get me writing again.

This album is a masterpiece in my opinion. It opened my eyes on a big number of musical elements and possibilities.

A beautiful instrumental marriage between the post and the math, one of the few bands for which this category name actually works... A rough production, especially on drums, but exceptional composition, full of subtilty and an odd mix of simplicity and complexity, never sounding intentionnally technical (I never rate those too high...), with a fluid and strangely coherent sound.

Go Listen! There are two tracks available for free listenning on ProgArchives

Ha... just OKed that 5-stars warning popup in a microsecond.
