3 stars This album is a little uneven. While the first four tracks bear a strong resemblance to contemporary British alt rock, the last three tracks are pretty much rooted in Archive’s trip-hop past. However, the songs in between them are highlights of the album for me. “Fold” is a gorgeous, piano laden pop song, chosen for the second single. The title track is a stunning 18+ minute post rock opus that manages to be entertaining throughout its whole time, and while the last 5 minutes drag on a little, it’s the best composition Archive ever recorded. There’s also the first single, “System”, an ear catching little angry song that got me hooked to this album in first place. The rest is decent enough to give it a listen once in a while, though nothing to rave about.
