4 stars 4.5 stars really!!!

The San Fran based Tarentel is, by the time of this release, one of the mainstays of the post rock movement but also one of the more consistent quality-minded group. They may be also the second most innovative band in the genre after Tortoise.

This album is one real treat to the adventurous proghead and in some respect is a proud successor of Krautrock masterpieces in the mould of early Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Popol Vuh (before their more esoteric phase). Musically we are a far cry from another great album of theirs, From Bone To Satellite, which was much more conventional in the post-rock genre and stuck more closely to GYBE! and added a Floyd touch also. The music here is more in the spirit of Tortoise (experimental explorations) and man, do they ever achieve a stunning oeuvre with this album. The least we can say is that Tarentel was not afraid to use samples and modify sounds enough to have the humour to call some instruments Clariphone Flubaphone or Hydrophone. There are moments that also make me think of Cul De Sac who was also heavily Krautrock influenced but turned lately to post rock and sound a bit similar to this album.

With such a stupendous album, Tarentel really proves that they are still the brightest hope of Post-rock and are still dishing superbly inventive albums when other tenors have long run out of steam or are simply duplicating their formula. A real must for any proghead who really want to discover what Post Rock is all about!!!
