4 stars It's my understanding that The Amber Light majorly restructured their sound on their second album, Play, which makes me wonder what on Earth they were thinking. Goodbye to Dusk, Farewell to Dawn has a wonderful sound which draws on a range of prog styles to present a dreamy melodic rock soundscape which hits an excellent balance between accessibility, nostalgia and originality. Imagine if H-era Marillion had been locked in a room with a pile of post-rock albums - more song-oriented stuff like The Album Leaf, perhaps - and were then turfed out and ordered to play a set in the style of Pink Floyd; the end result might sound a little similar, drawing as it does on textures from Floyd's heyday, Marillion's Marbles-era brilliance and the borderline between post-rock and indie rock. Intriguing stuff, in short.
Warthur | 4/5 |
