3 stars While i love the 2 albums they released after this (the excellent self released rehearsal CD-R, and the Alt Rock released, Saturnai) here you find the band kinda still searching for their sound. The drummer for instance does not have the best sounding kit ever at times sounding very un-acoustic and rather artificial. The same goes for the guitarist who has great tone on the other subsequent cds but here it is submerged in effects that don't really spotlight his great playing. Of course the compositions are good and what you would expect from this band (Henry Cow-ish with a pinch of Hatfield or The Muffins added for good measure). Recommended to completists...but for new comers i would direct them to the other 2 mentioned releases, or wait for their 2013 release which will come out soon.
