2 stars The great band Tortoise, usually pegged as 'post-rock', generally defy that label and do a wholly original stew of texture, sound effects, and beat-influenced film rock drawing from Ennio Morricone as much as from early Pink Floyd. To me, this entry is not quite as fascinating as their 'Standards' album though still quite unique and expressive. If you're already a fan, you'll likely find 'It's All Around You' to be quite satisfying. For other proggies, I'd say look elsewhere for your Tortoise moment.
