Prog Reviewer
4 stars It's amazing how a few mild changes in instrumentation and texture can be transformative. Battlestations breathe vivid new life into the post-rock subgenre by making greater use of keyboards and synthesisers than many predecessors in the field, with a delicate production that invests these instruments with a rich, lush sound, and by applying this to standard post- rock compositional conventions they end up producing a sound which is at once familiar and enticing to post-rock listeners (and those who like the idea of post-rock but don't like how it's often executed) whilst at the same time being quite original. Far from being as monochrome as its cover art, In a Cold Embrace offers a diverse range of moods and shows Battlestations to be a name to watch in post-rock.
