5 stars It's very strange that nobody yet has bothered to review this fantastic album, but alright, let me be the first. "The Collibro" is the third release of this Danish outfit. This album presents us the wonderful amalgam of post-rock ambiences and ingenious and progressive arrangements, with a bit of contemporary Alternative influences, used in moderate amounts to add a special spice. With most of the music on the album being complex and intensely active, band has cleverly used relaxing post-rock background and short interludes to avoid overtiring of the listener. As a result, the album has great flow and is a joy to listen throughout. It's very hard to pick highlights here, because albums is so uniformly great but if I had to choose one, I think it would be "Recalling The Color", brilliantly arranged song, with both dynamics and beauty.

To sum it up, this album has a broad appeal. Fans of Post Rock, The Mars Volta, Radiohead, Muse, or similar bands will certainly enjoy it, which means quite a big mainstream commercial perspective today. Apart from them, any lover of challenging rock music should at least try this. There's little chance of disappointment here. For me, it's one of the Top releases of 2010, and the work that deserves to be much more widely appreciated than it is now. 5 big stars, without any question.

5 stars I'm generally not the greatest fan of the modern "progressive" alt rock put out by bands such as Muse, but on this record, Lis er Stille manage to push through what made that genre boring and stagnant. Every song is complex, layered and well thought out. The approach to composition seems more classically based than other heavy rock, but the rock is still very much there. Of particular note are Martin Byrialsen's organic sounding keyboards, which provide ethereal yet fitting textures to the music which contrast nicely with the guitar and drums as well as pleasant and appropriate piano interludes during the middle of longer songs. The album feels like it has a concept or narrative of some sort, although I have yet to work out what it is. Overall a fantastic album particularly for fans of progressive hard rock or alternative rock.
