5 stars Last year my listening was chock full of great post-rock releases from notable bands such as This Will Destroy You and Mogwai, but this year has not been filled with as many post-rock greats, just more ambient, indie rock and similar genres. Leech's album this year is truly the only post-rock record thus far that has really captivated me.

This was my introduction to Leech, and now I know I need to get more from them, this album is layered perhaps more beautifully than any other post-rock record I've heard, not limited to the status quo of post-rock instruments but at times even a sax is brought in for brilliant results. It's just little quirks like that and the raw emotion that has become synonymous with post-rock breathes new life in this record.

Post-rock fans will love it, newcomers to post-rock will get addicted just by letting there ears into this album's beauty. Definitely I five star performance by Leech and I look forward to a future listen of their previous record.

4 stars If you don't know Leech, this is an excellent album or let's call it, first step, to know the band. Yes, this is the last album of this Swiss band, but what an album, full of dramatic changes, electronic sounds, keyboard displays, guitar in a very post rock style, at times calm and relax, at times heavy. The environment they create with the album is appropriate for any time you are looking for relaxation. A very long album indeed, more than 1 hr of very good post rock music. The only possible drawback is that maybe all the album maintains the same style, but in fact they are respecting entirely the essence of post rock. Yet, I also heard elements of hard rock that made the album much more interesting. For lovers of Explosions in the Sky, this is a must!
