Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Another achingly gorgeous and melancholy piece of electronic post-rock from The Album Leaf. With impeccable production and performances, once again The Album Leaf stick to the Sigur Ros school of post-rock as opposed to the more ramshackle and rough around the edges variety practiced by Godspeed You Black Emperor or Mogwai. I agree with digdug's review that the electronic drums on this album are a particular treat - they're so hard to use in a way which doesn't just sound cheap and artificial, but here they prove to be an integral element of the sound. On the whole, it's not a revolutionary album, but it's still a winner in my book.

4 stars Another post-rock album. Which means it's a cross between background music, and a lullaby. Don't expect me to love it in the same way I love genesis or king crimson, there isn't enough here for that. But don't write it off just yet. I'll give it this: it is extremely pretty. Background lullaby it m ... (read more)

3 stars I'm not really sure I understand the post-rock genre at all- it seems to be a huge umbrella term for a lot of disparate things. Sure, 'In A Safe Place' has the krautrock-influenced, touching on motorik percussion seen in 'Thule', and sure the emphasis throughout is on overall texture as with man ... (read more)

4 stars Jimmy LaVallee has done something I thought was impossible. He has made me truly enjoy electronic drums! Usually, they detract from the sound, but he uses them in a way that ordinary drums could not be used, and therefore, they become original. The overall sound of ?The Album Leaf? is very ...

3 stars Listen this album is like listen Sigur Ros but more electronic but passionless, the whole album has the same atmosphere, that never caught me, the whole album it's even, not like EITS, where you can find, in a even album, a lot of mixtures, this album hasn't, is just the mixture of sigur ros+elec ...

4 stars "In A Safe Place" is easily a post rock masterpiece. Although there is little climactic buildup, which is typical of the genre, Jimmy Lavell unwinds a wonderful story through ambient use of instrumental melodies, backed up intermittently by vocals. The electric aspect of the album is prevalent, ... (read more)
