Review by TRoTZ
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars 65 Days of Static had the sense they had to do something, to explore new domains, their experimentations were generally exhausted. In "The Destruction of Small Ideas" they tried to bring new horizons, but what instead ended to happen was a removal of much of what was really theirs - their unique electronic breakbeat elements would dilute much more on favor of the traditional post-rock aesthetics. So, basically a failed attempt of reconstructing their vision, because instead of doing it, they almost erased it.

Well, actually, not entirely true. It may be valid the aphorism but, by doing so, they put in evidence their gentle ability to retrace subtleness, which was present, but somewhat ostracized on the previous works. They, after all, wanted to give more emphasis on the feeling - electronic elements are secondary and work for the atmosphere. The album's single, "Don't Go Down to Sorrow" is a good picture of this sensible perceptiveness of a moving, intricate disillusion, in a taciturn contemplative analysis, flowing from elegant and memorable piano lines to captivating spacey odd signatures and haphazard guitars. And in fact, there is a moment on the album, a turning point almost evolving into something different. This moment is on the elegant "Music is Music as Devices are Kisses Is Everything", reaching levels of misconceived beauty with its layered piano and symphonic nuances. And continued with the distinctive post-techno nostalgia of "The Distant & Mechanized Glow of Eastern European Dance Parties". "Little Victories" move the general feeling into an anticipated majestic glory, introspectively analyzed in "Primer", inexorably ending with the solemn anguish of the "White Peak/Dark Peak". The album could end here, but the band opted to give a more impulsive final ending with "The Conspiracy of Seeds".

While not bringing much of new, it happens to be a distinctive work for the band, their supreme achievement of a gifted sensibility towards music. Their paintings are opaque, sometimes abstract, but meaningful.

3 stars With The Destruction of Small Ideas, we see 65daysofstatic thinning out their manic breakbeat sections and searching for new ways to do what they do. It still sounds like the same guys, but the pieces this time around lack the immediate, concise structures from before. As a result, the album can get a bit monotonous, and it is definitely longer than it should have been. The music is good, but you may find yourself getting bored about halfway through the record. With a little more development, these new ideas could yield some neat results in the future. You can be certain that the best is yet to come.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Following on from the majestic One Time For All Time, The Destruction of Small Ideas is an engaging and listenable album from 65daysofstatic but falls short of the standards of its illustrious predecessor. Whereas One Time For All Time showed a skilled blending of electronic and guitar-driven varieties of post-rock, The Destruction seems to revert to keeping the electronic-based songs (which occasionally approach mainstream dance music) and guitar-led compositions (which feel like a throwback to The Fall of Math) rigidly separate, to the detriment of the music.

The nadir of the album is probably The Distant and Mechanised Glow of Eastern European Dance Parties, a techno tribute which feels incredibly out of place; I'd have thought it was a joke, except it lasts entirely too long for that. There's a clutch of good tracks on here but it's hard not to see it as a stumble for the band.

4 stars After seeing 65daysofstatic live and buying this CD I have felt compelled to write a review. Other reviewers on the site have said that this CD is a step away from their sound and that it is for some reason of less value, I dissagree, to me this CD feels like a natural progression for the band. ...
