Review by Conor Fynes
3 stars 'Adam & Eve' - Loss Of A Child (5/10)

While always showing flashes of brilliance in their work, Loss Of A Child has never been a band that's really astounded me with their music. I have always found them to be too uniform in their style, and fail to have a sense of real dynamic in their music. While there's definately intelligence in some of the complex guitar layers they write, the band seems to be trying too hard at giving an 'epic' sound to their music; failing to go anywhere really profound. With 'Adam & Eve,' the band still suffers from a lack of variety and depth to their music, but it is the best executed piece of music the band has done up until the point of this album's follow-up, 'Carry Me Home.'

The two albums before this one had witnessed a gradual development in the band's sound. 'The Future Symphony,' while having the most variety and emotional appeal, had horrible production and an execution that left a little to be desired. 'Caught & Lost' solidified their style, but was far worse in terms of quality. With this album, the production still hasn't improved much, but it feels like the band is able to express themselves much better with this. The ride is still very bumpy in parts (some of the track transitions are very jagged and ill-fitting) but things feel alot more professional here. With alot of the previous work, things were mixed too heavily on the piano work; whereas here it is much more of a guitar-based journey.

There is far too little melody here, which might be the biggest flaw with Loss Of A Child's style. There is always alot of different things going on, but they seem to be pulling out the same tricks each time; very rarely throwing something new into the mix. With that in mind, Loss Of A Child is a group to check out if you are a sincere fan of post-rock music, but then again, there is plenty of better music in the genre to listen to. 'Adam & Eve' may be a wall of dense sound throughout, but it is a well-composed wall of dense sound.

5 stars All right, I can already anticipate getting some flack for this five star review. But hear me out. Loss of a Child is, without a doubt, one of the most talented acts in terms of songwriting I've ever been graced to hear. The combination of orchestral composition and post-rock melodies, strings ju ... (read more)

4 stars Loss of a Child for me is neither a Post-Rock band nor what one would normally consider a Prog-Rock band, yet they do push boundaries and play instrumental music. Adam and Eve certainly isn't a simple or easy listen first off, it revels in noise and layers which take many listens before you distin ... (read more)

2 stars Adam and Eve is this English instrumental post-rock's best release to date. The sound and production quality have not improved at all - in fact, at times, it seems as if it has worsened (though not by much). The silly electronic drums are still present, the fake emotional passionate delivery is as ... (read more)
