Review by Conor Fynes
4 stars 'Hundred Million Angels' - Loss Of A Child (7/10)

If you're like me, you will look at the track length and think to yourself almost immediately; "Oh, a post-rock version of 'A Change of Seasons' or 'Supper's Ready?' No, not quite. While the term 'epic' can certainly be used to describe this composition, it does not act as the sort of epic length prog track we're used to by now. 'Hundred Million Angels' is essentially a running barrage of very dense post rock atmospherics. There a plenty of brilliant riffs, but no single idea goes on long enough to really make the piece feel like a full-fledged composition.

From the start onwards, the listener is being exposed to two or three different counterpointing melodies at the same time for the most part; and this can get a bit hectic. However, while I've passed this off as being twenty minutes of chaotic noise, there really is alot of beauty to hear, even if it might be a bit hard to discern any single melody out of it. The density of the piece might have actually worked wonders though, had it not been for the relatively lo-fi sound quality and production. With a not-so-clean production job, alot of the sounds can blend in with each other robbing it of alot of the magic that is locked inside the performance.

The sheer amount of effort it must have taken these guys to write such a dense piece of music is staggering. This is challenging to really love as far as post-rock goes, but each listen only grows the appreciation. This twenty minute piece has more to it than most full-length albums, and could have been so much more with a little more polish.
