Review by Prog-jester
4 stars Post-Rock is NOT dead - until we have bands like BELL ORCHESTRE and releases like "As Seen Through Windows".

While the majority of genre's bands tend to grow heavier and mix their guitar-based music with electronics, some unique outfits progress in their own special way. Never a guitar worshipers collective, BELL ORCHESTRE examine the territory of bells, violins and piano sounds, inspired rather by modern Classical composers and Chamber Rock than by 80s indie or today's delay-tremolo-overdrive twins. Sometimes quirky and joyful, sometimes melancholic and academic, BELL ORCHESTRE's music is not everyone's cup of tea, but it's undoubtfully fresh and captivating. Highly recommended - especially for those who thinks Post-Rock is five bands that are good and thousand clones that are bad.

Review by Warthur
4 stars Bell Orchestre take their inclusion of brass and stringed instruments into their post-rock sound even further on As Seen Through Windows, and in particular they go all-out to bring jazz back into post-rock. I've never heard a post-rock release which shows so much influence from classic jazz except, if you count them as post-rock (and I personally do) the final two Talk Talk albums. Although a very few post-rock acts have incorporated jazz influences into their sound since Talk Talk's swansong, I can't think of any who have managed to recapture that particular mastery of jazz influences in a post-rock context; Bell Orchestre succeed admirably.
