Review by Marty McFly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars In the beginning of my review, I have to warn you that this is quite minimalistic album. Too electronic, so beware those who dislike this kind of music, simple song structures and also electronic element is not just represented in overly used synth sounds, but also that there is electronic drummer. You know, there are nice melodies, I admit that. They could have been beautiful if it wasn't for this annoying drum machine.

On the other hand, there are strings. Strings are always pleasant addition on every album (most of albums).

3(-), don't know if I'm too impatient, but probably not, because most of the time, I am able to enjoy, appreciate, understand and like slowly built music. Not this time though.

However, melodies are standard Post Rock, so for big fans of this genre, this album should have certain appeal.
