4 stars Now this is what I'm talking about. It's been a good while since I've heard an up-and-coming band with so much potential. Sure, Pet Slimmers of the Year's debut was a little less than amazing, but ...And The Sky Fell is pretty damned good, if I do say so.

The production is much better, smoother and more professional, without being over-polished. The melodies and riffs seem more inspired, while the percussion hovers around the periphery, as with their earlier release, threatening to derail the compositions into expansive spacey trips. The music feels a little more relaxed when the band kicks back, and more intense and suffocating when they decide to engage the distortion pedal. Having said this, there's more to Pet Slimmers of the Year than just the loud/soft dynamic. Indeed, they aren't afraid to lace compositions with melodic clean sections layered with delay and other effects. The expansive nature of the music is refreshing and immediately absorbing. It's not subversive and quirky, but rather restrained and diligent. While I would go so far as to describe this release as minimalist, don't for a second think that it's boring. This is the kind of music you can lose yourself in, and while post-metal isn't going to be everyone's favourite drop, it's just one of those things you can enjoy in the right context.

So, well done Pet Slimmers of the Year, I'm impressed with what you have done so far; but the true test is where you'll go from here. If this latest release is anything to go by, the band appear to have a good future ahead of them.

3 stars While not as coherent and consistent as their 2010 release '...And The Sky Fell', this debut self titled EP shows and immense amount of promise from this young British instrumental post-metal band. They definitely have their own style, which is refreshing to hear, given that too many bands (usually unwillingly or out of respect) tend to copy the styles of the fore-running artists. Pet Slimmers of the Year focus on expansive compositions, traversing the whole gamut of soft, mellow post rock and melodious distortion. They err upon math-rock in sections, seemingly floating above the temptation to deform into a fluid free-composition jam time. Indeed, as is common with this style of music, it's intentionally uplifting and dynamic, while sometimes crushing and discordant. Because the band prefer to let the music breathe a little, there's plenty of time to soak in the sound-scapes and pick upon the subtleties in the composition. Unfortunately, the production is a little too murky - even with the distorted and grimy aspects of the music, it still feels somewhat underdone. It's not a bad production by some underground metal standards, but there is some room for improvement (which they do make upon the follow-up release).

While this EP didn't exactly overpower my senses, there is no doubt that Pet Slimmers of the Year have immense promise; they also possess the best band name I've come across in quite some time. Seriously, I never thought putting my pet on a diet would sound so good.
