I love these guys, they aren't much technical (if any), but their blend of different textures works really well and it is definitely a very unique sounding band. 

As expected for progressive rock, they have a couple of epics, although far from the 10-20 minutes standard of some symphonic bands. Vote in which one is your favorite! Tongue

I've still yet to get back on the bike with these guys tbh; thought their debut was superb, but their 2nd and 3rd albums much less so... it's something I intend to remedy this year, but life just gets in the way of listening. I've gone for Bright Ambassadors thus far...

General opinion is that the newer albums aren't as good as their first one, but still a lot better than AVO and H&A. As for myself, I don't think their first album are that good, so I enjoyed more Eupnea (their best, imo) and Above Cirrus.

A favorite band of mine since their debut.

When they are good, they are really extremely good, IMO. 

Love their modern take on space rock such as on Silent Genesis, which gets my vote.

I'm afraid their '22 output 'Above Cirrus' is not as great as their previous releases. But it's a grower so who knows...and relistening Scream Sideways I must admit it's a really great track!

Eupnea was in second place on my album of the year 2020 list. Can't remember where their debut was but it would have been high on my AOTY 2006. Never really got into Amor and Hammer...

If I rank the tracks, it would be something like this:

Eupnea
Ghosts & Typhons
Scream Sideways
Arrival / Intention Craft
Silent Genesis
New Kind of Evil
Bright Ambassadors
The Gloaming

I'm not really familiar with this band, though I like what I've heard. The Bright Ambassadors of Morning really impressed me though, so it gets my vote.
