    I like them.I like them even more than RADIOHEAD and other bands they are compared with.Beautiful Post-Rock mixed with Space Rock with noticable influences from the older bands ("Gangsters" is probably inspired by VDGG/KC manner, while "Stranger and Strangers" is more Kraut/Psychedelic-like)."Curved sphere", my favourite epic of them, has some beautiful parts with Hackettesque guitar."Hide Inside", my favourite song of them, is perfect choise for radio and TV broadcasting.Another favourite one, melancholic "The Drowning Man in my Pool", is one of the best examples of Post-Rock SONG.Awesome!!!

Still wonder why the hell they are Prog-Related...This is one of the best MODERN PROG bands ever!!!

I agree, i've been liking them since 'godbye to dusk...' came out. They used to be in art rock i think, they should return there.

I gave their record a 4.5 out of 5 in my review of "A farewell to dusk,goodbye to dawn".I'm 45 years old and i mention that because my 22 year old daughter cannot stop listening to them,she's hooked big time.I agree there are some post-rock similarities and RADIOHEAD too comes to mind.They are great at creating both atmosphere and beauty.An amazing band!
