Not bad. I liked the previous one a fair bit. Still the same lineup and all that??

Oh god!
 
That is magical. Perhaps, my only wish was more percussion, BUT no vocals, plus 392 woodwind instruments is a recipe for awesome for me. Thanks!

Might have to check it out, although I'm not yet sure what I think of Combat Astronomy. XD

So just got this and had my first listen today...damn. It is amazing. Definitely my favorite thing produced by them. Perhaps my only complaint is that its a little too repitious in rhythm. But the sonic palette is pretty large and the colors produced by them are wonderful. Definitely in my top 3 of 2011 at this point.
