4 stars "One Time for All Time" followed the same line of 65 Days of Static's debut "Fall of Math" - another interesting work, in their superb and unique fusion of post-rock with electronic music and math rock. The combination of programmed thundering beats along with the band's drummer reaches new heights of prominence here - authentic sonic screams after the usual soft main theme. Piano continues to be the melodic main force, while electronic elements are more spacey here, particularly in "Await Rescue". Rhythmic section had some improvements, not only with more vigorous tempo changes but as also with the add of some disconcerting small pauses a la Fugazi, as in the starter, the symphonic "Welcome to the Times" or in "65 Doesn't Understand You". Industrial sound effects are still present in the piano layered "Mean low Water", or in the two growers for the album's unquestionable cathartic point, "65 Doesn't Understand You", reaching levels of subtleness perhaps not achieved in the predecessor whilst adding one of their most vigorous sonic attempts. The album ends with the majestic moan of "Radio Protector", unsurprisingly, lead by pianos.

65 Days of Static continued to explore their unique post-rock sound. It does not bring much of new: some minor symphonic nuances here and there, a somewhat more prominent rhythmic section and a generally more spacey feeling. After all, their revolution was in the previous album - still, achieves to be near as convincing as it.

TRoTZ | 4/5 |
