This is what ASMZ don’t have – variety of moods and arrangements. GYBE were a brilliant band, a bit “samey” at times too, but never plain boring or predictable. ASMZ has this little flaw – they are predictable, maybe, not as much as any other Post-Rock band, but still not enough interesting to sit through the whole album without losing attention sometimes. Astonishing sense of melody (that marks every GYBE epic) is also missing there. But there are vocals, acoustic (almost chamber!) sound and the same way depressing and dark nature of the music. Recommended for ASMZ/GYBE/related stuff devotees, but don’t expect revelations there.
