3 stars FMTM plays very powerful kind of Post-Rock, usually mid-tempo, well-structured, with obvious Math-Rock hints and political background, which is expressed in samples from TV and radio programs. This is what speaks against the band, IMHO, because unlike in GY!BE/ASMZ case here these ideas don't create a harmony with music but only ruin some atmosphere already created by this music itself. But for me, as a non-English speaker, it's pretty easy to turn my English knowledge off to fully enjoy the music side of the record. FMTM are a trio, and their sound and manner are pretty much like another trio have - I mean RUSSIAN CIRCLES whom I happened to experience before FMTM. The same way heavy, almost bordering Metal, groovy and memoralbe, with some catchy tunes and tracks ranging from 5 to 8 minutes, The Impossible Leap... is not just another good guitar-driven Post-Rock record...but in the same time not a cornerstone for the genre. Below average (even despite these sometimes annoying samples) and definitely worthy. 3.5 stars. RECOMMENDED!!!
