5 stars This is simply the BEST POST-ROCK ALBUM ever released on ex-USSR area!!!

And c'mon, forget about this reservation - 'Pieonear' is one of the best albums in Post-Rock in a whole and one of the best albums I'm honoured to own. Three LOOONG tracks, album reaching 71 minutes of playing time, without any sign of boredom or too-long section in there! Perfect? Dare I say YES?!!!

Opener begins with subtle piano piece, which suddenly changes into up-tempo march-like theme. Long psychedelic part follows, almost 'ambient rock', with some vocals and shoegaze feel to it. Progression goes on, and closing section enters, peaceful and mellow at first, but then heavy and almost stoner-rock alike.

'Psychoparasite' is indeed a thing to eat your brains out! 38-min long, with a record of first spring rain thrown into it, it varies so much in themes and sections, that it could have created a separate independent album! Ranging from quiet mood (just before the 'rain' sample and right after it) to almost hysteric riffing (slooow and dooomy, around 8-9 minute!), 'Psychoparasite' keeps you sharp through the whole timing of it, from relaxing intro to heavy coda!

But my favourite here is 'Lemon Smell Street' for sure, the closing track, which begins from SLUDGE riff, continues with melancholic Godspeedian line (some Post-Metal thrown in as well!) and ends with one of my favourite tunes from the band - marchy Ennio Morricone-like theme, SO cinematic! An additional coda (flute and acoustic guitar play so simple but touching harmony) closes the album, which is so flawless that it can be called A MASTERPIECE!

Seriously, do yourself a favour and check this one out. I mean it! Highly, extremely recommended!!!
