4 stars This band, for better or worse, should become huge as they cross so many musical genres and are building up a pretty dedicated cult following , mainly by playing live. Pre-emptive false rapture is as eclectic an album as you could possibly require. If like myself you want to hear something different and something which will surprise you, yet you can still dance to (on some tracks) and so possibly take your girlfriend to a gig without losing credibility then this is your band. Think of a mix between sun-ra, funkadelic, metal and prog and you're getting close. Their audience ranges from 50+ proggers, female students, mixed races, metallers - anyone really.

Everything is here - great playing, diversity, strange time signiatures and structures but without being as cliched as many modern prog bands. The band members fluctuate but any band which utilises bass, keyboards, bassoon, violin, guitar, drums, cello and more - probably all at the same time, gets my vote. The new tracks they are playing post PEFR are sounding great too. They are doing a gig soon with Krautrock legends Cluster.

There is a couple of slightly less great tracks so i'll give them 4/5, but i'd recommend this cd to anyone.
