4 stars Second studio album released by this German band is a great one. I believe some readers will think I am joking, but I am really not!

Excellent melodies, excellent arrangements, excellent musicianship. If you want to know what the post-rock is just listen to this album.

For sure, there is the dark side of all this excellence. According to genre's rules, the compositions are repetitive enough, sound is well balanced, but on a very safe sound. And as so often happens in post-rock - almost no vocals. So - excellent classic post-rock album and average progressive album. Yes, both in one at the same time.

All recommendations are coming from the sentence as above: if you're heavy post-rock fan without wish to find some new horizons in that music - just take it! If you're newcomer to style and would like to know, what good standard post-rock is - take it! But if you're bored of all these repetitive constructions, very limited genre frames and millions of clones all around - this album hardly is your cup of tea.

Personally me, I believe this albums is more good than bad. Even without experiments, this music is great whenever perfectly played and composed.
