3 stars OK, this could have been great, great compositions, not almost, but totally classical like, but with very distinct Prog touch. You can feel the atmosphere better than ever before I experienced in Post Rock genre.

However, there's one thing that puts me away / off / out a lot and it's vocal department. It's terrible, it's annoying. He sounds like drunk emo youngster, even he's actually good, in a hippie way of this word, looking guy who handles his guitar well.

But not in all tracks, it's very tiresome, very unbearable in first song, because it just doesn't fit here. This song should be symphonic, should be nice and pleasant. Strings are great, other instruments are great, but his damned singing isn't simply fitting here.

I see that one reviewer before noticed this too (I looked on previous reviews to see if someone sees things like me). However, second song isn't slow and harmonic (would be harmonic if it wasn't for vocals), second song is different. Fast paced, very suitable for this kind of voice.

There are also instrumental only parts, so they're OK too, but the last song is again number one type. Sadly.

3(+), I don't like to mock vocalist so much, but what can I do if this is a barrier that prevents me from enjoying it to the full. It could have been good. Especially given that it's not usual to have vocals in Post Rock. Guess why.
