4 stars And so this epic tale of Math-Rock started. Don Caballero, mighty mafia godfather has helped this genre to gain prominence, might not by corrupting police officers, but by turning not so clever noise into something more complex, more enjoyable. Of course, through this record, there can be heard influences of Post-Rock, but ambient parts are very rare. Also, if we part this record on two halfs, then second half would be more subtle one, while first half is where most chaos lies (even the very last track Belted Sweater truly returns to noiseland. But it's organized chaos, calculated (as is tradition in Math Rock).

It's not flaw at all that all these tracks are instrumental (except Got a Mile, Got a Mile, Got an Inch which features some samples of TV programmes), actually I think it's (not tits, sorry for this pun, it was irresistible) far better this way.

4(+), for diversity, for not playing the same over and over again (these tracks are progressing forward) and for helping to set the genre.

And most importantly, for enjoyable record.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
