5 stars Ben Sharp is the mind behind the one-man-project Cloudkicker. "Beacons" is third album, and comparing it to the previous ones it becomes aparent how much he has improved in his compositional skills. The single songs and the album as a whole are telling a story of remarkable intensity, which is even more of an achievement because the album doesn't include any lyrics, just the titles of the songs give a general idea of the topic. Musically there are similiarities to bands like Explosions in the Sky or Russian Circles in the general Progressive Post Metal genre. Cloudkicker however conquers new terrain with this album, combining Meshuggah-like riffing with meoldious parts that slowly build up tension, as often used by Godspeed You! Black Emperor. For every fan of this genre, this album is a definite must have! You can download it on Cloudkickers bandcamp homepage, for a price you can choose yourself.
