3 stars This is an album of nice music, and nice melodies, but poor, even amatuerish mixing, engineering and production. At times it sounds as if the guitar effects have been created with the cheapest effects pedals (especially the distortion, e.g. on "the Very Day" and "Rebirth"), and the mix often sounds first-time home studio-ish. Also, the music and vocal moods often sound very out of sync with one another--as if they were perfoming two different songs (e.g. "The Very Day," "The Betrayal," and "By the Lake (Seeding)"). This band needs time to gel, get seasoned, learn better mixing and engineering skills. Most of the music is nice though rather uncomplicated. Some times reminded of PF or PT ("Copyrighted Genes") others like MAGENTA and CHROMA KEY. Vocal talents are reminiscent of BJORK, EDIE BRICKELL, and DIDO (best on "Rebirth"). "What Will Be" is a pretty awesome song. Definitely a band to watch as they develop and grow.
